The use of Duddingtonia flagrans, a nematode-trapping fungus, has been investigated as a biological control method against free living larvae of gastrointestinal nematodes of livestock animals. This fungus captures and infects the nematode by cuticle penetration, immobilization and digestion of the internal contents. It has been suggested that this sequence of events occurs by a combination of physical and enzymatical activities. This report characterizes the acid phosphatase activity during… Expand
Serine proteases activity is important for the interaction of nematophagous fungus Duddingtonia flagrans with infective larvae of trichostrongylides and free-living nematodes Panagrellus spp.
TLDR
The aim of this study was to investigate the participation of proteolytic enzymatic activity during the interaction of the nematophagous fungus D. flagrans with infective larvae of trichostrongylides and the free-living nematode Panagrellus spp. Expand
Kinetics of capture and infection of infective larvae of trichostrongylides and free-living nematodes Panagrellus sp. by Duddingtonia flagrans
TLDR
It was possible to verify that the process of trap formation and capture occurs quickly when both nematodes were tested, suggesting that the organisms would eventually be killed once in contact with the fungi encouraging the use of the fungus as a biological control agent. Expand
Isolation and Characterization of China Isolates of Duddingtonia flagrans, a Candidate of the Nematophagous Fungi for Biocontrol of Animal Parasitic Nematodes
TLDR
The morphological plasticity of the isolated strain and the interaction of this strain with the nematode targets were observed by subjecting the infected trichostrongylide L3 to scanning electron microscopy. Expand
The potential of plant and fungal proteins in the control of gastrointestinal nematodes from animals.
TLDR
This work discusses the use of exogenous proteins and peptides in the control of gastrointestinal nematode infection with a focus on animal nematodes. Expand
Assessment of germination and carnivorous activities of a nematode-trapping fungus Arthrobotrys dactyloides in fungistatic and fungicidal soil environment
TLDR
Conidial traps, which trapped the nematodes, grew well in all soils after killing and nutrient absorption from nematode body, and Sulphur, triademefon, and tricyclazole showed least toxic effect on conidial trap formation and nematODE capturing activities of A. dactyloides. Expand
Evaluation of biocontrol potential of Arthrobotrys oligospora against Meloidogyne graminicola and Rhizoctonia solani in Rice (Oryza sativa L.)
TLDR
Under field conditions, the biocontrol potential of A. oligospora against R. solani causing sheath blight of rice ( Oryza sativa ) for the first time is demonstrated and in vitro trap formation and predacity were tested against second-stage juveniles of M. graminicola and R.solani. Expand
Co-inoculation of Dactylaria brochopaga and Monacrosporium eudermatum affects disease dynamics and biochemical responses in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) to enhance bio-protection against Meloidogyne incognita
TLDR
The results of this study showed that these fungi reduced root-knot disease and enhanced accumulation of defence related biomolecules in tomato plants and has potential to serve as a biocontrol agents against root-Knot nematodes. Expand
Can endophytic Arthrobotrys oligospora modulate accumulation of defence related biomolecules and induced systemic resistance in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) against root knot disease caused by Meloidogyne incognita
TLDR
Results suggest that application of A. oligospora, particularly endophytic, not only helps in control of nematodes but also increase plant growth as well as enhances the nutritional value of tomato fruits. Expand

Proteases and Their Involvement in the Infection and Immobilization of Nematodes by the Nematophagous Fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora
TLDR
The effects of PMSF on the immobilization of nematodes were probably due to serine proteases produced by the fungus, since the effects were observed when unbound inhibitor was washed away from the fungus before the nematode was added to the system. Expand
Improving the Pathogenicity of a Nematode-Trapping Fungus by Genetic Engineering of a Subtilisin with Nematotoxic Activity
TLDR
It is reported that a subtilisin-like extracellular serine protease designated PII is an important pathogenicity factor in the common nematode-trapping fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora and the paralyzing activity of PII was verified by demonstrating that a heterologous-produced PII had a nematotoxic activity when added to free-living nematodes.

Isolation and Characterization of a Serine Protease from the Nematophagous Fungus, Lecanicillium psalliotae, Displaying Nematicidal Activity
TLDR
The N-terminal amino acid residues of Ver112 shared a high degree of similarity with other cuticle-degrading proteases from nematophagous fungi which suggests a role in nematode infection. Expand
Purification and characterization of an extracellular serine protease from the nematode-trapping fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora.
TLDR
PII had an optimum activity between pH 7 and 9 and was susceptible to autodegradation, but was inhibited by several serine protease inhibitors including phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride (PMSF), chymostatin and antipain. Expand
COLONIZATION AND DIGESTION OF NEMATODES BY THE ENDOPARASITIC NEMATOPHAGOUS FUNGUS DRECHMERIA-CONIOSPORA
TLDR
Intimate association between fungal cell wall and nematodes cuticle suggested that leakage of nematode contents was prevented after outgrowth, and this pattern possibly having the advantage of preventing rupture of hyphae due to host movements. Expand
Infection-related surface proteins on conidia of the nematophagous fungus Drechmeria coniospora
TLDR
The protease inhibitor, chymostatin, inhibited infection of nematodes and growth of the conidia, suggesting the involvement of chymotrypsin-like proteases in the infection process. Expand
Acid phosphatase activity in excretion/secretion products from Heligmosomoides polygyrus adults: an indicator of the physiological status of the worms
TLDR
Results indicate that the AP activity level in the culture medium may be an indicator of the physiological status of the worms. Expand
The potential of nematophagous fungi to control the free-living stages of nematode parasites of sheep: comparison between Australian isolates of Arthrobotrys spp. and Duddingtonia flagrans.
TLDR
Comparisons were made between the ability of the different isolates to survive gut passage and subsequently reduce infective larval numbers in sheep faeces, providing clear evidence that D. flagrans is an ideal candidate as a potential biological control agent for nematode parasites of sheep.

In vivo passage through calves of nematophagous fungi selected for biocontrol of parasitic nematodes.
TLDR
The experiment was designed to test the survival and performance of stress selected nematophagous fungi after passage through the gastro-intestinal tract of cattle with a fixed amount of fungal material grown on barley grains. Expand

TLDR
Under Danish climatic conditions it has been shown that the number of parasite larvae on pasture and the worm burden of the grazing animals is significantly reduced when animals are fed spores during the initial 2–3 months of the pasture season. Expand
