F-actin and associated myosins are thought to take part in a wide range of cellular processes, like motility and contraction, polarized growth, and secretion. The reagent 2,3-butanedione monoxime (BDM) is a well characterized inhibitor of the contraction of vertebrate muscle that reversibly affects myosin function and influences the intracellular concentration of Ca2+. Here we describe the influence of BDM on growth and division of the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. At concentrations… CONTINUE READING
