Niccoli T, Yamashita A, Nurse P, Yamamoto M. The p150-Glued Ssm4p regulates microtubular dynamics and nuclear movement in fission yeast. J Cell Sci. 2004;117:5543-56 pubmed
..We also show that Ssm4p collaborates with Tip1p in establishing the shmooing microtubular array. ..

..Thus, Dli1p and Dic1p contribute differently in localizing the dynein-dynactin motor complex to organelles, providing novel insight into the in vivo function of dynein subunits in fission yeast. ..

. Microtubule-organizing center formation at telomeres induces meiotic telomere clustering. J Cell Biol. 2013;200:385-95 pubmed publisher
..We propose that telomere-localized SUN and KASH induce telocentrosome formation and that subsequent microtubule motor-dependent aggregation of telocentrosomes via the telocentrosome-nucleated microtubules causes telomere clustering. ..
Fujita I, Yamashita A, Yamamoto M. Dynactin and Num1 cooperate to establish the cortical anchoring of cytoplasmic dynein in S. pombe. J Cell Sci. 2015;128:1555-67 pubmed publisher
..From these data, we propose that dynein anchoring is established by cooperation of transient assembly of dynactin and function of Num1 at the cell cortex. ..

..Analysis of one of the suppressors, named ssm4, suggested that it encodes a coiled-coil protein carrying a microtubule-binding motif at its N-terminus...
Yamashita A, Fujita Y, Yamamoto M. Proper microtubule structure is vital for timely progression through meiosis in fission yeast. PLoS ONE. 2013;8:e65082 pubmed publisher
..Our results indicate that proper microtubule structure is required for ordered progression through the meiotic cycle. Furthermore, the results of our study suggest that fission yeast do not monitor ploidy during meiosis. ..
