Cell Polarity: Spot-on Cdc42 Polarization Achieved on Demand

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new study deploys optogenetics to induce the yeast bud on demand, at a site determined by a laser spot. The authors definitively prove that the initiation of cell polarization is generated by the Bem1-mediated positive feedback loop and reveal novel features of its regulation by the cell cycle.
