    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

    Multiple short windows of calcium-dependent protein kinase 4 activity coordinate distinct cell cycle events during Plasmodium gametogenesis

    Hanwei Fang et al.
    CDPK4 is a pleiotropic regulator controlling initiation of DNA replication, mitotic spindle assembly and flagellar activation during the early stages of Plasmodium transmission.

    Natural depletion of histone H1 in sex cells causes DNA demethylation, heterochromatin decondensation and transposon activation

    Shengbo He et al.
    Transposon activation during male gametogenesis is caused by interactions between DNA demethylation and linker histone H1, developmental depletion of which promotes pollen fertility.

    A divergent cyclin/cyclin-dependent kinase complex controls the atypical replication of a malaria parasite during gametogony and transmission

    Aurélia C Balestra et al.
    Multiple steps of the atypical cell cycles underlying Plasmodium gametogony are controlled by a divergent cyclin/cyclin-dependent complex.

    ATR/Mec1 prevents lethal meiotic recombination initiation on partially replicated chromosomes in budding yeast

    Hannah G Blitzblau, Andreas Hochwagen
    During meiosis, budding yeast use a checkpoint involving the protein Mec1 to prevent the formation of double-strand breaks in DNA that has not completed replication.

    ketu mutant mice uncover an essential meiotic function for the ancient RNA helicase YTHDC2

    Devanshi Jain et al.
    The mouse gene Ythdc2 exemplifies an evolutionarily ancient family of crucial regulators of the transition from germline stem cell divisions to meiosis.

    Divergent kleisin subunits of cohesin specify mechanisms to tether and release meiotic chromosomes

    Aaron F Severson, Barbara J Meyer
    Mechanisms that tether and release replicated sister chromatids to produce sperm and eggs rely extensively on meiotic cohesin complexes that are endowed with unexpectedly different properties specified by a single interchangeable subunit, the α-kleisin.
