We generated by gene disruption Dictyostelium cells that lacked both the F-actin cross-linking proteins, alpha-actinin and gelation factor. Several major cell functions, such as growth, chemotaxis, phagocytosis, and pinocytosis, were apparently unaltered. However, in all double mutants, development was greatly impaired. After formation of aggregates, cells were very rarely able to form fruiting bodies. This ability was rescued when mutant and wild-type strains were mixed in a ratio of 70 to 30… Expand
