Action of a nematode-trapping fungus shows lectin-mediated host–microorganism interaction
Many nematode-trapping fungi capture nematodes using an adhesive present on specific capture organs (for review see ref. 1). Until recently, the mechanism of adhesion was completely unknown. In theExpand

Development and fate of electron-dense microbodies in trap cells of the nematophagous fungusArthrobotrys oligospora
The development of electron-dense microbodies in cells of capture organs of the nematophagous fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora was studied with different ultrastructural techniques. Kinetic experimentsExpand

Fungal parasitism of the cyst nematode Heterodera schachtii: infection and enzymatic activity
Abstract Fungal egg parasites isolated from eggs of the cyst nematode Heterodera avenae in Sweden were investigated with respect to their ability to infect cyst nematode eggs of H. schachtii inExpand

The Influence of Medium Composition and Additions of Animal Origin on the Formation of Capture Organs in Arthrobotrys oligospora
The formation of capture organs for nematodes in A. oligospora. and its dependence on substrate composition and additions of animal origin was studied in laboratory experiments. Variations in onlyExpand

An electron-microscopical analysis of capture and initial stages of penetration of nematodes byArthrobotrys oligospora
A detailed analysis was made of the capture and subsequent penetration of nematodes by the nematophagous fungusArthrobotrys oligospora using different electron-microscopical techniques. Capture ofExpand

Occurrence and metabolic significance of microbodies in trophic hyphae of the nematophagous fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora
This paper describes the results of an ultrastructural study on the subcellular events occurring in nematode-infecting (trophic) hyphae of the nematophagous fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora. In earlyExpand

Heavy trap formation by Arthrobotrys oligospora in liquid culture
The nematode-trapping fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora was grown in liquid culture in modified separatory funnels with vigorous air bubbling. The growth medium was a dilute soya peptone brothExpand

Surface polymers of the nematode-trapping fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora.
The nematophagous fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora captures nematodes using adhesive polymers present on special hyphae (traps) which form a three-dimensional network. To understand further theExpand

Attraction of Nematodes to Living Mycelium of Nematophagous Fungi
Methods were designed to detect attraction and repulsion of nematodes by fungi and determine the attraction intensity of different fungi. Of 23 fungi tested, 15 attracted the bacteria-feedingExpand
