Influence of lectins on female sex pheromone reception byHeterodera schachtii (Nematoda: Heteroderidae) males
TLDR
C. ensiformis lectin binding to the surface of the exudate produced by the secretory gland cell of the amphids, the main chemoreceptors, did not inhibit the passage of fluorochrome fluorescein isothiocyanate into the amphidial canals, where the receptor dendrites are localized.
Location and behavioral effects of lectin binding on entomopathogenic nematodes with different foraging strategies
TLDR
To determine the location of carbohydrate exudates on the surface of three species of entomopathogenic nematodes with different foraging strategies and to evaluate the importance of carbohydrates in host finding and recognition, lectins were used.
Permeability of chemosensillum-associated exudates for lectins in a plant-parasitic and in a free-living nematode
TLDR
The present investigation was performed to test possible differences in lectin permeabilities for chemosensillum-associated exudates of plant-parasitic and free-living nematodes.
Effects of Enzymes, Chemicals, and Tempertaure on Steinernema carpocapsae Attraction to Host Plasma.
TLDR
Nematode migration towards the source of attraction was unaffected by temperatures below 33 C but was impaired at 35 and 37 C, and the adverse effect of 5 mM and 10 mM NaIO on migratory behavior was reversed 24 hours after rinsing with buffered saline.
Strongyloides ratti: thermokinesis of glycolytic enzyme- and lectin-treated third-stage infective larvae in vitro
The infective third-stage larvae (L3s) of a parasitic nematode of rodents, Strongyloides ratti, showed three types of thermokinesis on a temperature gradient using an in vitro agarose tracking assay
Tissue treatment for whole mount internal lectin staining in the nematodes Caenorhabditis elegans, Panagrolaimus superbus and Acrobeloides maximus
TLDR
Acetone-only fixation was found to give strong and reproducible staining, which could be prevented either by periodate treatment of the organisms or by specific inhibitory sugars of the lectins under investigation.
CHEMOSENSORY PHYSIOLOGY OF NEMATODES
TLDR
The conformity of this model with the present knowledge of nematode chemosensory physiology is discussed, and a model of vertebrate and insect olfaction is presented, based on an idea expressed by Dodd and Castellucci (1991).

Involvement of Sialic Acid in Nematode Chemotaxis and Infection by an Endoparasitic Nematophagous Fungus
TLDR
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.
Sensory control of dauer larva formation in Caenorhabditis elegans
TLDR
Using temperature‐sensitive mutants, it is determined that the same defects which block entry into the dauer stage also prevent recovery of dauer larvae.

TLDR
Comparison of the tracks of wild-type and mutant animals responding to gradients of attractants indicates that sensory receptors in the head alone mediate the orientation response and that the direction of orientation is determined by the lateral motion of the head.
The Endoparasitic Nematophagous Fungus Meria coniospora Infects Nematodes Specifically at the Chemosensory Organs
TLDR
Conidia of the endoparasitic fungus Meria coniospora infected the bacterial-feeding nematode Panagrellus redivivus at specific sites, namely the mouth region and in male nematodes also in the tail, indicating the importance of sialic acids in the infection process.

The agglutinins dealt with in this presentation are constitutional surface components of sex cells and effect the initial contact at fertilization. The sex contact phenomenon is investigated in the
Nematode chemotaxis and possible mechanisms of host/prey recognition
TLDR
It has long been recognized that free-living nematodes utilize specific recogni­ tion mechanisms for finding their hosts or prey in the soil, and molecular recognition of "good" and "bad" bacteria undoubtedly comes into play, but here again definitive data are lacking.
Characterization of sialyl and galactosyl residues on the body wall of different plant parasitic nematodes.
TLDR
The existence and nature of sugar residues on the cuticle surface of nematodes could contribute to an understanding of the specific recognition by phytophagous nem atodes of their host, and perhaps also of the virus transmission mechanism in those nematode which serve as vectors.
Localization of Cuticular Binding Sites of Concanavalin A on Caenorhabditis elegans and Meloidogyne incognita.
Utilizing a Concanavalin A (Con A)-hemocyanin conjugate, the majority of cuticular Con A binding sites were shown to be localized on the head region of Caenorhabclitis elegans and Meloidogyne
