It has been a banner year for the study of yeast myosins. Thanks to the completion of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome project, it is now known that budding yeast contains a total of five myosins. Furthermore, functions have been newly ascribed to several of them: two have been implicated in endocytosis, and another has been implicated in generating asymmetry between mother and daughter cells.
