The role of flavonoids in the interaction between the plant, Medicago truncatula and the nematode, Meloidogyne javanica

Chin, Sabrina


Flavonoids are plant secondary metabolites which are common in all vascular plants. They play numerous functions in plants, ranging from UV protection, pigments, signalling molecules, defence to auxin transport inhibition for plant development. Flavonoids are potentially manipulated by the root-knot nematodes, Meloidogyne spp. to hijack multiple plant functions. This is especially of interest in the study of Meloidogyne parasitism because these nematodes have an extraordinarily broad host range...[Show more]
