|SMART accession number:||SM00672|
|Interpro abstract (IPR006598):|
Cryptococcus neoformans is a pathogenic fungus which most commonly affects the central nervous system and causes fatal meningoencephalitis primarily in patients with AIDS. This fungus produces a thick extracellular polysaccharide capsule which is well recognised as a virulence factor. CAP10 is required for capsule formation and virulence [(PUBMED:10482503)].
