Abstract Extracts prepared from the microbivorous nematode Panagrellus redivivus and the plant-parasitic nematode Meloidogyne incognita were used to provide general protease activities for peptide substrate screening and species comparisons. Each extract was evaluated for its ability to degrade a broad range of nematode FMRFamide-like peptides (FLPs), key regulatory messengers governing nematode growth and development. Clear quantitative differences between the two extracts were observed using… Expand
