Abstract

The fission yeast cdc2 gene is pleiotropic, functioning both in the cell division cycle and in meiosis. Here we show that cdc2 is allelic to tws1, a previously isolated meiotic gene. Dissociation of meiotic and mitotic roles of the gene is also demonstrated by finding mutant alleles specifically altered in only one of the two processes.
