Identification and Characterisation of a Novel Protein FIP-sch3 from Stachybotrys chartarum.
 

Author(s): Shuying Li, Leiming Zhao, Wenyi Xu, Zhonghao Jiang, Jun Kang, Fengzhong Wang, Fengjiao Xin

Journal:

 

In this study, a novel FIP named FIP-sch3 has been identified and characterised. FIP-sch3 was identified in the ascomycete Stachybotrys chartarum, making it the second FIP to be identified outside the order of Basidiomycota. Recombinant FIP-sch3 (rFIP-shc3) was produced in Escherichia ...
