Protein prenylation is a crucial post-translational modification largely mediated by two heterodimeric enzyme complexes, farnesyltransferase and geranylgeranyltransferase type-I (GGTase-I), each composed of a shared α-subunit and a unique β-subunit. GGTase-I enzymes are validated drug targets that contribute to virulence in Cryptococcus neoformans and to the yeast-to-hyphal transition in Candida albicans. Therefore, we sought to investigate the importance of the α-subunit, RamB, and the β-subunit, Cdc43, of the A. fumigatus GGTase-I complex to hyphal growth and...
