Table 1 Overview of PCR primers used for cellulase amplication from individual nematodes

From: Rather than by direct acquisition via lateral gene transfer, GHF5 cellulases were passed on from early Pratylenchidae to root-knot and cyst nematodes

  2. Conserved amino acid motives in GHF5 cellulases from plant parasitic nematodes residing in nematode Clade 12 (Holterman et al. 2006 [24]). Primer design was based on these motives, and all primers used in this study are listed bellow. A. The backbone sequence given below is derived from the predicted amino acid sequence of the potato cyst nematode (Globodera rostochiensis) cellulase Gr-eng-1 (GenBank AF004523), amino acid positions 18 – 324 (mainly catalytic domain). Underlined: part of signal peptide for secretion. B. Primer names and primer sequences.
