Mice infected by N. cyriacigeorgica GUH-2 presenting motor symptoms
Behavioral disorders in two mice. One with the rhythmic and vertical movements of the head (mouse up) and the other with hemiparesis (mouse down)
Number of nematodes affected in their movement using the touch response test
Wild type response to the touch response test is characterised by backward movements of the nematode and then a leak forward. We compared this reaction on N2 and BY250 nematodes lineages that were not in contact with supernatant (control). Nematode affected had the same reactions following the touching but with slow reactions or only backwards. We observed also forwards / backwards movements or motionless nematodes with only a movement of the nose. These kinds of phenotypes were observed on nematodes that were in contact with bacterial supernatant (N.farcinica 10152 or N.cyriacigeorgica GUH-2).
