Cyclic AMP is an inhibitor of stalk cell differentiation in Dictyostelium discoideum.


Cyclic AMP and DIF-1 (1-(3,5-dichloro-2,6-dihydroxy-4-methoxyphenyl)-1-hexanone) together induce stalk cell differentiation in vitro in Dictyostelium discoideum strain V12M2. The induction can proceed in two stages: in the first, cyclic AMP brings cells to a DIF-responsive state; in the second, DIF-1 alone can induce stalk cell formation. We report here… (More)
