The pioneering cell division cycle screens carried out by Hartwell in 1971 first identified septins as genes that are essential for yeast cytokinesis (Hartwell, 1971). However, significant characterization of the evolutionarily conserved proteins they encode did not begin until the late 1980s. Since then, septins have been shown to be fundamental for cytokinesis in many organisms and are recognized as important components of the cytoskeleton. In addition to cytokinesis, septins have been… CONTINUE READING
