    Felipe O Bendezú
    Department of Fundamental Microbiology, Faculty of Biology and Medicine, University of Lausanne, Lausanne, Switzerland
    PLoS ONE 7:e40248. 2012

    Sophie G Martin
    Center for Integrative Genomics, Faculty of Biology and Medicine, University of Lausanne, Genopode Building, 1015 Lausanne, Switzerland
    Nature 459:852-6. 2009
    ..In short cells, Pom1 prevents precocious M-phase entry, suggesting that the higher medial Pom1 levels inhibit Cdr2 and promote a G2 delay. Thus, gradients of Pom1 from cell ends provide a measure of cell length to regulate M-phase entry...
  5. doi request reprint Microtubule-dependent cell morphogenesis in the fission yeast
    Sophie G Martin
    Center for Integrative Genomics, Faculty of Biology and Medicine, University of Lausanne, Genopode Building, 1015 Lausanne, Switzerland
