Identification, characterization and heparin binding capacity of a spore wall, virulence protein from the shrimp microsporidian, Enterocytozoon hepatopenaei (EHP)

PMCID: 5848443
PMID: 29530076
DOI: 10.1186/s13071-018-2758-z

[…] ERTm2, Nematocida sp. ERTm6, Enterocytozoon bieneusi, Encephalitozoon intestinalis, Encephalitozoon cuniculi, Nosema bombycis and Nosema ceranae). These were downloaded from public databases NCBI and MicrosporidiaDB. Ortholog clusters in which these proteins belonged were identified by initially querying the proteins from all 23 microsporidian genomes against their own database by using BLASTP wit […]


Functional characterization of an aquaporin from a microsporidium, Nosema bombycis

PLoS One
PMCID: 5531513
PMID: 28749993
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0181703

[…] The NbAQP gene in N. bombycis was identified using the MicrosporidiaDB (http://microsporidiadb.org/micro/) and MIPModDB (http://bioinfo.iitk.ac.in/MIPModDB/index.html) databases. The following PCR primers were designed based on homologous gene sequences: […]


A Recent Whole Genome Duplication Divides Populations of a Globally Distributed Microsporidian

Mol Biol Evol
PMCID: 4948709
PMID: 27189558
DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msw083

[…] simulated using the random.poisson function in numpy (). Coding, intergenic and genome-wide AT content was calculated directly from the assemblies for published microsporidian genomes downloaded from MicrosporidiaDB (); the list of genomes included in our analysis is provided in supplementary table 3, Supplementary Material online. Linear regressions were performed and visualized using the Python […]


Subtelomere organization in the genome of the microsporidian Encephalitozoon cuniculi: patterns of repeated sequences and physicochemical signatures

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4704409
PMID: 26744270
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-1920-7

[…] ECU03_1510 encodes a truncated HAP2 homologue (123 aa versus 265 aa in S. cerevisiae).The interC and interD gene repository can be found in other Encephalitozoon species sequenced so far according to MicrosporidiaDB. Noteworthy some members of the interC gene family are present in the chromosome coding core region (Additional file : Figure S10). This is also the case of some multigene families cod […]


The Ordospora colligata Genome: Evolution of Extreme Reduction in Microsporidia and Host To Parasite Horizontal Gene Transfer

PMCID: 4313915
PMID: 25587016
DOI: 10.1128/mBio.02400-14

[…] For phylogenomic inferences, the microsporidian protein sequences were retrieved from the MicrosporidiaDB (), SilkPathDB (http://silkpathdb.swu.edu.cn/silkpathdb/), and GenBank databases. Orthologous sequences were identified by BLASTP searches at an E value cutoff of 1E-20 using the O. co […]
