About this site

The social amoebae, cellular slime molds, are nonpathogenic eukaryotic microorganisms and known for their unique life cycles shuttling between unicellular and multicellular stages. Since the amoebae are easily amenable to molecular biological manipulations, they serve as useful model organisms for both basic and applied sciences. As NBRP Resource Center, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Tsukuba, takes care of the biological resources of the social amoebae in Japan, and distribute them upon request from domestic and oversea users.


Distribution   Deposit
We send Dictyostelium discoideum genes and strains upon your request.   Please deposit new strains/DNA you developed. We also accept deposit of strains/DNA that you have difficulties of maintaining.
Strain   Gene
Cellular slime mold strains are being collected mainly from Japanese laboratories.   Cellular slime molds vectors and plasmids are available. In addition, Dictyostelium discoideum cDNA clones covering the entire coding sequences are being collected.
