Abstract: Chitin (beta-1,4-linked-N-acetylglucosamine) is a major structural macromolecule in nematodes. Its presence in the eggshell and the lining of the pharynx confers protective benefits and also facilitates important steps of development. Chitin metabolism is considered to be highly conserved within roundworms - but not in the many plants and vertebrates that are parasitized by some of them ... read more
