Gene of InterestCDAC (cell division arrest C) Originally published as mo3e

PublicationsFrankel J, Jenkins LM, Doerder FP, Nelsen EM. 1976. Mutations affecting cell division in tetrahymena pyriformis. I. selection and genetic analysis. Genetics 83(3):489-506.
CommentsFailure to complete cytokinesis accompanied by cell elongation (high & low temperatures). Allelic to cdaC-1 (IA-119) and cdaC-2 (IA-123). High and low-temperature sensitive: Generates 100% fission blockage at 39o C and at 15o C. This and cdaC-1 are the only two of the five known mutant alleles of cdaC in which completion of cytokinesis is cold- as well as heat-sensitive.
