Normally exists as a multinucleate plasmodium that may be much centimetres across, but if starved and stimulated by easy will manufacture spores that later germinate to manufacture amoeboid cells, myxamoebae, which may transform into flagellated swarm cells. Either of these cell types may fuse to manufacture a zygote that forms the plasmodium by synchronous nuclear division. Easily grown in the laboratory and many used for research on cytoplasmic streaming and on the cell cycle because they show synchronous DNA synthesis and nuclear division).
