Abstract

SUMMARY

In darkness the unitary, elongated aggregates, or grex, of are strongly attracted through air to earlier stages of development, including pre-aggregation and feeding cells. Hence the factor responsible cannot be acrasin. This attraction is dominant over mutual grex repulsion. The significance of the response is obscure. cells also attract grex, but do not appear to attract culminating grex.
