Caenorhabditis elegans and Panagrellus redivivus were investigated for surface carbohydrates using fluorescent-labelled and ferritin-labelled lectins. Rhodamine-labelled Concanavalin A was specifically located in the cephalic region of both species. Rhodamine-labelled wheat germ agglutinin was located over the entire cuticle of P. redivivus but was absent on C. elegans. Rhodamine-labelled peanut agglutinin and Limax flavus agglutinin did not label nematodes of either species. Galactose and… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

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.
Lectin binding to secretory structures, the cuticle and the surface coat of Toxocara canis infective larvae.
TLDR
The compartmentalization of the sugars N- acetyl galactosamine and N-acetyl glucosamine, their sources and routes of surface expression and the possible association with the TES glycoprotein antigens are discussed.
Wheat Germ Agglutinin Binding to the Outer Cuticle of the Plant-parasitic Nematode Anguina tritici.
TLDR
This note reports on the occurrence and identity of carbohydrates or saccharides on the cuticle of Anguina tritici, a host-specific parasite that has a life cycle closely linked with that of its cereal hosts.
Characterization of Carbohydrates on the Surface of Second-stage Juveniles of Meloidogyne spp.
TLDR
Structural differences in amphidial carbohydrate complexes among populations of Mi 1, Mi3, and Mj were revealed by glycohydrolase treatment of preinfective J2 and subsequent labeling with fluorescent lectins.
Lectin binding sites on the amphidial exudates of meloidogyne.
TLDR
Species and race specific binding patterns were observed for both amphidial and cuticular binding sites in Meloidogyne incognita Races 1, 2, 3, and 4.

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.

TLDR
Mannose residues may be involved in the helminth's chemoreceptors for feeding and sexual attraction, based on the specific binding of LcA.

TLDR
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.

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.
Differential Adhesion and Infection of Nematodes by the Endoparasitic Fungus Meria coniospora (Deuteromycetes)
TLDR
Previous findings indicating involvement of sialic acids localized on nematode cuticles in recognition of prey by M. coniospora are supported, and a delay in infection by 2 to 3 days is supported.
Binding Characteristics of Lectins Involved in the Trapping of Nematodes by Fungi
TLDR
The presence of d-glucose/d-mannose and l-fucose residues on the nematode cuticle was suggested through the use of commercially prepared lectin-peroxidase conjugates, and the ability to capture nematodes was eliminated through exposure to trypsin.
