Abstract

In Aspergillus nidulans, the temperature-sensitive, recessive cell cycle mutation bimG11 causes an elevated mitotic index at restrictive temperature and an inability to complete the anaphase separation of daughter nuclei. We have shown that this mutation has an abnormally high content of nuclear phosphoproteins and that the wild-type gene encodes a type 1 protein phosphatase. We conclude that dephosphorylation of a key protein(s) is required to complete mitosis.
