Discoidin I is implicated in cell-substratum attachment and ordered cell migration of Dictyostelium discoideum and resembles fibronectin.

Abstract

All three forms of discoidin I, an endogenous N-acetylgalactosamine-binding lectin from D. discoideum, contain the amino acid sequence gly-arg-gly-asp also found in fibronectin and implicated in its attachment to cells. Synthetic peptides containing these and adjacent amino acids of discoidin I block organized streaming during aggregation of D. discoideum… (More)
