Genome evolution in mushrooms: insights from the assembled chromosomes of the basidiomycete Coprinopsis cinerea (Coprinus cinereus).
The crazy FunK1 family
The FunK1 family encodes very divergent kinases, and is found only in multicellular fungi, both in the Ascomycetes and Basidiomycetes. There is a huge expansion of the family in Coprinopsis, to 133 members, with considerable diversity within the family. Many of them map to duplicated regions, inculding 59 to a short region near the end of chromosome 9.
More Odd Kinases
Coprinopsis also has several other PKL fold kinases that may or may not be protein kinases, and further extend the sequence range of this class. These have been classified under the group 'PKL' in KinBase.
