Solanoeclepin A, a complex triterpenoid, was isolated in 1986 by Mulder and co-workers and is a hatch stimulus for the potato cyst nematode, which inflicts considerable damage to crop plants. Cyst nematodes are notoriously hard to exterminate and as such attention has been drawn to study of such stimuli in order to eradicate this problem.
