The genome sequence and gene predictions of Arthrobotrys oligospora were not determined by the JGI, but were downloaded from NCBI and have been. Therefore, we investigated the behavioral and molecular basis for how C. elegans responds to Arthrobotrys oligospora, one of the most. Of the 13 nematode-trapping fungi previously detected at the Bodega Marine Reserve (BMR, Sonoma County, CA, USA), Arthrobotrys oligospora is by far the.

To minimize the risk of being eaten, prey have often evolved specific behaviors and strategies such as camouflage, avoidance, mimicry, arthroobotrys tonic immobility to increase their chance of survival. Chemotaxis assays Unless noted otherwise, chemotaxis assays were population assays performed with synchronized adult animals in the presence of sodium azide as described previously Bargmann et al.

Evolution of nematode-trapping cells of predatory fungi of the Orbiliaceae based on evidence from rRNA-encoding DNA and multiprotein sequences. Please review our privacy policy. The CI was calculated based on the formula presented. Specimen record 3.

Since trap morphogenesis takes more than 12 hr, there is a long period during which nematodes could escape before the functional traps become fully developed. Solid-phase microextraction SPME was used to sample headspace volatiles from vials containing medium inoculated with A.

In order to show that this is a “striking example of coevolution” DiscussionI think the authors need more convincing evidence that the production of these signals is a trait that has arisen as a result of the predatory lifestyle. Figure 6—figure supplement 2. Image analysis was done using a custom script written in Python that calculated fluorescence intensity from an individual region of interest ROI Cho and Sternberg, For individual genes, we computed the significance for differences of gene activity between AWC and whole larvae with DESeq2 Love et al.


The funders had no role in study design, data collection and interpretation, or the decision to submit the work for publication. We still observed significant attraction of C. We found that the adult C. To analyse overall gene expression levels in AWC neurons, we pooled all million RNA-seq reads from both the nine-cell pool and the five individual cells into a single AWC read set before mapping them and computing their genewise TPMs.

Several of the odors we identified from A. These cookies allow us to see information on user website activities including, but not limited to page views, source and time spent on a website.

How does multiple testing correction work? Specimen record 5. Nitrite, nitrate and ammonium salts are suitable inorganic N sources Couldn’t it be any number of other transcriptional targets of odr-7 that would affect the behavior e.

It has a relatively high competitive saprophytic ability compared to other nematode-trapping fungi with constricting rings but was found to be sensitive to antagonistic influences by various soil organisms All reads were quality-filtered as follows: Indeed, we found that when C. Figure 7—source data 2. The description and identification of volatiles that attract C. Parasitized nematodes contain a substance that paralyses healthy nematodes; the presence of an unstable fungal toxin is assumed In turn, predators also evolved enhanced predatory strategies to secure food sufficient to survive and reproduce, giving rise to an evolutionary arms race between predator and prey Dawkins and Krebs, In the interests of transparency, eLife includes the editorial decision letter and accompanying author responses.


We then measured the AWC on activity in response to different odorants via a microfluidic device the olfactory chip Chronis et al. Genetic screening suggests redundancy for the MMB receptor We conducted a genetic screen to identify genes that encode a receptor for MMB.

We identified two independent odr-7 mutants in our genetic screen but not any other mutants that exhibited a strong reduction in MMB chemotaxis, as one might expect if MMB attraction was mediated via a single chemosensory receptor.

Therefore, we have removed the srx result and removed the gene name from our model figure. Aggressive chemical mimicry of moth pheromones by a bolas spider: The influence of the soil moisture level in remoistened air-dried soil on restoration of soil mycostasis was studied using A.
