Differential regulation of degradation and immune pathways underlies adaptation of the ectosymbiotic nematode Laxus oneistus to oxic-anoxic interfaces

Comparative transcriptomics and proteomics of the marine nematode Laxus oneistus suggests that, whenexperiencing anoxic sulfidic conditions, it rewires the electron transfer chain, upregulates degradation pathways and reinforces its characteristic coat of symbiotic sulfur-oxidising bacteria. In the presence of oxygen, instead it engages in energetically demanding processes suchas development, molting, and upregulates the expression of Toll receptors and of broadband antibiotics
