Abstract

Quantitative studies are reported on macrocyst formation, the sexual cycle in , under conditions in which asexual fruiting body formation is prevented. Light inhibited amoebae of both mating types from participating in macrocyst formation, and amoebae of the mating type responded better to a mating stimulus than amoebae of the mating type. These results are interpreted in terms of a possible two-way induction system leading to macrocyst formation in .
