Cell division: SIN, cytokinesis and ethanol dependency
A novel mutant screen in fission yeast has identified the 'ethanol dependent' protein etd1p as a potential link between the septation initiation network (SIN), which initiates cytokinesis, and the actomyosin contractile ring that drives separation of the two daughter cells at the end of mitosis.
