Putative pheromone receptors in Microbotryum. violaceum. A) Diagram of the two putative pheromone receptor genes identified in the EST library of Microbotryum violaceum, respectively linked to the A1 and A2 mating type. B) Alignment of the two putative pheromone receptors of Microbotryum violaceum with the most similar published protein sequences of other fungi: B2 and B-alpha of Schizophyllum commune, the transmembrane pheromone receptor of Coprinellus disseminatus and Rcb3B5 of Coprinopsis cinerea.
