Two relatives of the GIN4 protein kinase family, Cdr1p and Cdr2p, exist in the yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. Although in Saccharomyces cerevisiae GIN4-related kinases influence septin ring organization and septin rings influence the localization and function of GIN4-related protein kinases, it is unknown whether this relationship is conserved in S. pombe. Here, we have probed the relationship between Cdr2p activity and septins and find that Cdr2p and septins are functionally independent… Expand
Molecular control of the Wee1 regulatory pathway by the SAD kinase Cdr2
TLDR
A dissection of how the fission yeast cell geometry network kinase Cdr2 coordinates the recruitment of its major effectors, Wee1, Cdr1 and Mid1, to regulate cell division spatially and temporally is dissection. Expand
Requirements of fission yeast septins for complex formation, localization, and function.
TLDR
The functional requirements for septin complex organization in vivo are established and it is established that Spns1-4p are present throughout interphase as a diffusely localized approximately 8.5S complex containing two copies of each septin linked together as a chain in the order Spn3p-Spn4p- spn1p- Spn2p. Expand
Polar gradients of the DYRK-family kinase Pom1 couple cell length with the cell cycle
TLDR
An intracellular gradient of the dual-specificity tyrosine-phosphorylation regulated kinase Pom1, which emanates from the ends of rod-shaped Schizosaccharomyces pombe cells, serves to measure cell length and control mitotic entry and is found to be a dose-dependent G2–M inhibitor. Expand
Dueling Kinases Regulate Cell Size at Division through the SAD Kinase Cdr2
TLDR
These findings show how activation of the conserved mitotic inducer Cdr2 is integrated with an inhibitory spatial gradient to ensure proper cell size control at mitosis. Expand
A mechanism for how Cdr1/Nim1 kinase promotes mitotic entry by inhibiting Wee1
TLDR
It is shown that both Cdr1 and Cdr2 promote Wee1 phosphorylation in cells, but only Cdr3 inhibits Wee1 kinase activity, and a two-step model for inhibition of Wee1 by Cdr 1 and CDR2 at nodes is proposed. Expand
A mechanism for how Cdr1/Nim1 kinase promotes mitotic entry by inhibiting Wee1
TLDR
It is shown that both Cdr1 and Cdr2 promote Wee1 phosphorylation in cells, but only Cdr3 inhibits Wee1 kinase activity, and a two-step model for inhibition of Wee1 by Cdr 1 and CDR2 at nodes is proposed. 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
Dynamic regulation of Cdr1 kinase localization and phosphorylation during osmotic stress
TLDR
A mechanism that prevents Cdr1 colocalization with its inhibitory target Wee1 during osmotic stress is identified and dynamic regulation of protein localization to cortical nodes might represent a strategy to modulate entry into mitosis under differing environmental conditions. Expand
Defining how Pak1 regulates cell polarity and cell division in fission yeast
ABSTRACT Protein kinases direct polarized growth by regulating the cytoskeleton in time and space, and could play similar roles in cell division. We found that the Cdc42-activated polarity kinaseExpand

Role of the Yeast Gin4p Protein Kinase in Septin Assembly and the Relationship between Septin Assembly and Septin Function
TLDR
The organization of the septins observed in gin4Δ cells and in cells responding to pheromone appears to support some aspects of the model for septin organization suggested previously by Field et al. Expand
The protein kinase Cdr2, related to Nim1/Cdr1 mitotic inducer, regulates the onset of mitosis in fission yeast.
TLDR
It is described that a synthetic lethal genetic screen has identified cdr2(+), a gene that has an important role in the mitotic control and is consistent with a model in which Cdr2 negatively regulates Wee1. Expand
The Septins Are Required for the Mitosis-specific Activation of the Gin4 Kinase
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the septins in budding yeast play an integral role in the mitosis-specific regulation of the Gin4 kinase and that they carry out functions early in mitosis. Expand
Septin-Dependent Assembly of a Cell Cycle-Regulatory Module in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
The apparent dependence of Swe1p degradation on localization of the Hsl1p-Hsl7p-Swe1p module to a site that exists only in budded cells may constitute a mechanism for deactivating the morphogenesis checkpoint when it is no longer needed (i.e., after a bud has formed). Expand
Cell cycle-dependent assembly of a Gin4-septin complex.
TLDR
It is shown that during mitosis Gin4 is assembled into a multiprotein complex that includes Nap1, Bni5, the septins, and at least two molecules of Gin4, which suggests that highly regulated protein-binding events ensure that the Gin4 kinase is activated only during Mitosis and only in association with Shs1, a likely in vivo substrate of Gin 4. Expand
Nim1-related kinases coordinate cell cycle progression with the organization of the peripheral cytoskeleton in yeast.
TLDR
The results reveal for the first time how cells monitor the organization of their cytoskeleton and demonstrate the existence of a cell cycle checkpoint that responds to defects in the peripheral cytos skeleton. Expand
Regulation of cytokinesis by the Elm1 protein kinase in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
TLDR
Genetic and biochemical evidence suggest that Elm1 and the three other septin-localised protein kinases work in parallel pathways to regulate septin behaviour and cytokinesis in budding yeast is regulated by Elm1. Expand
Hsl7 Localizes to a Septin Ring and Serves as an Adapter in a Regulatory Pathway That Relieves Tyrosine Phosphorylation of Cdc28 Protein Kinase inSaccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
Hsl1 and Hsl7 promote proper timing of cell cycle progression by coupling septin ring assembly to alleviation of Swe1-dependent inhibition of Cdc28 and formation of the septin rings provides sites for docking Hsl1, exposing its C terminus and thereby permitting recruitment of HSl7. Expand
Phosphorylation and inactivation of the mitotic inhibitor Weel by the nim1/cdr1 kinase
TLDR
Results show that nim1/cdr1 functions as a positive regulator of mitosis by directly phosphorylating and inactivating the mitotic inhibitor Weel. Expand
The Saccharomyces cerevisiae bud-neck proteins Kcc4 and Gin4 have distinct but partially-overlapping cellular functions.
TLDR
It is reported here that KCC4 and Gin4 have partially overlapping but essentially distinct cellular functions, and it is proposed that the observed functional distinction between Kcc4 and gin4 is due to differences in septin association partners. Expand
