Identification of Pratylenchus Coffeae and P. Loosi Using Specific Primers for PCR Amplification of Ribosomal DNA
The 18-26S region of rDNA of P. coffeae and P. loosi were amplified by PCR from genomic DNA. Sequence analyses indicated that the 5.8S gene sequences were conserved whereas the internal transcribedExpand
Expression profile of jasmonic acid-induced genes and the induced resistance against the root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne incognita) in tomato plants (Solanum lycopersicum) after foliar treatment with
We investigated what gene(s) in the plant roots have the positive role against repressing root-knot nematode (RKN) infection. We investigated the interaction between RKN infection and gene expressionExpand
Effect of Temperature on Pratylenchus penetrans Development.
Reproduction and development of Pratylenchus penetrans were studied on genetically transformed ladino clover roots. Solitary females developing on transformed roots in nutrient gellan gum medium (pHExpand
Effects of DL-methionine on hatching and activity of Meloidogyne incognita eggs and juveniles.
Several concentrations of DL-methionine were tested in the laboratory for their effects on Meloidogyne incognita (Kofoid & White) Chitwood egg hatching and juvenile activity in aqueous suspensionsExpand
First report of Xiphinema brevicolle Lordello et Costa, 1961 (Nematoda, Longidoridae) in Japan
Abstract Mixed populations of Xiphinema americanum-group species were detected from a root zone soil sample of Japanese holly, Ilex crenata, during a survey for plant-parasitic nematodes ofExpand
Behaviour in constrained spaces reflects habitat adaptations of terrestrial nematodes
Terrestrial nematodes occupy a wide variety of habitats, including soils, plants and animals (McSorley, 2003). Habitat has a major influence on physical adaptation and species diversity, and it seemsExpand
Sclareol induces plant resistance to root-knot nematode partially through ethylene-dependent enhancement of lignin accumulation.
The root-knot nematode (RKN) is one of the most devastating parasitic nematodes of plants. Although some secondary metabolites released by the host plant play roles as defense substances againstExpand
