Family

Kre9/Knh1 family (IPR018466)

Short name: Kre9/Knh1

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Family relationships

None.

Description

This entry includes a group of cell wall synthesis proteins, such as Knh1 and Kre9 from budding yeasts. Kre9 is involved involved in cell wall beta-glucan assembly [PMID: 8413233]. In A. fumigatus these proteins play a role in fungal cell wall organisation [PMID: 16204227]. In Lentinula edodes this family is involved in fruiting body formation, and may have a more general role in signalling in other organisms as it interacts with MAPK [PMID: 17383119]. This entry also includes uncharacterised proteins from fission yeasts, archaea and bacteria.
