    Snf1/AMPK promotes the formation of Kog1/Raptor-bodies to increase the activation threshold of TORC1 in budding yeast

    James E Hughes Hallett et al.
    The key Target of Rapamycin Complex (TORC1) component Kog1 moves into bodies during glucose starvation to limit reactivation of the complex.

    Aneuploidy as a cause of impaired chromatin silencing and mating-type specification in budding yeast

    Wahid A Mulla et al.
    Genetic analyses reveal that purely quantitative changes in the relative copy number of chromosomes can be sufficient to disrupt the epigenetic mechanisms that define the cells' differentiated state.

    Heat stress promotes longevity in budding yeast by relaxing the confinement of age-promoting factors in the mother cell

    Sandro Baldi et al.
    To promote longevity under heat stress shares yeast aging factors with progeny through a down-regulation of the diffusion barrier in the membranes between the mitotic cells.

    The glyoxylate shunt is essential for desiccation tolerance in C. elegans and budding yeast

    Cihan Erkut et al.
    Roundworms and yeast can survive extreme desiccation only by switching their metabolism into a gluconeogenic mode and producing very high amounts of trehalose via the glyoxylate shunt.

    Local chromosome context is a major determinant of crossover pathway biochemistry during budding yeast meiosis

    Darpan Medhi et al.
    Different homologous recombination pathways are dominant in different regions of meiotic chromosomes, indicating that chromosome structure influences recombination biochemistry.

    The structure of the Ctf19c/CCAN from budding yeast

    Stephen M Hinshaw, Stephen C Harrison
    Reconstitution and cryo-EM reconstruction of the yeast Ctf19 complex (constitutive centromere associated network, or CCAN, in other organisms) shows how inner kinetochore proteins assemble.

    Meiotic cellular rejuvenation is coupled to nuclear remodeling in budding yeast

    Grant A King et al.
    A meiotic nuclear remodeling event mediates cellular rejuvenation through elimination of senescence factors.

    Homeostatic control of START through negative feedback between Cln3-Cdk1 and Rim15/Greatwall kinase in budding yeast

    Nicolas Talarek et al.
    Inhibition of phosphatases by kinases develops Whi5 phosphorylation and cell cycle function in low cyclin-dependent kinase activity.

    H2A histone-fold and DNA elements in nucleosome activate SWR1-mediated H2A.Z replacement in budding yeast

    Anand Ranjan et al.
    Specific elements of the canonical nucleosome are recognized by the multi-component SWR1 chromatin remodeler for ATP-dependent replacement of H2A-H2B dimers with H2A.Z-H2B.

    Evolving a 24-hr oscillator in budding yeast

    Gregg A Wildenberg, Andrew W Murray
    New complex traits can evolve through the elimination of genes in multiple unrelated pathways, rather than through the creation of new gene functions.
