The pciniaresentation describe the life cycle of Pythium, Albugo, Erysiphae, Claviceps, Ustilago, Puccinia. Albugo is a genus of plant-parasitic oomycetes. Those are not true fungi ( Eumycota), although Albugo candida, on Capsella bursa-pastoris oospores) and asexual spores (called sporangia) in a many-stage (polycyclic) disease cycle . Albugo candida commonly known as white rust, is a species of oomycete in the family 1 Distribution; 2 Hosts; 3 Symptoms; 4 Life-cycle; 5 References; 6 Further This pathogen infects plants in the family Brassicaceae; the growth stages.

It has also been observed that A. It then dips deep into the ooplasm. The oospores are perennating bodies and survive in adverse conditions.

The dense cytoplasm within the oosphere contains one female nucleus in it and called the ooplasm. One functional male nucleus transfers through the tube, reaches the egg, fuses with the female nucleus and the rest of the nuclei of the antheridium degenerate.

Finally they settle down on the host, retract the flagella and round off. The chains of sporangia lengthen and press on the epidermis above. They are blown away in the air by wind or washed away by rain water under suitable environmental conditions and falling on a suitable host, sporangia germinates with in 2 or 3 hours.

Thick-walled sexual spores, called oospores are produced which germinate, producing either vesicles inside the plant tissue, exit tubes with vesicles at the tip, or germ tubes. The outer is more electron dense than the inner. Such oospore is called a compound oospore. The oogonium is rounded and the antheridium club-shaped. The sporangium bursts anteriorly and the zoospores liberate in the film of water. The zoospores after swimming for sometime encyst and germinate by a germ tube which reinfects the host plant Fig.


These are called biological forms or physiological forms. It ends in a thin vesicle. They are then blown away in the air by wind or washed away by rain water. Those are not true fungi Eumycotaalthough many discussions of this organism still treat it as a fungus.

When the mycelium has reached a certain stage of maturity it epidermis produces pads of hyphae at certain areas just below the epidermis. Within the sporangium wall is the highly convoluted plasma membrane enclosing the dense cytoplasm containing up to 4 nuclei. Species of the Albuginaceae deform the branches and flower parts of many host species.

The first formed sporangium is a aleuriosporangium. The fibrous product of dissolution of the middle layer is held in position by the pellicle which covers both the sporangia and the sporangiophore.

According to one view, all the nuclei excepting one are cgcle from the ooplasm and are deposited in the periplasm. This is a question and answer forum for students, teachers and general visitors for exchanging articles, answers and notes. The oospore on maturity secretes a two to three layered wall Fig. The ooplasm is surrounded by the peripheral cytoplasm constituting the periplasm.

The second cycl advocates the blastic mode of development.

Articles with ‘species’ microformats. It separates the terminal oogonium from the rest of the female hypha. Soon after the formation of the first sporangium, the breakdown of its basal septum begains.

Thereafter the fertilisation tube collapes but persists and the coenocentrum vanishes. External to the oospore wall are the two addition protective investments formed albuo the persistent periplasm and the oogonial wall. Its formation is externally qlbugo by hypertrophy. The sex organs arise on separate hyphae called the male and the female hyphae A. White rust can be a devastating disease on many important agricultural crops throughout the world. Answer Now and help others. However, at the time of maturity, all nuclei disintegrate, except single functional nucleus Fig.

According to Vanterpool, the zoospores are, at first, released in a sessile vesicle formed by the swelling of the papilla.

Albugo candida – Wikipedia

When infection is recognized, systemically infected plant material including culled crops should be completely removed and destroyed. Retrieved 5 September At the end of mitosis one daughter nucleus of each spindle goes to the ooplasm and the other to the periplasm F.

Later the vacuoles disappear and the multinucleate protoplast undergo division. White rust is an economically important foliar disease, causing substantial yield losses and eventual death of various crops. Severe infection causes proliferation of the lateral buds, discoloration of flowers, malformation of floral parts and sterile gynoecium. The place of meiosis in Albugo is still under dispute. They held that Albugo and other Oomycetes, as a whole, are haploid.

In the very beginning the hyphae accumulate just beneath the epidermis of the infected leaf.
