Yeast tubulin genes

Microbiol Sci. 1987 Apr;4(4):115-8.


There are two alpha-tubulin genes and one beta-tubulin gene in Schizosaccharomyces pombe and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Detailed analyses employing tubulin mutants and cloned genes have revealed different cellular roles for the tubulin genes in these organisms.
