Cell Polarity: Spot-On Cdc42 Polarization Achieved on Demand
A new study deploys optogenetics to induce the yeast bud on demand, at a site determined by a laser spot. The authors definitively prove that the initiation of cell polarization is driven by the Bem1-mediated positive feedback loop and reveal novel features of its regulation by the cell cycle.
Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform. Clicks to view the full text will be directed to the publisher website, where only users with subscriptions or access through their institution are able to view the full article.
