Calcium spikes accompany cleavage furrow ingression and cell separation during fission yeast cytokinesis Article (Web of Science)


  • Calcium rises transiently at the division plane during cytokinesis of embryonic cells, but the conservation and function of such calcium transients remain unclear. We discovered similar calcium spikes during fission yeast cytokinesis, and demonstrated that calcium promotes contractile ring constriction and daughter cell integrity.
