Gradient sensing: Engineering yeast love affair

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new study in fission yeasts promotes the notion that transient polarity patches that wander the cell surface at the onset of mating are discrete agents of gradient sensing. This concept unexpectedly bridges the modes of gradient sensing in eukaryotes and prokaryotes.
