Abstract: Entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN) are symbiotic with bacteria and play a vital role as biological control agents against pests.The research of pathogenicity of EPN is fundamental for the efficient application of EPN,involving the interaction between nematodes and their symbiotic bacteria on insects.In this paper,we reviewed the pathogenic factors of the EPNs of Steinernema spp.and Heterorhabditis spp.and the interaction mechanism between nematodes and host insects.The review would provide reference for further theoretical research and application of EPN.

Key words: entomopathogenic nematodes, pathogenicity, secreted protein, immunosuppression
