Control of Root-knot Nematodes on Tomato by Lectins.
Significant control of tomato root knot was achieved by applications of the lectins Concanavalin A (Con A) and Limax flavus agglutinin in greenhouse, growth chamber, and microplot trials. Four
Evidence for a morphologically distinct and functionally robust cell type in the proximal tubules of human kidney.
A novel robust cell type with a contrasting biological role to that of the bulk of proximal tubular epithelium is suggested by a novel human kidney explant model of ATN.
Caenorhabditis elegans and Panagrellus redivivus: enzyme-mediated modification of chemotaxis.
Experimental and supporting evidence is presented that behavioral modification resulted from functional impairments to receptors located within chemosensory sensilla.

Adhesion of conidia of the endoparasitic fungus Drechmeria coniospora to the cuticles of the wild type and four different head defective mutants of Caenorhabditis elegans, and subsequent infection, was studied, indicating that the proteinaceous material emanating from the sensory structures was rapidly replaced.
Caenorhabditis elegans: lectin-mediated modification of chemotaxis.
Experimental evidence support the premise that behavioral modification was caused by functional impairments caused by Con A and limulin to chemoreceptors located on sensory dendrites of the cephalic sensilla.
Involvement of Sialic Acid in Nematode Chemotaxis and Infection by an Endoparasitic Nematophagous Fungus
The results show the importance of sialic acids in nematode chemotaxis and also in adhesion of conidia of M. coniospora, suggesting a link between attraction and adhesion in this system.
Fluorescent and Ferritin Labelling of Cuticle Surface Carbohydrates of Caenorhabditis elegans and Panagrellus redivivus.
Rhodamine-labelled peanut agglutinin and Limax flavus agglUTinin did not label nematodes of either species, whereas mannose-glucose residues were specifically localized in the head areas of both species.
Control of Root-Knot Nematodes on Tomato by the Endoparasitic Fungus Meria coniospora.
The endoparasitic nematophagous fungus Meria coniospora reduced root-knot nematode galling on tomatoes in greenhouse pot trials. The fungus was introduced to pots by addition of conidia at several
Panagrellus redivivus: failure to find evidence for the occurrence and biosynthesis of sialic acids.
Mild acid hydrolysis, however, did not release radioactively labeled sialic acids or derivatives as tested by radio thin-layer chromatography, suggesting that P. redivivus does not contain or synthesize sIALic acids.
Caenorhabditis elegans: comparisons of chemotactic behavior from monoxenic and axenic culture.
These results support those of a previous study in which large differences in growth, development, behavior, and longevity were shown for C. elegans in comparative assays of the monoxenic and axenic regimes.
