Abstract

Dormant spores of the cellular slime mold Dictyostelium purpureum contain virtually no polyribosomes. During germination of heat-activated spores, polyribosome formation follows initial spore swelling and precedes emergence of the amebae. Cycloheximide and puromycin strongly suppress the appearance of polyribosomes during germination. © 1971.
