Duddingtonia flagrans, a nematode-trapping fungus, has been investigated as an agent for biological control against infective larvae of gastrointestinal nematode parasites of production animals. The initial process of nematode-trapping fungi infection is based on an interaction between the trap structure of the fungus and the surface of the nematode cuticle. This report investigates by light and scanning electron microscopy the kinetics of capture and infection during the interaction of D… Expand

Ovicidal activity of seven Pochonia chlamydosporia fungal isolates on Ascaris suum eggs
TLDR
The ovicidal effect of the nematophagous fungus Pochonia chlamydosporia on eggs of Ascaris suum was tested and indicated that it is a potential biological control agent of nematodes. Expand
Assessment of germination and carnivorous activities of a nematode-trapping fungus Arthrobotrys dactyloides in fungistatic and fungicidal soil environment
TLDR
Conidial traps, which trapped the nematodes, grew well in all soils after killing and nutrient absorption from nematode body, and Sulphur, triademefon, and tricyclazole showed least toxic effect on conidial trap formation and nematODE capturing activities of A. dactyloides. Expand
Evaluation of biocontrol potential of Arthrobotrys oligospora against Meloidogyne graminicola and Rhizoctonia solani in Rice (Oryza sativa L.)
TLDR
Under field conditions, the biocontrol potential of A. oligospora against R. solani causing sheath blight of rice ( Oryza sativa ) for the first time is demonstrated and in vitro trap formation and predacity were tested against second-stage juveniles of M. graminicola and R.solani. Expand
Co-inoculation of Dactylaria brochopaga and Monacrosporium eudermatum affects disease dynamics and biochemical responses in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) to enhance bio-protection against Meloidogyne incognita
TLDR
The results of this study showed that these fungi reduced root-knot disease and enhanced accumulation of defence related biomolecules in tomato plants and has potential to serve as a biocontrol agents against root-Knot nematodes. Expand
Expression of serine proteinase P186 of Arthrobotrys oligospora and analysis of its nematode-degrading activity
TLDR
ReP186 was capable of degrading a series of protein substrates including casein, gelatin, bovine serum albumin, denatured collagen and nematode cortical layer and exhibited the maximal activity at pH 8.0 and 55 °C and was highly sensitive to the inhibitor, phenylmethanesulfonylfluoride. Expand
The recombinant serine protease XAoz1 of Arthrobotrys oligospora exhibits potent nematicidal activity against Caenorhabditis elegans and Haemonchus contortus.
TLDR
The purified reXAoz1 displayed a highly toxic and biological activity to immobilize C. elegans and H. contortus by degrading their cuticles and inducing death. Expand

Predatory behaviour of trapping fungi against srf mutants of Caenorhabditis elegans and different plant and animal parasitic nematodes.
TLDR
A bioassay was designed to investigate the predatory response of several isolates of nematode-trapping fungi against 3 mutants of Caenorhabditis elegans, which have been reported to differ in the reaction of their cuticle to antibodies and lectins. Expand
The potential of nematophagous fungi to control the free-living stages of nematode parasites of sheep: comparison between Australian isolates of Arthrobotrys spp. and Duddingtonia flagrans.
TLDR
Comparisons were made between the ability of the different isolates to survive gut passage and subsequently reduce infective larval numbers in sheep faeces, providing clear evidence that D. flagrans is an ideal candidate as a potential biological control agent for nematode parasites of sheep. Expand
Acid phosphatase activity during the interaction of the nematophagous fungus Duddingtonia flagrans with the nematode Panagrellus sp.
TLDR
The participation of acid phosphatase activity and its importance during the interaction of the fungus with the nematode were discussed and this enzyme was significantly higher for the fungus-nematode interaction when compared to the organisms alone, indicating a synergistic response. Expand
Formulation of a strategy for the application of Duddingtonia flagrans to control caprine parasitic gastroenteritis
TLDR
The observations reinforced the strategy to be adopted for nematode parasite control in goats by applying the biocontrol option at the onset of the monsoon by formulating a strategic control measure when the larval challenge to the animal is maximum, so as to prevent establishment of patent infection.

Interaction between the nematophagous fungus Duddingtonia flagrans and infective larvae of Haemonchus contortus (Nematoda: Trichostrongyloidea)
TLDR
The interaction between Duddingtonia flagrans and infective larvae of Haemonchus contortus was studied in vitro under optical and scanning electron microscopy and a mucilaginous substance occurred at the points of adherence of traps to nematode cuticle. Expand

It was shown that a proportion of trapping nets in A. oligospora maintained their trapping potential for more than 7 weeks when the temperature was below 25°C, and the composition of the medium had an important influence on the saprophytic growth and the net-forming capability of A.ligospora.
