Abstract

We report here the cloning and analysis of the gene (Crp) encoding cryparin (CRP) and the suppression of the accumulation of its mRNA by a double-stranded RNA virus. CRP belongs to a group of fungal hydrophobic cell surface proteins and has sequence similarity to cerato-ulmin, a phytotoxin produced by Ophiostoma ulmi, the Dutch elm disease pathogen. Transcripts of the Crp gene represent almost 25% of the mRNA of the fungal cell during the peak of CRP production.
