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 .

Hyphae are intercellular, coenocytic, aseptate and profusely branched Fig. When liberated, the sporangia inside the pustules are spread by wind, rain, and insects. The zoospores move out into the thin vesicle lfe soon perishes to liberate the zoospores.

On coming in contact with a suitable host. Retrieved 5 September They are arranged in a closely packed palisade like layer forming a sorus between the epidermis and the mesophyll of the host leaf.

This page was last edited on 5 Septemberat The oldest sporangia have none. The inner layer is thin and culled the endospore. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved from ” https: It then rounds off and secretes a wall around it Ccandida. The central protoplasm with denser consistency surrounded by periplasm is called the oosphere or the egg.

Albugo – Wikipedia

It bears remnants of the connectives or disjunctor pads at both the ends. According to one view, the sporangial chains in Albugo are abstricted by percurrent proliferation. The parasite ultimately reaches the inflorescence region where it produces the oospores. As the second sporangium initial grows to ctcle normal size, it is also delimited by the formation of a basal septum as the first.

The liberated sporangia in turn can albhgo germinate directly with a germ tube or begin to produce biflagellate motile zoospores. Most of the original cytoplasm of the oogonium forms the central,rounded dense ooplasm. The oospore on maturity secretes a two to three layered wall Fig.

The continued growth and production of sporangia exerts a pressure upon the enveloping epidermis. The exospore is ruptured and the endospore comes out as a thin vesicle Fig. It becomes differentia into two distinct regions with the rearrangement of the numerous nuclei and other cellular organellers. White rust pathogens create chlorotic yellowed lesions and sometimes galls on the upper leaf surface and there are corresponding white blister-like dispersal pustules of sporangia on the underside of the leaf.

Biology, Ecology and Management. Each of these metamorhoses into a biflagellate zoosore. 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. Host species include most if not all plants in the Brassicaceae family, common agricultural weeds, and those specified below.


As the oogonium reaches towards the maturity the contents of the oogonium get organised into an outer peripheral region of periplasm and the inner dense central region of ooplasm or oosphere or the egg Fig. This causes the leaf surface to bulge. Thereafter the fertilisation tube collapes but persists and the coenocentrum vanishes.

Further development of oospore if marked by the deposition of 4 layers, two on the outer and two on the inner side of the first original layer of the young oospore.

They held that Albugo and other Oomycetes, as a whole, are haploid. After landing on a susceptible plant, each sporangium gives rise to about six zoospores which, under suitable conditions of moisture and light, form germ tubes which invade the plant’s tissues.

It is spherical and multinucleate containing as many as 65 to nuclei. The endoplasmic reticulum becomes accumulated in the peripheral cytoplasm. White Rust of Crucifers:
