Morphogenetically synchronized Dictyostelium discoideum amoeba were sampled at intervals during development to determine the fates of major cell constituents. Dry weight, total protein and fractions thereof, RNA, free and bound hexoses were followed. None of these except the last appeared to reflect the specific morphogenetic events. Two polysaccharide fractions were encountered which did reflect these events and their syntheses were repressed or disturbed in morphogenetically deficient mutants.
