Villahermosa D, Christensen O, Knapp K, Fleck O. Schizosaccharomyces pombe MutS? and MutL? Maintain Stability of Tetra-Nucleotide Repeats and Msh3 of Hepta-Nucleotide Repeats. G3 (Bethesda). 2017;7:1463-1473 pubmed publisher
..We conclude that Msh3 has no obvious function in MMR in S. pombe, but contributes to DNA repeat stability in MMR-independent processes. ..

. Deoxynucleoside Salvage in Fission Yeast Allows Rescue of Ribonucleotide Reductase Deficiency but Not Spd1-Mediated Inhibition of Replication. Genes (Basel). 2017;8: pubmed publisher
..We propose that this inhibition works at the point of the replication clamp proliferating cell nuclear antigen, a co-factor for DNA replication. ..
