Comparative biology of cell division in the fission yeast clade.
London, United Kingdom. In Curr Opin Microbiol, Dec 2015
Recent work on another member of the same genus, Schisozaccharomyces japonicus, suggests that S. pombe may have evolved an unusual division site placement mechanism based on a recently duplicated anillin paralog.
Anillin: a pivotal organizer of the cytokinetic machinery.

Accordingly, many proteins, including the putative scaffold protein anillin, localize to the cleavage furrow and are required for cytokinesis, but how they function together is poorly understood.
