Cover story: Pneumocystis have coevolved with their mammalian hosts for millions of years. As a result, there are clear evidences of positive selection in the genes coding for major surface glycoproteins (MSG) in Pneumocystis. Here we question whether there are evidences of positive selection in the genes coding for the biosynthesis of GPI which is the molecule used by Pneumocystis to target MSG to the cell membrane.
