Cuticle-degrading proteases are extracellular subtilisin-like serine proteases that are secreted by entomopathogenic and nematophagous fungi. These proteases can digest the host cuticle during invasion of an insect or nematode and serve as a group of important virulence factors during the infection of nematodes by nematophagous fungi. To elucidate the mechanism of interaction between the proteases and the nematode cuticle, two cuticle-degrading proteases, Ver112 from Lecanicillium psalliotae… CONTINUE READING
