Nemin extracted from five different species of nematodes induced the production of predaceous structures by the nematode-trapping fungus, Monacrosporiuni doedycoides. Quantitative differences in the ability of the different nematodes to induce trap formation were noted. The RNA synthesis inhibitor 6-methyl purine when applied at the same time with the various nemins completely inhibited trap formation by the fungus. Application of the 6-methyl purine 1 hour after the addition of the various nemins had no effect on the number of traps formed. Two compounds that inhibit normal protein synthesis (5-fluorouracil and p-fluorophenylalanine) also exhibited a similar trap inhibition effect. The mechanism of nemin-induced trap formation in M. doedycoides seemed to be at the level of transcription.
