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 .

Here they divide mitotically og the spindles lying in such a way that one pole of each that one pole mitosis one daughter nucleusthe ooplasm and the other in the periplasm E.

Sometimes both Albugo and Peronosporaoccur on the same host particularly Capsella bursapastoris. The sexual reproduction is highly oogamous type. The asexual reproduction takes place by means of biflagellate zoospores formed inside the sporangia.

This is a question and answer forum for students, teachers and general visitors for exchanging articles, answers and notes. The flagella are attached laterally near the vacuole. Re-infection of the host and infection of other albuyo plants in the vicinity goes on by the production of sporangia throughout the growing season.

It is an obligate parasite distributed all over the world. Species of the Albuginaceae deform the branches and flower parts of many host species. It is warty or tuberculate.

In the very beginning the hyphae accumulate just beneath the epidermis of the infected ccyle. As the second sporangium increases in size it pushes the first upward without disjunction.


The asexual reproduction takes place by conidia, condiosporangia or zoosporangia.

According to StevensSansome and Sansomethe thallus of Albugo is diploid and the meiosis occurs in gametangla i. With the secretion of the wall, the zygotic nucleus divides repeatedly to form about 32 nuclei. This terminal dub-shaped cell is called an antheridium.

The sporangial initial arises as a bud from it A. After the completion of the basal septum and conversion of the initial into a full-fledged sporangium, a new sporangium initial grows as a bud from the sporogenous locus B.

Light rain or irrigation lasting for extended periods of time is also ideal for disease development. Any susceptible plants or weeds should be mowed or eliminated to reduce spread.

Albugo candida – Wikipedia

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 hyphae live and ramify in the intercellular spaces of the susceptible host tissue. Retrieved 5 September The antheridium develops on the terminal end of another hypha lying very close to the oogonium.

They are produced on the lif. The development of sex organs within the host tissue is externally indicated by hypertrophy and distoration in shape in the particular organ.

The mature sporangiophores are thus longer, more thick-walled and show annellations. Water mould plant pathogens and diseases Canola diseases. The oospore then germinates to release the zoospores by either of the two following methods: So, the oospore is uninucleate.

However, Sansome and Sansome have advanced evidence in support of gametangial meiosis and diploid life cycle in Albugo Candida. It undergoes zygotic meiosis. The flagella are withdrawn. The thick highly differentiated oospore wall together with the two surrounding additional layers contributes to the longevity of Albugo oospore.


When infection is recognized, systemically infected plant material including culled crops should be completely removed and destroyed. The second sporangium is delimited in the same manner as the first. What structures in different plants favor self-pollination?

Increase in the size of the cells hypertrophy and organs takes place. The number of functional egg nucleus in ooplasm is one. On the onset of conditions favourable for growth, the oospore germinates.

The end of the male hypha enlarges into club-shaped swelling. The pustules are initially formed on the lower surface of the leaf but in several cases they may be present on both the surfaces Fig.

It has a disc-like contractile vacuole on one side and is furnished with two flagella, one short and one long. Retrieved 24 September The latter then continues to grow leaving the haustorium as a side branch. A small amount of cytoplasm gathers around each daughter nucleus. Candida infects only one host e. This is a question and answer forum for students, teachers and general visitors for exchanging articles, answers and notes. These are called biological forms or physiological forms.

Biology, Ecology and Management. Albugo can, however, be distinguished from Peronospora by the smaller diameter of its hyphae and more numerous, vesicular haustoria Fig. Septa remain suppressed in the actively growing hyphae but appear to separate reproductive structures and to seal off injured parts.
