The cell cycle during the vegetative stage of Dictyostelium discoideum and its response to temperature change.


The cell cycle in amoebae of Dictyostelium discoideum has been analysed in cells growing asynchronously in axenic medium. For cells growing at the optimum growth temperature of 22 degrees C with a culture doubling time of 8 h the average times for the cell cycle phases are as follows: G1, 1.5 h; S, 2.1 h; G2, 4.4 h; M, 15.2 min. When amoebae are grown at… (More)
