O'Day and Jiji Rivera Department of Zoology and Erindale College. Dictyostelium discoideum (D. discoideum) is a simple eukaryote with a unique life cycle in which it differentiates from unicellular amoebae into a fruiting body upon starvation.

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) have been associated with bacterial predation, as well as regulatory events during D. discoideum development and differentiation. The development changes in GTP-binding proteins and the regulation of their appearance by calcium ions were investigated during early sexual development in Dictyostelium discoideum.

On starvation, the cellular slime mold Dictyostelium discoideum initiates a program of development leading to formation of multicellular structures. The initial cell aggregation requires chemotaxis to cyclic AMP (cAMP) and relay of the cAMP signal by the activation of adenylyl cyclase (ACA), and it has been shown previously that the Ras protein.

Chemotaxis and early development. Dictyostelium cells exhibit chemotaxis in a variety of circumstances, such as feeding on bacteria during growth phase and formation of the macrocyst during its sexual cycle.

The most extensively studied process is during aggregation, where cells move towards a pulsatile cAMP signal. PAT1 expression and examined the role of PAT1 and the contractile vacuole in Ca2+ regulation.

During both growth and development, Dictyostelium cells respond to low millimolar concentrations of extracellular Ca2+and upregulate PAT1 in a few hours. This process is dependent on protein synthesis and the serine/threonine phosphatase, calcineurin. Dictyostelium discoideum is an amoeba found in soil where it feeds on bacteria.

In order to survive periods of starvation, 10 4 –10 5 amoebae aggregate and execute a h developmental program that yields a fruiting body comprised of a round mass of spores held aloft by a slender stalk (Figure 1(a)).When nutrients return to the environment, spores germinate to yield.

Cytokinins (CKs) are a family of evolutionarily conserved growth regulating hormones. While CKs are well-characterized in plant systems, these N6-substituted adenine derivatives are found in a variety of organisms beyond plants, including bacteria, fungi, mammals, and the social amoeba, Dictyostelium discoideum.

Within Dictyostelium, CKs have only been studied in the late. It is therefore conceivable that one or more formins, irrespective of their expression pattern, play roles during sexual development upon activation by those GTPases. Conclusion The social amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum expresses 10 formins that with few exceptions conform to the domain structure GBD/FH3-FH1-FH2-DAD.

The developmental changes in GTP-binding proteins and the regulation of their appearance by calcium ions were investigated during early sexual development in Dictyostelium discoideum. GTPγS strongly inhibited gamete cell fusion, while GDPβS slightly augmented it, suggesting that G-proteins have a critical role in cell fusion.

Background. Dictyostelium discoideum, a microbial model for social evolution, is known to distinguish self from non-self and show genotype-dependent behavior during chimeric from a small number of cell-cell recognition genes, however, little is known about the genetic basis of self/non-self recognition in this species.

Macrocyst Formation is a Sexual Process in Cellular Slime Molds. Macrocyst formation was first reported by Brefeld in 9 Its process was regarded as the sexual process in cellular slime molds.

In fact, there are three kinds of mating types in the macrocyst formation; heterothallic, homothallic and bi-sexual mating types. 10, 11 In Dictyostelium discoideum (Dd), the wild.

The h life cycle of Dictyostelium nutrient-rich conditions, Dictyostelium grow as single cells and feed on readily available nutrients and bacteria. Removal of the food source initiates multicellular development.

During the initial stages of development, cells chemotactically aggregate towards 3′,5′-cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) to form. Sexual development in Dictyostelium discoideum has many unique features making it an attractive eukaryotic model system for the study of biomembrane fusion and intercellular communication.

The work presented here provides primary biochemical evidence for two distinct phases during early sexual development that appear to be defined by calcium. The membrane glycoprotein gp is encoded by the lagC gene and mediates cell-cell adhesion by heterophilic binding during Dictyostelium development.

We expressed Dictyostelium lamin (NE81) lacking both a functional nuclear localization signal and a CAAX-box for C-terminal lipid modification.

This lamin mutant assembled into supramolecular, three-dimensional clusters in the cytosol that disassembled at the onset of mitosis and re-assembled in late telophase, thus mimicking the behavior of the endogenous.

The plasma membrane proteins of Dictyostelium discoideum are among the most thoroughly studied, and thus this organism serves as an important model for changes in the plasma membrane during eukaryotic development.

Unlike metazoans that develop from a mass of cells generated from a fertilized egg, Dictyostelium has to bring dispersed single cells together before initiating multicellular development. A highly sophisticated network has evolved in Dictyostelium to result in intercellular signalling by pulses of cAMP coupled to a chemotactic.
