SDF-1 and SDF-2 are peptides that promote terminal spore differentiation under submerged conditions. The present study shows that they accumulate differentially and are released during the development of wild-type cells and can promote spore formation in cells disaggregated from wild-type culminants. SDF-1 accumulates during the slug stage and is released in a single burst at the onset of culmination while SDF-2 accumulates during early culmination and is released in a single burst from mid… CONTINUE READING
