Poly(ADP-ribose)-binding zinc finger motifs in DNA repair/checkpoint proteins
Post-translational modification (PTM) of proteins plays an important part in mediating protein interactions and/or the recruitment of specific protein targets. PTM can be mediated by the addition ofExpand

Scc1/Rad21/Mcd1 is required for sister chromatid cohesion and kinetochore function in vertebrate cells.
Proteolytic cleavage of the cohesin subunit Scc1 is a consistent feature of anaphase onset, although temporal differences exist between eukaryotes in cohesin loss from chromosome arms, as distinctExpand

RAD18 and RAD54 cooperatively contribute to maintenance of genomic stability in vertebrate cells
Translesion DNA synthesis (TLS) and homologous DNA recombination (HR) are two major pathways that account for survival after post‐replicational DNA damage. TLS functions by filling gaps on a daughterExpand

Mutations in fission yeast Cut15, an importin α homolog, lead to mitotic progression without chromosome condensation
Chromosome condensation is a major mitotic event. Fission yeast mutations in topoisomerase II and condensin subunits produce the characteristic 'cut' phenotypes, in which the septum bisects theExpand

A novel protein kinase gene ssp1+ is required for alteration of growth polarity and actin localization in fission yeast.
Temperature‐sensitive suppressor mutants were isolated from two fission yeast mutants defective in cell shape control: ppe1, encoding a type 2A‐like protein phosphatase, and sts5, one of 11Expand

Co-activator independent differences in how the metaphase and anaphase APC/C recognise the same substrate
ABSTRACT The Anaphase Promoting Complex or Cyclosome (APC/C) is critical to the control of mitosis. The APC/C is an ubiquitin ligase that targets specific mitotic regulators for proteolysis atExpand

The fission yeast sts5+ gene is required for maintenance of growth polarity and functionally interacts with protein kinase C and an osmosensing MAP-kinase pathway.
Cell morphogenesis is a fundamental phenomenon that involves understanding a number of biological processes including the developmental program, polarity and cell division. Fission yeast sts5 mutantExpand

Cortical morphogenesis during encystment in a ciliate, Euplotes encysticus Yonezawa, 1985.
Cortical morphogenesis occurring during encystment was described on the silver impregnated specimens of Euplotes encysticus. During encystment, the ventral cortex of the cell invaginated into theExpand

A method for the induction of synchronous encystment in a hypotrichous ciliate,Histriculus sp. is described. When the ciliates were transferred into 10× Osterhout's solution at around 7 h afterExpand

Towards a generalized model of encystment (cryptobiosis) in ciliates: a review and a hypothesis.
In this work we propose a generalized model to explain encystment (cryptobiosis) in ciliates. The model is elaborated from both structural and physiological studies previously reported, and someExpand
