Historical Background

Septins were initially identified in the budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, as genes essential for cytoplasmic division (Hartwell 1971; Hartwell et al. 1970). While the isolation and characterization of yeast mutants with defects in cell-cycle control yielded a Nobel Prize for Leland Hartwell, septin mutants which...
