  • The cylindrical cells of Schizosaccharomyces pombe grow in length by extension at the ends and not the middle. At the beginning of the cell cycle, growth is restricted to the 'old end', which existed in the previous cycle. Later on, the 'new end', formed from the septum, starts to grow at a point in the cycle that we have called NETO ('new end take-off'). Fluorescence microscopy on cells stained with Calcofluor has been used to study NETO in size mutants, in blocked cdc mutants and with… CONTINUE READING
