Abstract

Summary: When subjected to dehydration, plasmodia differentiate into sclerotia which can be maintained for long periods and exhibit no discernible O uptake. While actively growing plasmodia display the phenomenon of senescence, this ageing is delayed in sclerotia by the duration of the sclerotized state. Upon rehydration, plasmodia live the remainder of their characteristic life spans. Hence, the timing mechanism for senescence is conserved during this reversible differentiation pathway.
