... in animals, control sporulation, while cytokinins, which act as hormones in plants, keep spores dormant. When SDF-2 binds its receptor DhkA, it reduces the activity of the cAMP phosphodiesterase RegA such that cAMP levels can increase. It has been proposed that the cytokinin discadenine also produces...

...Elisa Alvarez-Curto; Shweta Saran; Marcel Meima; Jenny Zobel; Claire Scott; Pauline Schaap Encystation and sporulation are crucial developmental transitions for solitary and social amoebae, respectively. Whereas little is known of encystation, sporulation requires both extra- and intracellular cAMP...

... in Dictyostelium and is also able to inhibit induction of sporulation by SDF-2. The signal transduction pathway from SDF-2 is independent of the GABA/glutamate signal transduction pathway,but the two appear to converge to control release of AcbA and exposure of TagC protease. These results indicate that GABA...

... and the posterior prespore region suggesting that they had sorted out normally. Although normal fruiting bodies were subsequently formed, the mutant cells failed to give rise to viable spores further confirming the cell autonomous nature of the acrA − defect in sporulation. Expression of a modified form...

... of the human, Drosophila and yeast homologs. srfA is a developmentally regulated gene expressed in prespore and spore cells. This gene plays an essential role in sporulation as its disruption leads to abnormal spore morphology and loss of viability. The mutant spores were round and cellulose deposition seemed...

The sequence of RegA predicts that it will function as a member of a two-component system. Genetic analyses indicate that inhibition of the phosphodiesterase results in an increase...
