    Direct comparison of clathrin-mediated endocytosis in budding and fission yeast reveals conserved and evolvable features

    Yidi Sun et al.
    Quantitative comparison of clathrin-mediated endocytosis in budding and fission yeast identified conserved mechanisms and species-specific adaptations with broad implications that extend from yeast to humans.

    Ubiquitination-dependent control of sexual differentiation in fission yeast

    Fabrizio Simonetti et al.
    The RNA-binding protein Mmi1 targets its own inhibitor Mei2 for ubiquitination by the E3 ubiquitin ligase Not4/Mot2 in order to preserve its role in meiotic mRNA decay during vegetative growth.

    Atg1 kinase in fission yeast is activated by Atg11-mediated dimerization and cis-autophosphorylation

    Zhao-Qian Pan et al.
    A mechanistic dissection of how autophagy kinase Atg1 is activated in fission yeast reveals surprising differences from the known Atg1 activation mechanisms previously defined in budding yeast.

    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.

    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.

    An aging-independent replicative lifespan in a symmetrically dividing eukaryote

    Eric C Spivey et al.
    A high throughput, full lifespan microscopic analysis reveals that fission yeast does not age but has a finite replicative lifespan.

    Competition between Tropomyosin, Fimbrin, and ADF/Cofilin drives their sorting to distinct actin filament networks

    Jenna R Christensen et al.
    Both cooperative and competitive associations of actin binding proteins with actin filaments help drive the self-organization of functionally diverse F-actin networks in fission yeast.

    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.

    Cooperation between tropomyosin and α-actinin inhibits fimbrin association with actin filament networks in fission yeast

    Jenna R Christensen et al.
    The contractile ring actin binding proteins tropomyosin Cdc8 and a-actinin Ain1 synergize to effectively compete with the endocytic actin patch protein fimbrin Fim1 for associating with F-actin networks.

    Ragulator and GATOR1 complexes promote fission yeast growth by attenuating TOR complex 1 through Rag GTPases

    Kim Hou Chia et al.
    The Rag-family GTPases, known activators of TOR complex 1 (TORC1), also function as attenuator that prevents deregulated hyperactivation of TORC1 signaling.
