    A high molecular weight actin-binding protein was isolated from the Physarum polycephalum plasmodia. The protein (HMWP) shares many properties with other high molecular weight actin-binding proteins such as spectrin, actin-binding protein from macrophages, and filamin. It has a potent activity to cross-link F-actin into a gel-like structure. The slime mould Physarum polycephalum has been the centre of attention for a number of years as it has been suggested that the organism can be used to compute various complex ta The organism follows fairly basic behavioural patterns, growing towards food and away from light

    Reproduction of Physarum polycephalum. Slime molds are isogamous organisms, which means their sex cells are all the same size. There are over species of slime molds that exist today. Physarum polycephalum is one species that has three sex genes – matA, matB, and matC. The first two types have thirteen separate variations. Gene finding is complicated in organisms that exhibit insertional RNA editing. Here, we demonstrate how our new algorithm Predictor of Insertional Editing (PIE) can be used to locate genes whose mRNAs are subjected to multiple frameshifting events, and extend the algorithm to include probabilistic p .

One landmark in the long history of biological studies on the "slime mold" Physarum polycephalum was the introduction of chemi­ cally defined growth conditions for the plasmodial phase of this organism The Molecular Biology of Physarum polycephalum book the laboratory of Harold P.

Rusch in Wisconsin in the s. The concluding chapters examine the preparation, isolation, and characterization of ribonucleic acid, histone, plasmodial polysaccharides, myosin, actins, and fragmin.

The book will serve as a frequent, single reference source to brief cell biologists on the primary research on Physarum and Didymium. Physarum polycephalum, because of its unique life cycle, is a useful organism in which to address a wide variety of questions of biological interest.

These include problems relating to motility, differentiation, cell cycle regulation, and ultrastructural organization of the mitotic apparatus. As reviewed in other chapters of this volume, much progress has already been made on several fronts in these and other.

This book is organized into four parts, encompassing 12 chapters that summarize the taxonomy, biological activities, genetics, and cell cycle of these organisms. The opening part covers two chapters on morphology, taxonomy, phylogeny, biosystematics, and evolutionary implications of Physarum and Didymium species.

Biology of Physarum polycephalum. Physarum polycephalum represents an enigmatic group of organisms known as the slime molds. Despite their name these organisms are not related with fungi, and form a genuine branch in the tree of life, beside plants, animals, and fungi. The uniqueness of slime molds is also shown by their biological life style and growth.

Physarum polycephalum, an acellular slime mold or myxomycete, is a protist with diverse cellular forms and broad geographic distribution. The “acellular” moniker derives from the plasmodial stage of the life cycle: the plasmodium is a bright yellow macroscopic multinucleate coenocyte shaped in a network of interlaced tubes.

This stage of the life cycle, along with its preference for damp. Tectonin II cDNAs were identified by immunoscreening the λgt11 expression library carrying P. polycephalum microplasmodial cDNAs, using antibodies raised against tectonin II that had been purified from P. polycephalum.

Simple organisms like Physarum polycephalum realize complex behavior, such as shortest path optimization or habituation, via mechanochemical processes rather than by a network of neurons. A full understanding of these phenomena requires detailed investigation.

Physarum, or more precisely Physarum polycephalum, is an acellular slime mold, or myxogastrid. Myxogastrids are closely related to the cellular slime molds, or dictyostelids, including the well known Dictyostelium discoideum.

Physarum is more distantly related. Regarding these developments in molecular and cell biology, it is understandable that research on P. polycephalum took a back seat for a while. Despite the lack of a nervous system or even neuronal network-like information processing structures, P.
