Abstract

We have isolated two full-length genomic DNA sequences, which encode the cuticle collagen proteins GP-COL-1 and GP-COL-2, from the potato cyst nematode Globodera pallida. A third, partial collagen gene ORF termed gp-col-t(t = truncated) has also been isolated and appears to represent an unexpressed pseudogene. The gp-col-l and gp-col-2 genes both contain three short (
