Homologs of Caenorhabditis elegans Chemosensory Genes Have Roles in Behavior and Chemotaxis in the Root-Knot Nematode Meloidogyne incognita

Shivakumara and colleagues use knowledge of C. elegans chemosensation to identify four genes in the parasitic nematode, Meloidogyne incognita, that are induced in infectious larvae and expressed in chemosensory neurons. Knockdown experiments show that these genes are required for chemotaxis towards root exudate and for infection of the plant host.
