A predicted ribitol transporter in C. grayi. a Differential transcription in coculture vs. monoculture of five putative sugar transporters in C. grayi. They were the top five BLAST hits obtained by querying the genome with the sequences of two functionally validated fungal D-sorbitol/D-mannitol/ribitol transporters [117]. Only CLAGR_004844-RA is induced in coculture (Co/Mo on Y axis; 1 means no induction.). b CLAGR_004844-RA amino acid sequence. The 12 transmembrane domains [118] are indicated in bold purple. Consensus amino acids for sugar transporters [119, 120] are highlighted in cyan. c Protein phylogeny (PhyML, 100 bootstraps) of the five C. grayi transporters. The green branches correspond to nodes with bootstrap support ≥70%. The C. grayi proteins are labeled brown. The other transporters are identified by GI number and by fungal species. Taxa are also labeled as ascomycetes (Asco) or basidiomycetes (Basidio), the latter used as outgroup. The CLAGR_004844-RA clade is highlighted yellow. Bar indicates amino acid substitutions/site
