  • Several carbohydrates have been identified on the surface of free-living, plantparasitic, and animal-parasitic nematodes (1-3,5,7,8). The function of these carbohydrates is uncertain, but they could be involved in the nematode-host recognition process (9). 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 (4). Infective, second-stage A… CONTINUE READING
