A root-knot nematode small glycine and cysteine-rich secreted effector, MiSGCR1, is involved in plant parasitism.

Abstract

Root-knot nematodes, Meloidogyne spp., are obligate endoparasites that maintain a biotrophic relationship with their hosts. They infect roots as microscopic vermiform second-stage juveniles, and establish specialized feeding structures called 'giant-cells', from which they withdraw water and nutrients. The nematode effector proteins secreted in planta are… (More)
