One approach to the development of control strategies for nematodes is the disruption of hatching. In some species, a cation-mediated change in eggshell permeability is an early indicator of hatching [1]. Additionally, numerous studies have indicated involvement in hatching of enzymes, particularly metalloenzymes. For example, the microbivorous nematode Caenorhabditis elegans secretes HCH-1 metalloproteinase into the perivitelline fluid before hatching [2], and a Zn2+-dependent leucine… CONTINUE READING
