dc.description.abstract <p>Nematode parasitism genes encode secreted effector proteins that play a role in host infection. A homologue of the expressed <em>Hg4F01</em> gene of the root-parasitic soybean cyst nematode, <em>Heterodera glycines</em>, encoding an annexin-like effector, was isolated in the related <em>Heterodera schachtii</em> to facilitate use of <em>Arabidopsis thaliana</em> as a model host. <em>Hs4F01</em> and its protein product were exclusively expressed within the dorsal oesophageal gland secretory cell in the parasitic stages of <em>H. schachtii.</em> Hs4F01 had a 41% predicted amino acid sequence identity to the nex-1 annexin of <em>C. elegans</em> and 33% identity to annexin-1 (<em>annAt1</em>) of <em>Arabidopsis</em>, it contained four conserved domains typical of the annexin family of calcium and phospholipid binding proteins, and it had a predicted signal peptide for secretion that was present in nematode annexins of only <em>Heterodera</em> spp. Constitutive expression of <em>Hs4F01</em> in wild-type <em>Arabidopsis</em> promoted hyper-susceptibility to <em>H. schachtii</em> infection. Complementation of an <em>AnnAt1</em> mutant by constitutive expression of <em>Hs4F01</em>reverted mutant sensitivity to 75mM NaCl, suggesting a similar function of the Hs4F01 annexin-like effector in the stress response by plant cells. Yeast two-hybrid assays confirmed a specific interaction between Hs4F01 and an <em>Arabidopsis</em> oxidoreductase member of the 2OG-Fe(II) oxygenase family, a type of plant enzyme demonstrated to promote susceptibility to oomycete pathogens. RNA interference assays that expressed double-stranded RNA complementary to <em>Hs4F01</em> in transgenic <em>Arabidopsis</em> specifically decreased parasitic nematode <em>Hs4F01</em> transcript levels and significantly reduced nematode infection levels. The combined data suggest that nematode secretion of an Hs4F01 annexin-like effector into host root cells may mimic plant annexin function during the parasitic interaction.</p>
