Cell-cycle dependent transformation competence in Dictyostelium discoideum.

PMID:  3395345     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We describe a modification of the transformation procedure for Dictyostelium which allows for a more exact estimate of transformation efficiency and the isolation of primary transformants. Investigations of transformation competence revealed a negative correlation to cell density and a distinct distribution during the cell-cycle. In synchronized cells, transformation efficiency is 2-3 fold higher during mitosis when compared to unsynchronized cells.
