  • a Number of clones in 822 sequences from a haustorium-specific cDNA library.

  • b Protein signatures are as follows: CFEM, fungal-specific eight-Cys-containing domain of extracellular membrane proteins, found in some proteins with proposed roles in fungal pathogenesis; KAZAL, family of Ser protease inhibitors; Trehalose PPase, trehalose phosphatases catalyze the dephosphorylation of trehalose-6-phosphate to trehalose and orthophosphate.
