Regulation of the ras Pathway in the Fission Yeast Schizosaccharomyces Pombe
Homologs of the mammalian ras genes have been found in the simple unicellular yeasts Saccharomyces cerevisiae (budding yeast) and Schizosaccharomyces pombe (fission yeast) (reviewed in Gibbs and Marshall, 1989). Using classical and molecular genetic approaches considerable progress has been made in understanding the function and regulation of ras in these organisms. In this paper we will describe our recent results on the regulation of the ras pathway in S. pombe.
