A set of developmental mutants have been examined that behave as if defective in cellular interactions necessary for the formation of myxospores during fruiting body development. Sporulation is rescued in these mutants if they are mixed with wild-type cells. Complementation experiments with whole cells divide the mutants into four groups (A, B, C, and D). Mutants of group A appear to be less responsive to starvation, a condition that normally initiates development. Mutants of group D respond to… CONTINUE READING
