Immunity in social amoeba suggests ancient beginnings
... is that a requirement of multicellularity is that you
develop systems to recognize pathogens and other non-self cells from yourself. Kuspa sees two paths for future research in the area. One is to look for evidence of the same immune mechanism and protein in other kinds of amoeba. The other is to loo...
