    Atypical meiosis can be adaptive in outcrossed Schizosaccharomyces pombe due to wtf meiotic drivers

    María Angélica Bravo Núñez et al.
    The wtf meiotic drivers change the fitness landscape of meiosis in outcrossed Schizosaccharomyces pombe demonstrating that genetic parasites can favor the evolution of variants that disrupt meiotic fidelity.

    Nanoscale architecture of the Schizosaccharomyces pombe contractile ring

    Nathan A McDonald et al.
    Super-resolution microscopy reveals the nanoscale molecular architecture of 29 protein components of a eukaryotic contractile ring relative to the membrane.

    Curvature-induced expulsion of actomyosin bundles during cytokinetic ring contraction

    Junqi Huang et al.
    Cytokinetic actomyosin ring disassembly occurs through a novel mechanism in which the increased ring curvature, generated through contraction, itself promotes the disassembly process.

    A large gene family in fission yeast encodes spore killers that subvert Mendel’s law

    Wen Hu et al.
    Two members of a large fission yeast (Schizosaccharomyces pombe) gene family are shown to act as spore killers that enhance their own transmission into progenies by impeding the maturation of spores not inheriting them.

    Heredity: The gene family that cheats Mendel

    J Dylan Shropshire, Antonis Rokas
    Some alleles of the wtf gene family can increase their chances of spreading by using poisons to kill other alleles, and antidotes to save themselves.

  1. Research: Publication bias and the canonization of false facts

    Silas Boye Nissen et al.
    Publication bias, in which positive results are preferentially reported by authors and published by journals, can restrict the visibility of evidence against false claims and allow such claims to be canonized inappropriately as facts.

    Synergy between Wsp1 and Dip1 may initiate assembly of endocytic actin networks

    Connor J Balzer et al.
    An activator of branching nucleation by Arp2/3 complex directly synergizes with an activator of linear filament nucleation to initiate assembly of actin networks that drive endocytosis.

    Stress-activated MAPK signaling controls fission yeast actomyosin ring integrity by modulating formin For3 levels

    Elisa Gómez-Gil et al.
    Microscopic and biochemical analysis show that the stress-activated MAP kinase pathway targets the formin For3 to modulate actomyosin ring integrity in response to environmental cues.
