Abstract (English)

The accellular slime mold Physarum polycephalum is characterized by two distinctive growth phases: uninucleate amoebae and multinucleate syncytial plasmodia. These two cell types differ in cellular organization, behaviour and gene expression. Plasmodium distinguishes from other stages of the life cycle by the production of an unusual polyester, ß-poly(L-malate) (PMLA). The polymer is concentrated ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Physarum polycephalum gehört zu den echten Schleimpilzen und weist zwei Lebensformen auf: die vielkernigen Plasmodien, sowie die einkernige haploide Amöbe. Plasmodium ist unter anderem durch die Produktion vom ß-Poly(L-Malat) (PMLA) charakterisiert. PMLA tritt in großer Menge im Kern auf und fungiert möglicherweise als Speicherplatz bzw. als Transportsystem für nukleare Proteine. Über die Gene, ...
