Involvements of a novel protein, DIA2, in cAMP signaling and spore differentiation during Dictyostelium development
The novel gene dia2 (differentiation-associated gene 2) was originally isolated as a gene expressed specifically in response to initial differentiation of Dictyostelium discoideum Ax-2 cells.

A fast Ca(2+)-induced Ca(2+)-release mechanism in Dictyostelium discoideum
In vertebrate cells calcium-induced calcium release (CICR) is thought to be responsible for rapid cytosolic Ca(2+) elevations despite the occurrence of strong Ca(2+) buffering within the cytosol.
