The effect of cyclic AMP on morphogenesis and enzyme accumulation in Dictyostelium discoideum

Marion Nestle, Maurice Sussman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

When 3′,5′-cyclic AMP is applied externally to migrating slugs and to cell aggregates during particular stages of morphogenesis, it disturbs the normal polarity and dominance relationships among the cells in a specific manner. It also interferes with the developmental programs of at least two enzymes that are needed for fruit construction.
