A G3 phase separating nuclear and cell division was therefore proposed for this organism Zachleder et al. Whereas only single growth and the DNA replication—division sequence occurs during the cell cycle of cells dividing binary fission A, Btwo partially overlapping growth and DNA replication—division sequences occur within a single cycle in cells dividing into four daughter cells C and three partially overlapping growth and DNA replication—division sequences occur within a single cycle in cells dividing into eight daughter cells D.

Correspondence to Benedikt Westermann: ed. Traditionally, cell-cycle regulation has been studied in different model organisms from the genera Chlorella, Chlamydomonas, and Scenedesmus, all of which divide by a complex mechanism called multiple fission.

The accumulation of cytosolic protein aggregates in mother cells is another hallmark of aging yeast cells Erjavec et al. Classical cell-cycle model after Howard and Pelc ; Scenedesmus cell-cycle model after Zachleder et al. Cells put into the dark after passing the second CP will divide into four cells, implying that the second CP is switching on another DNA replication—division sequence that will again duplicate all the reproductive structures DNA, nuclei, and cells. Only recently, a novel model organism was added to this portfolio, the microalga O. The CP exists not only in S. Also, the replicative lifespan and retention of protein aggregates in the mother cell depend on the activity of the mitochondrial transport machinery. The formation of increasing numbers of daughter cells can be modelled by the increasing number of DNA replication—division sequences occurring within one cell cycle: in order to fit into one cell cycle, the individual sequences more or less overlap, depending on their number. Cell division does not happen until the very end of the cell cycle, when the last nuclear division is finished. Early experiments suggested, that when immediately put into the dark after passing through the CP, the cells are able to divide without any external energy supply while cells put into dark just prior to the CP are unable to do so. Third, protein aggregates were proposed to initially bind to the surface of the ER and then be transferred to mitochondria, thereby constraining their mobility and retaining them in the mother cell Zhou et al.

Yeast cells reproduce through budding or binary fission which are both methods of asexual reproduction Horst, Here, the parent cell produces an outgrowth that finally splits to become an independent identical cell as the parent cell.

Similarly to S. First, it controls the mitochondrial quantity apportioned to the growing bud Rafelski et al.

In many green algae, the mother cell gives rise to more than two daughter cells, thus they divide by multiple fission. A genetic screen revealed an unexpected interaction of MYO2 and genes required for mitochondrial fusion. As a key decision point in the cell cycle, it is the equivalent of START in budding yeast and restriction point in mammals John, This process is called replicative aging Longo et al. When new-born daughter cells are illuminated, they enter the G1 growth phase. Their body organization could be very simple, as in unicellular algae like Chlamydomonas reinhardtii or Ostreococcus tauri, or quite complex multicellular forms with defined tissues, as in the closest higher plant relatives, Charales. The light-growth phase of the cell cycle is macroscopically evident as a stepwise increase in cell volume with the CP being attained roughly at each doubling. The cells increase their volume two-fold for the third time, reaching roughly an eight-fold increase compared to the daughter cells; this leads, yet again, to attainment of a third CP and to DNA duplication, mitosis, and cell division. Whereas only single growth and the DNA replication—division sequence occurs during the cell cycle of cells dividing by binary fission A, B , two partially overlapping growth and DNA replication—division sequences occur within a single cycle in cells dividing into four daughter cells C and three partially overlapping growth and DNA replication—division sequences occur within a single cycle in cells dividing into eight daughter cells D. During this phase, the cells increase their volume until they roughly double the volume of the daughter cell coenobia.

G3, the phase between nuclear division and cell division; the processes leading to cellular division are assumed to take place during this phase.
