Distribution of MFS families in C. albicans as per transport commission (TC) system and comparison with S. cerevisiae. (A) Family designations were according to TC system as mentioned in the Methods. Ca and Sc stand for C. albicans and S. cerevisiae, respectively. Out of 61 reported MFS families in TC database http://www.tcdb.org/ webcite, 17 were identified in C. albicans as compared to 12 known in S. cerevisiae. (B) A comparison of MFS families between C. albicans and S. cerevisiae revealed that the members of the same family were almost equal in number in both the yeasts. Interestingly, 6 families that were present in C. albicans had no representation in S. cerevisiae whereas there was only one such family in S. cerevisiae which had no counterpart in C. albicans.
