Kinetics of capture and infection of infective larvae of trichostrongylides and free-living nematodes Panagrellus sp. by Duddingtonia flagrans
TLDR
It was possible to verify that the process of trap formation and capture occurs quickly when both nematodes were tested, suggesting that the organisms would eventually be killed once in contact with the fungi encouraging the use of the fungus as a biological control agent. Expand
Acid phosphatase activity during the interaction of the nematophagous fungus Duddingtonia flagrans with the nematode Panagrellus sp.
TLDR
The participation of acid phosphatase activity and its importance during the interaction of the fungus with the nematode were discussed and this enzyme was significantly higher for the fungus-nematode interaction when compared to the organisms alone, indicating a synergistic response. Expand
Serine proteases activity is important for the interaction of nematophagous fungus Duddingtonia flagrans with infective larvae of trichostrongylides and free-living nematodes Panagrellus spp.
TLDR
The aim of this study was to investigate the participation of proteolytic enzymatic activity during the interaction of the nematophagous fungus D. flagrans with infective larvae of trichostrongylides and the free-living nematode Panagrellus spp. Expand
[Comparison of the efficacy of different isolates of the nematode-trapping fungi Arthrobotrys spp. and Duddingtonia flagrans in reducing infective larvae of nematodes after passage through the
TLDR
The results indicate the potential of D. flagrans as a biological control agent for sheep nematodes and evaluates the capacity to survive the passage through the digestive tract and be efficient in reducing infective larvae of nematode in the faeces. Expand
