Regulation and processing of a secreted protein that mediates sensing of cell density in Dictyostelium.


During Dictyostelium development, the expression of some genes is dependent on cell density. This effect is mediated by soluble factors referred to as conditioned medium factors (CMFs) which the developing cells secrete at very low rates and simultaneously sense. There are at least two classes of CMFs: one is an 80 x 10(3) Mr glycoprotein and the other is a… (More)
