Significant control of tomato root knot was achieved by applications of the lectins Concanavalin A (Con A) and Limax flavus agglutinin in greenhouse, growth chamber, and microplot trials. Four consecutive weekly applications at lower concentrations of Con A yielded better control than single applications at a higher total concentration. The present state of knowledge on binding of Con A to soil nematodes and the in vitro effect of this lectin in chemotactic behavior are discussed. The mode of…

Root Tissue Response of Two Related Soybean Cultivars to Infection by Lectin-treated Meloidogyne spp.
It is suggested that carbohydrates may influence plant-nematode interactions and be responsible for normal root tissue response of soybean cultivars Centennial and Pickett 71 to infection by M. javanica.
Evaluation of control of Meloidogyne incognita and Nacobbus aberrans on tomato by two leguminous plants.
SUMMARY When the leguminous plant Concanavalia enszformis and tomato were cocultivated in greenhouse pot tests, a reduction in galling caused by Meloidogyne incognita and Nacobbus aberrans was
A bioassay to estimate root penetration by nematodes.
An in vitro bioassay with a 96-well microtiter plate was used to study the effect of lectins on burrowing nematode penetration of citrus roots, finding enhanced penetration associated with lectins.
Control of Meloidogyne incognita on tomato by two leguminous plants
Summary - Root galling of tomato due to Meloidogyne incognila was significantly reduced when the tropicallegumes Pueraria phaseoloides and Arachis pintoiwere co-cultured with tomato. Four other
Engineering plant nematode resistance by anti-feedants.
This work describes a prototype resistance based on the use of a plant proteinase inhibitor that has been improved by protein engineering that will assist development of durable field resistance against nematode species.
Novel Methods of Nematode Management
Careful integration of most suitable management components will help keep most nematode pests below damaging levels and may simplify the decisions that must be made about selecting and applying nematicide when they are needed.
Reproduction of lectin-treated Meloidogyne spp. in two related soybean cultivars
Impairment of host-finding and penetration may be responsible for reduced reproduction of sialic acid-treated Meloidogyne spp.
Appraisal of Moringa oleifera crude proteins for the control of root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita in banana
The objective of this study was to assess the ecofriendly nematicidal properties of different crude protein extracts precipitated from Moringa oleifera seeds against the RNK, Meloidogyne incognita, on banana cv.


Cuticular carbohydrates of three nematode species and chemoreception by Trichostrongylus colubriformis.
Mannose residues may be involved in the helminth's chemoreceptors for feeding and sexual attraction, based on the specific binding of LcA.
Caenorhabditis elegans: lectin-mediated modification of chemotaxis.
Characterization and Localization of Saccharides on the Head Region of Four Populations of the Potato Cyst Nematode Globodera rostochiensis and G. pallida.
TEM studies showed that N-acetylglucosamine and mannose/glucose were present on the exudate from the amphids of juveniles from the Ro population, and the Pa population differed from the other populations in the presence on all individuals of N- acetylgalactosamine or galactose and the absence of extensive residues of mannoses/ glucose.
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
Characterization of sialyl and galactosyl residues on the body wall of different plant parasitic nematodes.
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.
Nematode chemotaxis and possible mechanisms of host/prey recognition
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.
