The septin cortex at the yeast mother-bud neck

Curr Opin Microbiol. 2001 Dec;4(6):681-9. doi: 10.1016/s1369-5274(01)00269-7.

Abstract

A specialized cortical domain is organized by the septins at the necks of budding yeast cells. Recent findings suggest that this domain serves as a diffusion barrier and also as a local cell-shape sensor. We review these findings along with what is known about the organization of the septin cortex and its regulation during the cell cycle.
