    The yeast mating-type switching endonuclease HO is a domesticated member of an unorthodox homing genetic element family

    Aisling Y Coughlan et al.
    A family of homing genetic elements that look like inteins but work differently is the progenitor of the endonuclease that enables Saccharomyces cerevisiae to change its mating type.

    Homing Genetic Elements: Mobile DNAs and switching mating types in yeast

    Laura N Rusche
    The gene that allows budding yeast cells to switch their mating type evolved from a newly discovered family of genes named weird HO.

    Kin discrimination in social yeast is mediated by cell surface receptors of the Flo11 adhesin family

    Stefan Brückner et al.
    Structural, biophysical and physiological analysis reveals how yeast cell surface adhesins evolved to confer self-nonself discrimination in single cells and whole populations.

    Structural basis for Scc3-dependent cohesin recruitment to chromatin

    Yan Li et al.
    The Cohesin subunit Scc3 contains a hook-shaped domain that binds to DNA substrate, thus revealing that Cohesin-chromatin transactions are driven not only by topological interactions, but also by direct protein-DNA contacts.
