Arthroderma benhamiae (the teleomorph of Trichophyton mentagrophytes) is a fungal dermatophtye (Arthrodermataceae) which causes highly inflammatory cutaneous infections such as tinea corporis (ringworm) in animals and humans. This species is usually contracted through contact with rodents especially guinea pigs. It is an emerging model organism for dermatophytes because it is comparatively fast growing, it can complete many aspects of its life cycle in the lab, and a guinea pig infection model and a system for targeted gene deletion in the fungus has been established.
The assembled genome of A. benhamiae is 22.3 Mb and has 7,980 predicted protein coding sequences. Genomic analysis revealed several secreted proteases whose role in pathogenicity was confirmed experimentally during keratin degradation by the dermatophtye.
