Various tests were made using healthy and Ditylenchus dipsaci-infected alfalfa tissues. Fresh sections of galled and healthy seedling tissues stained similarly with ruthenium red. However, galled tissues stained more deeply than healthy tissues with the hydroxamic acid reagent. No consistent differences were found in the quantities of pectins from galled or healthy tissues from established plants or 7 to 10-day-old seedlings. Neither galled nor healthy alfalfa tissues contained detectable amounts of free galacturonic acid or polygalacturonase. D. dipsaci extract with high polygalacturonase activity by viscometric assay failed to macerate fresh sections of alfalfa seedling tissues. It is concluded that pectinolytic enzymes are not of major importance in the disease caused by this nematode in alfalfa.
