The subsequent stress signal to a nutrient deficiency induces a multicellular differentiation and development program in the social amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum which results in the formation of fruiting composed of a rod supporting spores. The results obtained by researchers at our institute are the first demonstration of a necrotic death in a protist.
