Evolution of functional and structural eukaryotic proteins in pathogenic microorganisms.

Pathogenic microorganisms are constantly evolving to adapt to new environments and evade host defenses. This adaptation often involves changes in the structure and function of their proteins. Eukaryotic proteins, in particular, play key roles in pathogenesis and are therefore a target for drug development. Recent studies have shed light on the evolutionary mechanisms driving the diversification of eukaryotic proteins in pathogenic microorganisms. These mechanisms include gene duplication, horizontal gene transfer, and rapid evolution of protein domains. Understanding the evolution of eukaryotic proteins in pathogenic microorganisms is crucial for the development of new therapies and the identification of drug targets.
