Conversion of phenylalanine-1-C14 to phenylpyruvic acid-1-C14 was demonstrated with homogenates of Tylenchus agricola and Pratylenchus penetrans, giving the first evidence of a deamination system in plant parasitic nematodes. A commercially prepared paper strip, designed to test for the presence of phenylalanine deaminase in bacteria, was also utilized and found to be useful as a rapid method for identification of this enzyme in nematode homogenates.
