In an exponentially growing wild-type fission yeast culture a size control mechanism ensures that mitosis is executed only if the cells have reached a critical size. However, there is some scattering both in cell length at birth (BL) and in cycle time (CT). By computational simulations we show here that this scattering cannot be explained solely by asymmetric cell division, therefore we assume that nuclear division is a stochastic, asymmetric process as well. We introduce an appropriate… CONTINUE READING
