septin

Family of homologous proteins (around 40 kD) first identified in Saccharomyces cerevisiae where they associated with cytokinesis and septum formation. Encoded by CDC3, CDC10, CDC11 and CDC12 genes in S. cerevisiae : seem to form 10nm filaments that form a ring around the plasma membrane in the mother-bud neck. Homologous proteins, associated with cleavage furrows, are reported from Drosophila , amphibians and mammals. ...

Septin

Septins are a group of GTP-binding proteins found primarily in eukaryotic cells of fungi and animals, but also in some green algae. Different septins form protein complexes with each other. These complexes can further assemble into filaments, rings and gauzes. Assembled as such, septins function in cells by localizing other proteins, either by pro...
