Parasitol Int. 2004;53:277-85 pubmed publisher
    ..cuniculi orthologue (EcPKAc) is a single copy gene. RT-PCR data showed that the EiPKAc gene is expressed in at least one of the intracellular stages during infection of the mammalian host cell by E. intestinalis...

Mutational analysis of Encephalitozoon cuniculi mRNA cap (guanine-N7) methyltransferase, structure of the enzyme bound to sinefungin, and evidence that cap methyltransferase is the target of sinefungin's antifungal activity. J Biol Chem. 2006;281:35904-13 pubmed publisher
    ..We find that the sensitivity of Saccharomyces cerevisiae to growth inhibition by sinefungin is diminished when Abd1 is overexpressed. These results highlight cap methylation as a principal target of the antifungal activity of sinefungin...
