All three forms of discoidin I, an endogenous N-acetylgalactosamine-binding lectin from D. discoideum, contain the amino acid sequence gly-arg-gly-asp also found in fibronectin and implicated in its attachment to cells. Synthetic peptides containing these and adjacent amino acids of discoidin I block organized streaming during aggregation of D. discoideum(More)
Partially differentiated cells of two species of cellular slime molds, Dictyostelium discoideum and Dictyostelium purpureum, were labeled with isothiocyanate derivatives of fluorescent dyes. The labeled cells of each species segregated promptly when mixed and placed on moist filters. We determined whether cells studied at a time when they demonstrated this(More)
Identification of cell surface molecules that play a role in cell-cell adhesion (here called cell adhesion molecules) has been achieved by demonstrating the inhibitory effect of univalent antibodies that bind these molecules in an in vitro assay of cell-cell adhesion. A more convenient reagent, intact (divalent) antibody, has been avoided because it might(More)
