Abstract

Summary: Analysis of the wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) binding proteins in the cellular slime moulds and revealed many cell-type specific proteins in each species examined. Furthermore, three species and , were found to have a wst34-like protein in their stalk cells. Wst34, which was originally identified in , is a stalk-specific WGA-binding protein having a molecular mass of 34 kDa and pI values of between 5·5 and 6·5.
