Stimulation of Dictyostelium cells with a high uniform concentration of the chemoattractant cyclic-AMP induces a series of morphological changes, including cell rounding and subsequent extension of pseudopodia in random directions. Here we report that cyclic-AMP also elicits blebs and analyse their mechanism of formation. The surface area and volume of cells remain constant during blebbing indicating that blebs form by the redistribution of cytoplasm and plasma membrane rather than the… CONTINUE READING
