Cell division is a critical and irreversible step in the cell cycle. The strategies that cells follow to regulate the position of the division plane must take into account the global geometry of the cell as well as position of the genetic material to ensure its accurate segregation into daughter cells of a given cell shape and size. Along the years, research on Schizosaccharomyces pombe, a well‐recognized model organism for cell division studies has allowed a detailed molecular understanding of… Expand
The price of independence: cell separation in fission yeast
TLDR
A brief overview of the whole cytokinesis process in fission yeast is given, from the positioning and assembly of the contractile ring to the final step of cell separation, and the problems generated when these processes are not precise are given. Expand
Molecular control of fission yeast cytokinesis.
TLDR
The fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe has emerged as one of the most powerful systems to understand how cytokinesis is controlled molecularly and the basic mechanisms of contractile ring assembly and function deciphered in this model system are highly valuable. Expand
Rewiring of Cellular Division Site Selection in Evolution of Fission Yeasts
TLDR
The data suggest that division site placement is determined by cortical positioning of the actomyosin-plasma membrane linkers and that both identity of the linker and control of its subcellular targeting are highly modular. Expand
Actomyosin Ring Formation and Tension Generation in Eukaryotic Cytokinesis
TLDR
Some of the proposed mechanisms by which eukaryotic cells are able to complete the first three stages of cytokinesis, including a number of myosin motor-independent mechanisms that have been proposed to generate contractile stress in various organisms. Expand
Understanding Regulation of the Cytoskeleton during Cell Cycle Transitions through Examination of Crosstalk between Homologous Fission Yeast Pathways, Septation Initiation Network and Morphogenesis ORB6 Network: A Dissertation
TLDR
Results in Chapter IV demonstrate that failure to inhibit MOR signaling is lethal because cells initiate septum degradation/cell separation before completing cytokinesis thereby emphasizing the importance of cross-regulation between the two pathways to prevent initiation of the interphase polarity program during cytokineis. Expand
Comparative biology of cell division in the fission yeast clade.
TLDR
An extraordinary evolutionary plasticity of cytokinesis within the fission yeast clade is discussed and it is argued that the comparative cell biology approach may provide functional insights beyond those afforded by scrutinizing individual model species. Expand
Fission Yeast Nod1 Is a Component of Cortical Nodes Involved in Cell Size Control and Division Site Placement
TLDR
It is concluded that Nod1 specifies the division site by localising Gef2 to the mitotic cell middle in a cdc12-112 mutant in which nucleation of the actin ring is impaired. Expand
Anillin/Mid1p interacts with the ECSRT-associated protein Vps4p and mitotic kinases to regulate cytokinesis in fission yeast
TLDR
A direct physical interaction is demonstrated between Mid1p and the endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT)-associated protein Vps4p and anillin/Mid1p, and how this protein regulates cytokinesis is explored. Expand
Anillin‐related protein Mid1 regulates timely formation of the contractile ring in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces japonicus
TLDR
The role of S. japonicus Mid1 during mitosis is investigated to compare the molecular mechanisms that determine the cell division site in Schizosaccharomyces to find that Sj Mid1 enhanced CR formation, in a manner possibly similar to that by Sp Mid1. Expand
Distinct levels in Pom1 gradients limit Cdr2 activity and localization to time and position division
TLDR
It is demonstrated that distinct levels in Pom1 gradients delineate a medial Cdr2 domain, for cell division placement, and control its activity, for mitotic commitment. Expand

Mechanisms controlling division-plane positioning.
TLDR
This work describes the spatial regulatory mechanisms operating in the fission yeast model system, where a detailed molecular understanding of cytokinesis has been achieved, and targets a major factor controlling the position of the division plane, the anillin-like protein Mid1. Expand
The Cell-End Factor Pom1p Inhibits Mid1p in Specification of the Cell Division Plane in Fission Yeast
TLDR
Computational and experimental results support a model in which both positive cues from the medial nucleus and negative cue from the cell tips specify the position of the division plane, and evidence that pom1p, a DYRK-family protein kinase that forms a concentration gradient emanating from the nongrowing cell end, inhibits mid1p is provided.

Cell separation and the maintenance of cell integrity during cytokinesis in yeast: the assembly of a septum
TLDR
Throughout this review, the different molecular cues involved in septum formation in yeast are highlighted, from the initial site selection to the final action of hydrolytic enzymes that produce cell separation. Expand
The dmf1/mid1 gene is essential for correct positioning of the division septum in fission yeast.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that a cytokinesis factor may travel on both microtubule and actin networks to the future site of cell division, and three lines of evidence indicated that this cdc12p spot moved on both actin and microtubules. Expand

TLDR
By centrifuging cells to move the nucleus, it is found that the nucleus actively influences the position of contractile ring assembly during early mitosis, and movement of ring fragments together minimizes formation of multiple division sites. Expand
Comparative Analysis of Cytokinesis in Budding Yeast, Fission Yeast and Animal Cells
TLDR
To date, this analysis indicates that some of the basic components involved in cytokinesis are conserved from yeast to humans, although their organization into functional machinery that drives cytokineis and the associated regulatory mechanisms bear species-specific features. Expand
Spatial Control of Cytokinesis by Cdr2 Kinase and Mid1/Anillin Nuclear Export
TLDR
It is concluded that Cdr2- and nuclear export-dependent positioning of Mid1 constitute two overlapping mechanisms that relay cell polarity and nuclear positional information to ensure proper division-plane specification. Expand
