Horizontal Gene Transfer from Bacteria Has Enabled the Plant-Parasitic Nematode Globodera pallida to Feed on Host-Derived Sucrose.
TLDR
It is shown that the GH32 sequences from an economically important cyst nematode species, Globodera pallida are functional invertases, are expressed during feeding and are restricted in expression to the nematodes digestive system, consistent with a role in metabolizing host-derived sucrose.
Genomic characterisation of the effector complement of the potato cyst nematode Globodera pallida
TLDR
This is the first genome scale search for effectors, combined to a life-cycle expression analysis, for any plant-parasitic nematode, and shows that, like other phylogenetically unrelated plant pathogens, plant parasitic nematodes deploy hundreds of effectors in order to parasitise plants, with different effectors required for different phases of the infection process.
Aoruroides cochinchinensis sp. n. (Oxyurida: Thelastomatidae) from Vietnamese Panesthiinae wood-burrowing cockroaches
A new thelastomatid species, Aoruroides cochinchinensis sp. n., is described from the hindgut of Vietnamese Panesthiinae cockroaches collected in Bi Doup-Nui Ba National Park. It is the first report
[Cuticle ultrastructure of the fresh-water horsehair worm Gordionus alpestris (Villot, 1885) (Nematomorpha)].
TLDR
The cuticular structure of the horsehair worm Gordionus alpestris (Villot, 1885) was studied under scanning and transmission electron microscopes and similarities with other Nematomorpha species with the known cuticle ultrastucture are discussed.
The egg-shell ultrastructure of Blatticola blattae (Graeffe, 1860) (Oxyuridomorpha: Thelastomatidae)
TLDR
The egg-shell ultrastructure of Blatticola blattae has been studied under scanning and transmission electron microscopy and it consists of five layers: a lipid layer, a chitinouslayer, a vitelline layer, internal and external uterine layers.
[Severianoia blapticola sp. n. (Oxyurida: Thelastomatidae): a new nematode species from blaberid cockroaches].
TLDR
A new nematode species of the genus Severianoia, S. blapticola sp.
