Proteases perform essential physiological functions in all living organisms. In parasitic helminths, they are of particular importance for tissue penetration, digestion of host tissues for nutrition, and evasion of host immune responses. The recent availability of the genome sequence of the nematode Meloidogyne incognita has allowed the analysis of the protease repertoire of this major crop pathogen. The M. incognita degradome consists of at least 334 proteases that are distributed into 43… CONTINUE READING
