    Quiescence unveils a novel mutational force in fission yeast

    Serge Gangloff et al.
    The quiescence-driven mutational landscape reveals replication-independent mutagenesis as a novel evolutionary force.

    Clathrin modulates vesicle scission, but not invagination shape, in yeast endocytosis

    Wanda Kukulski et al.
    Building on previous work (Picco et al., 2015), we use a hybrid imaging approach to address the role of clathrin during endocytosis: we find that it has no role in shaping or elongating membrane invaginations, but it does contribute to the regularity of vesicle scission.

    Kinesin-6 regulates cell-size-dependent spindle elongation velocity to keep mitosis duration constant in fission yeast

    Lara Katharina Krüger et al.
    The scaling of spindle elongation velocity with cell size is regulated by the amounts of Kinesin-6 molecules and the number of binding sites for the motor to the mitotic spindle.

    Sec17/Sec18 act twice, enhancing membrane fusion and then disassembling cis-SNARE complexes

    Hongki Song et al.
    Sec17 (αSNAP) and Sec18 (NSF) are shown to act twice, to promote fusion per se and to recycle SNAREs after fusion.

    A new class of cyclin dependent kinase in Chlamydomonas is required for coupling cell size to cell division

    Yubing Li et al.
    CDKG1 is a D-cyclin dependent retinoblastoma related protein kinase whose abundance scales with cell size and controls cell division cycle number during multiple fission.

    YTH-RNA-binding protein prevents deleterious expression of meiotic proteins by tethering their mRNAs to nuclear foci

    Yuichi Shichino et al.
    A YTH-domain protein Mmi1 prevents deleterious expression of meiotic proteins by tethering their mRNAs to nuclear foci.

    Histone H2B ubiquitylation represses gametogenesis by opposing RSC-dependent chromatin remodeling at the ste11 master regulator locus

    Philippe Materne et al.
    Building on previous work (Materne et al., 2015), it is shown that the ubiquitylation of histone H2B represses cell differentiation by opposing chromatin remodeling at the promoter of the master regulator of gametogenesis, ste11

    TOR Signaling: A central role for a region in the middle

    Edward Stuttfeld et al.
    A domain called the 'Conserved region in the middle' is responsible for target recognition in the TORC2 complex in fission yeast and the mTORC2 complex in mammals.

    Cortical regulation of cell size by a sizer cdr2p

    Kally Z Pan et al.
    It is shown that fission yeast cells sense their size by measuring their surface area through a membrane-associated sizer protein cdr2p.

    Exportin Crm1 is repurposed as a docking protein to generate microtubule organizing centers at the nuclear pore

    Xun X Bao et al.
    Microtubule nucleation from the nuclear envelope in fission yeast involves repurposing of nuclear export proteins for a non-export-related function, docking cytoplasmic proteins at nuclear pore complexes.
