Development of iplA- cells is impaired by depletion of internal Ca2+-stores due to EGTA-treatment. Differentiation of the wild type and the mutant on plates containing 20 mM EGTA is shown. Aggregation was delayed in both strains till t15 and t18 in wild type and iplA- cells, respectively. The size of the aggregates and the fruiting bodies were much smaller than under control conditions. The full width of the image corresponds to 12.5 mm.
