Molecular aspects of plant-nematode interactions and their exploitation for resistance strategies
*Subscription may be required
Cyst- and root-knot nematodes are economically the most important plant parasitic erop pests. They establish sophisticated feeding sites (syncytia or giant cells) in host roots and cause stunted growth, reduced yield or death of the host plants. This review focusses on molecular aspects of the host-parasite relationship and possibilities that arise from this knowledge to engineer nematode resistance in plants.
