The genome sequence and gene models of Spraguea lophii 42_110 were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from Ensembl Fungi on April 11, 2020. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by Ensembl and is therefore not automatically updated. The JGI Annotation Pipeline was used to add additional functional annotation to the author's chromosomes and proteins.

Spraguea lophii is an intracellular parasite in the phylum Microsporidia. These parasites infect host cells by sending out a fine tube which pierces the host cell and is used to pass the spore contents into the host cell cytoplasm. This species infects the nervous tissues of the Monkfish Lophius piscatorius causing large cysts.
