Pneumocystis carinii is fungus which is a frequent cause of severe pneumonia in immunocompromised individuals. The P. carinii genome contains the PRT1 subtelomeric multigene family that encodes a kexin-like serine protease which is expressed on the surface of P. carinii. Analysis of the sequence of the carboxy-terminal sequence of many copies of PRT1 showed that they contained motifs characteristic of a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor signal sequence.
