Medium from a stationary phase culture of axenically grown D. discoideum cells contains an inhibitor of cohesion of log phase cells. The inhibitor is a heat-stable, low molecular weight substance. Its biological effects include inhibition of cohesion of aggregation-competent cells, of cells of other slime mould species, the blocking of development on Millipore filters and a reduction in adhesiveness of slime mould cells to glass. Present evidence suggests that the inhibitor may bind to the cell surface.
