  • 2005 (First Publication: 1 July 2005)
  • ABSTRACT The ciliate Euplotes raikovi produces a family of diffusible signal proteins (pheromones) that function as prototypic growth factors. They may either promote cell growth, by binding toExpand

  • 2010 (First Publication: 1 April 2010)
  • In the free-living ciliate Euplotes raikovi, we identified (and designated as Er-MAPK1) a protein kinase of 631 amino acids, that appears to be constantly phosphorylated in cells which are in growthExpand

  • 2000 (First Publication: 1 April 2000)
  • Homologous proteins, denoted pheromones, promote cell mitotic proliferation and mating pair formation in the ciliate Euplotes raikovi, according to whether they bind to cells in an autocrine- orExpand

  • 2003 (First Publication: 15 April 2003)
  • Cell type-specific protein signals, called pheromones, are constitutively secreted by Euplotes raikovi and bound back in autocrine fashion, with a positive effect on the vegetative (mitotic) cellExpand
