This manuscript by Armin Haupt, establishes that there are gradients of membrane charges linked to the distribution of the lipid phosphatidylserine, which contribute to cell polarity in yeast cells.
New paper accepted in Nature in collaboration with the Bellaiche lab! This publication explains how epithelial tissue cells control the orientation of their site of cell division.
New Paper accepted in J Cell Biology; congrats to Hiro! In this work we study the motion of the sperm nucleus to the center of an egg at fertilization
New Paper accepted in Current Biology, Congrats to Daria and Armin!! This publication demonstrates that the size of functional polarity domains may adapt to the local shape of the cell surface.
New paper accepted in Plos Biology: Congrats to Armin, Alexis and Daria! In this manuscript we study how yeast cells orient polarity in response to external electric fields
