Sensitive cell viability assay for use in drug screens and for studying the mechanism of action of drugs in Dictyostelium discoideum.


In order to increase the effectiveness of Dictyostelium discoideum as a lead genetic model for drug discovery, a luminescence-based assay has been adapted and standardized for sensitive and rapid cell viability measurements. The applicability of the assay was demonstrated by measuring the cytotoxicity of several drugs in wild-type and mutant cells. The… (More)
