Development of spatio-temporal pattern of Ca2+ on the chemotactic behaviour ofPhysarum plasmodium

Abstract

The development of a spatio-temporal pattern of Ca2+ concentration by a plasmodium ofPhysarum polycephalum during chemotaxis was studied using fura-2. Whenever the cell displayed coordinated migration in one direction as a whole body, a spatiotemporal pattern was established with a characteristic feature along the longitudinal axis. Calcium concentration… (More)
