Abstract

"Although it is speculated that sedentary plant-parasitic nematodes secrete effectors into the apoplastic space and the cytoplasm of host cells to protect their feeding structures against the host’s innate immune system, little is known of the modulation of host immunity by nematodes in plants. Here we report the identification of a family of effectors in the potato cyst nematode G. rostochiensis that suppresses immune responses in host plants. Members of this gene family, named GR1106, encode positively selected, multi-domain proteins that target the nucleolus of plant cells."
