Progress in attempts to establish that a gene for gene relationship exists between potato cyst-nematodes and potatoes bearing genes for resistance is reviewed. An antibody/antigen relationship may exist between host cell contents and nematode saliva. It seems that all pathotypes of Heterodera rostochiensis and H. pallida are able to induce syncytial transfer cells in potato plants whatever their constitution but whether they can do so depends on a compatible response to nematode saliva. The induction system for transfer cells and the host cell/nematode saliva system appear to be separate entities. These ideas give a new slant to host parasite relationships of plant parasitic nematodes and suggest new and possibly more fruitful lines of research than those at present being prosecuted.
