BACKGROUND The budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae can bud in two spatially programmed patterns: axial or bipolar. In the axial budding pattern, cells polarize and divide adjacent to the previous site of cell separation, in response to a cell-division remnant, which includes Bud3p, Bud4p and septin proteins. This paper investigates the role of an(More)
BACKGROUND Yeast cells polarize, bud, and divide in either of two genetically programmed patterns: axial or bipolar. The Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene BUD1 (also known as RSR1) encodes a Ras-related GTPase critical for selection of a bud sites in these patterns. To distinguish between possible mechanisms of Bud1p action, we have examined the function and(More)
