A cyst nematode effector binds to diverse plant proteins, increases nematode susceptibility and affects root morphology.

Abstract

Cyst nematodes are plant-parasitic roundworms that are of significance in many cropping systems around the world. Cyst nematode infection is facilitated by effector proteins secreted from the nematode into the plant host. The cDNAs of the 25A01-like effector family are novel sequences that were isolated from the oesophageal gland cells of the soybean cyst… (More)
