It is infrequent in biology that two seemingly disparate areas of research are fused by a few key experiments. Such was the case in 1988 when it was reported that the function of the maturation-promoting factor (MPF) which regulates meiosis in amphibian oocytes depended on a key cell-cycle-regulated protein kinase that previously had been identified using the genetics of yeast. Indeed, it was soon recognized that the protein kinase was a component of MPF and that another essential component was a cyclin protein, again through the efforts of investigators studying early development in amphibian and marine invertebrate embryos, on the one hand, and yeast geneticists studying cell growth regulation, on the other.
