First Report of the Pale Cyst Nematode, Globodera pallida, in the United States.
In 2006, a cyst nematode was discovered in tare dirt at a potato (Solanum tuberosum) processing facility in eastern Idaho. The nematode was found during a routine survey conducted jointly by theExpand
Developing a Real-Time PCR Assay for Detection and Quantification of Pratylenchus neglectus in Soil.
Pratylenchus neglectus is one of the most widespread and economically important nematodes that invades plant roots and restricts wheat productivity in the Pacific Northwest. It is challenging toExpand
Morphological and Molecular Identification of Globodera pallida Associated with Potato in Idaho.
The identity of a newly discovered population of pale potato cyst nematode Globodera pallida associated with potato in eastern Idaho was established by morphological and molecular methods.Expand
Morphological, Molecular, and Differential-Host Characterization of Meloidogyne floridensis n. sp. (Nematoda: Meloidogynidae), a Root-Knot Nematode Parasitizing Peach in Florida.
A root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne floridensis n. sp., is described and illustrated from peach originally collected from Gainesville, Florida. This new species resembles M. incognita, M. christiei, M.Expand
Root-Knot Nematodes in Golf Course Greens of the Western United States.
A survey of 238 golf courses in 10 states of the western United States found root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) in 60% of the putting greens sampled. Sequence and phylogenetic analyses of 18SExpand
Description of Globodera ellingtonae n. sp. (Nematoda: Heteroderidae) from Oregon.
A new species of cyst nematode, Globodera ellingtonae, is described from soil collected from a field in Oregon. Second-stage juveniles (J2) of the species are characterized by body length of 365-515Expand
Transcriptome Analysis of Resistant and Susceptible Alfalfa Cultivars Infected With Root-Knot Nematode Meloidogyne incognita
Nematodes are one of the major limiting factors in alfalfa production. Root-knot nematodes (RKN, Meloidogyne spp.) are widely distributed and economically important sedentary endoparasites ofExpand
Molecular characterization and phylogenetic evaluation of the hsp90 gene from selected nematodes.
While multiple genes are optimal for corroborating nematode phylogenies, only a few are commonly used. Here we examine the phylogenetic potential of the nuclear Hsp90 chaperone gene. We usedExpand
Effects of Geldanamycin on Hatching and Juvenile Motility in Caenorhabditis elegans and Heterodera glycines
Several Streptomyces species are known to produce metabolites that inhibit plant pathogens. One such compound is geldanamycin (GA), a benzoquinone ansamycin originally isolated from StreptomycesExpand
Multiplex Real-Time PCR Assays for the Identification of the Potato Cyst and Tobacco Cyst Nematodes.
TaqMan primer-probe sets were developed for the detection and identification of potato cyst nematodes (PCNs) Globodera pallida and G. rostochiensis using two-tube, multiplex real-time polymeraseExpand
