rec7 is involved in intra- and intergenic meiotic recombination in all tested regions of the genome of the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. Segregational analysis in a rec7 gene disruption mutant revealed frequent occurrence of two-spored asci. Spores giving rise to diploid colonies were shown to derive from skipping of the second meiotic division.(More)
The dimorphic fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces japonicus has proved to be an excellent experimental model for the investigation of the eukaryotic cell. Here we show that it has a haplontic life cycle, in which the diploid phase is confined to the zygote. To make it amenable to genetic and molecular analysis, we generated genetic markers and cloned a(More)
The establishment of growth polarity in Schizosaccharomyces pombe cells is a combined function of the cytoplasmic cytoskeleton and the shape of the cell wall inherited from the mother cell. The septum that divides the cylindrical cell into two siblings is formed midway between the growing poles and perpendicularly to the axis that connects them. Since the(More)
The order Schizosaccharomycetales contains a dimorphic and two yeast species. Sch. japonicus can form both yeast cells and mycelium, depending on the substrate and the culturing conditions. Sch. pombe is a strictly unicellular organism, but it can be forced to form mycelial cell chains by inactivating members of the sep gene family. The mutations in most of(More)
Cytokinesis in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces begins by formation of a medially placed actomyosin ring, continues by progressive development of a septum, and is completed by cleavage of the mature septum to bring about cell separation. The cytological analysis of the Schizosaccharomyces pombe morphomutants sph2-3 and sep1-1 presented here(More)
