    • Cytokinesis proteins Tum and Pav have a nuclear role in Wnt regulation. 

      Bejsovec, Amy; Chao, AT; Jones, WM; Saint, R; Zavortink, M (J Cell Sci, 2010-07-01)
      Wg/Wnt signals specify cell fates in both invertebrate and vertebrate embryos and maintain stem-cell populations in many adult tissues. Deregulation of the Wnt pathway can transform cells to a proliferative fate, leading ...
    • FtsZ in bacterial cytokinesis: cytoskeleton and force generator all in one. 

      Anderson, David E; Erickson, Harold Paul; Osawa, Masaki (Microbiology and molecular biology reviews : MMBR, 2010-12)
      FtsZ, a bacterial homolog of tubulin, is well established as forming the cytoskeletal framework for the cytokinetic ring. Recent work has shown that purified FtsZ, in the absence of any other division proteins, can assemble ...
    • Liposome division by a simple bacterial division machinery. 

      Erickson, Harold Paul; Osawa, Masaki (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2013-07)
      We previously reconstituted Z rings in tubular multilamellar liposomes with FtsZ-YFP-mts, where mts is a membrane-targeting amphiphilic helix. These reconstituted Z rings generated a constriction force but did not divide ...
