Septin dynamics and functions during meiosis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
MetadataShow full item record
The septin family of cytoskeletal proteins play important roles in many cellular processes such as cytokinesis. Septin monomers assemble into non-polar hetero-octamers (or hexamers) that polymerize into higher-order structures. These octameric complexes are remarkably plastic in subunit composition. During vegetative growth, Saccharomyces cerevisiae predominantly use octamers containing Cdc3, Cdc10, Cdc11, Cdc12, and Shs1. A different form of cytokinesis occurs during gametogenesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, wherein the four haploid meiotic products become encased first by the prospore membrane ...
