Does anyone know of any research regarding the effect of the natural
nematocide alpha terthienyl (found in Marigolds) on C. elegans?  All of
work that I have been able to discover was done with plant parasitic
nematodes, and to my knowledge no one has done any studies in C. elegans.
Our lab is working on this this compound, and I'm trying to find out what
might be known about this nematocide and its biological targets.  Some
information is available from studies on mosquito larvae, but that is all
have found so far.

I'd appreciate any leads!
