      Background. The yellow potato cyst nematode, Globodera rostochiensis, is a devastating plant pathogen of global economic importance. This biotrophic parasite secretes effectors from pharyngeal glands, some of which were ...
    • Genomic characterisation of the effector complement of the potato cyst nematode Globodera pallida 

      Thorpe, Peter; Mantelin, Sophie; Cock, Peter JA; Blok, Vivian C.; Coke, Mirela C.; Eves-van den Akker, Sebastian; Guzeeva, Elena; Lilley, Catherine J.; Smant, Geert; Reid, Adam J.; Wright, Kathryn M.; Urwin, Peter E.; Jones, John T. (2014-10-23) - Journal article
      Background: The potato cyst nematode Globodera pallida has biotrophic interactions with its host. The nematode induces a feeding structure - the syncytium - which it keeps alive for the duration of the life cycle and on ...
