Caenorhabditis elegans: lectin-mediated modification of chemotaxis



Caenorhabditis elegans: lectin-mediated modification of chemotaxis



Experimental Parasitology, 591: 90-97



Binding of concanavalin A (Con A) and limulin to C. elegans wild type resulted in consistent, reproducible, partial inhibition of chemoattraction to sterile filtrates of Escherichia coli. Normal chemotaxis resumed within 8 h following treatment with these lectins. Competitive displacement of Con A or limulin by flooding with the specific sugars resulted in rapid resumption of normal chemotactic behaviour.
