Copine A is expressed in prestalk cells and regulates slug phototaxis and thermotaxis in developing Dictyostelium.


Copines are calcium-dependent membrane-binding proteins found in many eukaryotic organisms. We are studying the function of copines using the model organism, Dictyostelium discoideum. When under starvation conditions, Dictyostelium cells aggregate into mounds that become migrating slugs, which can move toward light and heat before culminating into a… (More)
