    Centromere deletion in Cryptococcus deuterogattii leads to neocentromere formation and chromosome fusions

    Klaas Schotanus, Joseph Heitman
    Centromere deletion in Cryptococcus deuterogattii results in neocentromeres, which span actively expressed genes and at elevated temperatures cen10∆ mutants are unstable leading to chromosome fusion and silencing of the neocentromere.

    Genome rearrangements and pervasive meiotic drive cause hybrid infertility in fission yeast

    Sarah E Zanders et al.
    Rapid acquisition of chromosome rearrangements, together with independently acting transmission distorter alleles on each chromosome, drive near complete sterility in fission yeast hybrids.

    Mechanisms of chromosome biorientation and bipolar spindle assembly analyzed by computational modeling

    Christopher Edelmaier et al.
    A computational model of fission yeast mitosis can interrogate mechanisms required for successful mitosis, the origin of spindle length fluctuations, and spindle force balance during assembly.

    The CDK Pef1 and protein phosphatase 4 oppose each other for regulating cohesin binding to fission yeast chromosomes

    Adrien Birot et al.
    Cohesin loader activity is regulated by phosphorylation of its cohesin substrate.

    Histone H3G34R mutation causes replication stress, homologous recombination defects and genomic instability in S. pombe

    Rajesh K Yadav et al.
    Mutation of Glycine 34 to Arginine within the N-terminal tail of histone H3 alters post-translational modifications on Lysine 36 and is associated with a delay in replication restart, defective homologous recombination and an increase in genomic instability.

    Visualization and functional dissection of coaxial paired SpoIIIE channels across the sporulation septum

    Jae Yen Shin et al.
    SpoIIIE forms a protein channel that spans the two lipid bilayers of the septum and mediates chromosome translocation and reversible membrane fission during Bacilus subtilis sporulation.

    Loss of centromere function drives karyotype evolution in closely related Malassezia species

    Sundar Ram Sankaranarayanan et al.
    The centromeres in Malassezia species, by breakage or inactivation, facilitate genome rearrangements that can result in varying karyotypes and contribute to the evolution of these species.

    Communication between distinct subunit interfaces of the cohesin complex promotes its topological entrapment of DNA

    Vincent Guacci et al.
    The interface formed where Smc3p and Mcd1p bind each other regulates cohesin DNA binding and cohesion by a mechanism independently from its putative role as a DNA exit gate.

    Adaptive evolution of an essential telomere protein restricts telomeric retrotransposons

    Bastien Saint-Leandre et al.
    Evolution strictly preserves telomere stability but rapidly diversifies telomere length regulation in Drosophila.
