Re: Behaviour of Amoebozoans

... new broad-range perspectives on the evolution and biosynthetic capacity of this assemblage. Together with genome sequences for the amoebozoans Dictyostelium discoideum and Entamoeba histolytica, and including partial genome sequence available for A. castellanii, we used the EST data to identify ...

The Fiber Disease

... to that mentioned in one of the articles, but are not quorum sensing. It's true you see cellular slime molds in genetic research, particularly Dictyostelium, since it's got a nice short genome, and a rapid life cycle. The flybase.org link is about a similar thing, drosophila (fruit fly), which ...

... conserved features found in all cellulose synthases, including plants, but was most similar to cellulose synthases from bacteria, fungi, and Dictyostelium discoidium. However, unlike other known cellulose synthases, the predicted C. savignyi polypeptide has a degenerate cellulase-like region ...
