11, lower part). Conversely, if this master gene is released from the normal control, mitosis or S phase takes place prematurely in fission yeast or budding yeast, respectively. Most cdc mutants of fission yeast exhibit an altered cell length at a restrictive temperature. The majority of the cdc mutants are recessive, temperature sensitive and blocked at the G2–M transition before entry into mitosis at the restrictive temperature. Using this forward genetics approach, scientists discovered a cast of important players in cell cycle control, including Cdc2/Cdc28 and Wee1 protein kinases, as well as Cdc25 tyrosine phosphatase [38, 42].

A milestone case for a proof of principle is the substitution of a fission yeast cell-division cycle (cdc) gene, cdc2, coding for a master protein kinase in cell cycle regulation, by a human orthologous gene, CDC2 in a cross-species complementary assay [23]. ) In fact, many methods now used for complex organisms were first developed and optimized in the yeast model organisms. Studying human protein homologs in yeasts allows researchers to extrapolate information about human proteins and gain insight into genetic networks that are more difficult to uncover in humans (reviewed in [24]).

To circumvent this problem, conditional mutants are developed for identifying the genes involved in the cell cycle. Conditional mutants are the cells in which a gene product is inactive under one condition but not another. The most common conditional mutants used in cell cycle studies are temperature-sensitive, cell-division cycle (cdc) mutants. In a ts mutant the gene product can function at a lower temperature, the permissive temperature, but not at a higher, restrictive (or non-permissive) temperature.
