Project: Aberrant cell cycles in nematode-çnduced feeding cells in plant roots.

project duration
01-JAN-02 – 31-DEC-06
abstract
The aberrant cell cycles in giant cells and syncytia induced by plant parasitic nematodes in plant roots will be analysed at the molecular level via protein immunolocalisation and mRNA in situ hybridisation. Plant and nematode genes that are possibly involved in these aberrant cell cycles and thus are necessary for the development of the feeding cells will be functionally analysed.
