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 .

The oospore then germinates to release the zoospores by either of the two following methods: The continued growth and production of sporangia exerts a pressure upon the enveloping epidermis. At high temperature and under comparatively dry conditions the sporangium behaves like a conidium I. The contents of the oospore assume uniform granular appearance.

The new nuclei migrates from mycelium to cytoplasm and are used fycle the formation of another sporangium or conidium.

Probably the septum seen at the apex albjgo each younger sporangium thickens on both sides to form a connective between the successive sporangia in the chain. As the second sporangium initial grows to the normal size, it is also delimited by the formation of a basal septum as the first.

Reaching apbugo certain size it is delimited from the sporangiophore by a basal septum. Before fertilization a deeply staining mass of cytoplasm, Fig. It penetrates through receptive papilla, oogonial wall and periplasm and finally reaches upto the ooplasm Fig.


When the oomycete has successfully invaded the host plant, it grows and continues to reproduce.

Albugo – Wikipedia

Albuto pathogen can eliminate viable production of susceptible crops in specific fields indefinitely if infection is widespread over many years. The single layered cell wall of the young oospore encloses dense cytoplasm containing a group of reserve vesicles, lipid vesicles and a few membranous organelles.

The receptive papilla bulges G into the antheridium but soon disappears. The latter is then cut off by a cross wall from the rest of the male hypha B.

Tewari and Candifa investigated the fine structure and development of A. It is an obligate parasite distributed all over the world. The antheridium and oogonium are formed near each other on hyphal branches. While these organisms affect many types of plants, the destructive aspect of infection is limited to a few agricultural crops, including: Albugo candidaon Capsella bursa-pastoris.

When the mycelium has reached a certain stage of maturity it epidermis produces pads of hyphae at certain areas just below the epidermis. After landing on a susceptible plant, each sporangium gives rise to about six alubgo which, under suitable conditions of moisture and light, form germ tubes which invade the plant’s tissues.

After a long period of rest the oospore germinates. The swelling is multinucleate A Across wall appears below this inflation B. Further zoospores develop inside the vesicles. In other species it may have a network of ridges or other patterns.

The ooplasm is surrounded by the peripheral cytoplasm constituting the periplasm. However, the ooplasm at maturity has a single centrally located nucleus G. It contains several nuclei usuallybut only one is functional.

It divides to form five or eight polyhedral uninucleate daugher protoplasts. Thus along chain of sporangia or conidia is formed above each sporangiophore in basipetal succession. The antheridium attaches itself to the oogonial wall and at the point of contact a fertilization tube develops from the antheridium.

The parasite ultimately reaches the inflorescence region where it produces the oospores. White rust pathogens create chlorotic yellowed lesions and sometimes galls on the upper leaf surface liffe there are corresponding white blister-like dispersal pustules of sporangia on the underside of the leaf. It is surrounded by periplasm rich in vacuolate cytoplasm containing membranous organelles. The central protoplasm with denser consistency surrounded by periplasm is called the caandida or the egg.

The flagella are withdrawn. At the time of germination they behave in either of the following two ways depending on temperature conditions: Reproductive Structure of Albugo With Diagram.
