Plant nematology.

Book cover for Plant nematology.



Chapter 9 (Page no: 234)

Molecular aspects of plant-nematode interactions.

This chapter on plant-nematode interactions contains sections on nematode parasitism of plants, invasion and migration in host tissue, wound and defence responses of the plant, protection from host responses, molecular and cellular aspects of the development of nematode feeding cells (cellular changes, cell wall and membrane modifications, changes in the cytoskeleton, nuclear changes and cell activation, and signal transduction pathways and transcription factors), nematode signals for feeding site induction (chorismate mutase, CLAVATA3-like peptides, ubiquitin pathway, cytokinins, and nodulation factors), comparative analysis of the invasion process and feeding sites of cyst (Heterodera and Globodera spp.) and root-knot (Meloidogyne sp.) nematodes, and resistance and avirulence genes in host plants.
