    ..We found a severe reduction of cAMP-induced Ca2+-influx into whole cells. The contractile vacuoles in Dictyostelium represent a highly efficient acidic Ca2+-store that is required for cAMP-induced Ca2+-influx. ..

    ..Furthermore, our results show that under conditions of increased mechanical stress, Dictyostelium cells, like leukocytes, switch to a bleb-based mode of movement. ..

    ..Our data indicate that FLNa is not essential for the regulation of mechanical properties during migration, but contributes to motility in a modulatory manner probably through its action at the uropod. ..
