Itaconate cluster composition of selected Ustilaginaceae and a phylogenetic tree of these genes. a Phylogenetic tree based on the DNA sequences of itaconate clusters of different Ustilaginaceae. The optimal tree with the sum of branch length = 1.88603985 is shown. The evolutionary distances are in the units of 0.05 base substitutions per site. b Itaconate cluster comparison of selected Ustilaginaceae. Numbers given show sequence identity as percentage compared to the reference strain U. maydis MB215 using global protein sequence multiple alignment tool (BLOSUM 62). Superscript number indicate number of exons for each gene. Absent genes are indicated with a dash (-)
