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 .

Each protoplast metamorphoses into a naked, biflagellate, uninucleate, reniform and vacuolate zoospore. A germ tube emerges through the split. Besides, the periplasm is rich in nuclei, mitochondria endoplasmic reticulum and ribosomes. The septum is formed by the centripetal growth of the inner layer of the sporangiophore wall C.

However, it has also been reported on some members of family Asteraceae Composite, Convolvulaceae and Chenopodiaceae. The thick highly differentiated oospore wall together with the two surrounding additional layers contributes to the longevity of Albugo oospore.

On root crops, infected leaf removal either by mowing or plowing prior to harvest will limit the spread of the pathogen during harvest. They are then blown away in the air by wind or washed away by rain water. However, Vanterpool reported that oospore forms a short exit or germ tube which ends in a thin vesicle. Here’s how it works: Its formation is externally albkgo by hypertrophy. The pathogen is spread by wind, water, and insects.


It produces masses of zoosporangia on the cotyledons which serve as secondary inoculum in initiating systemic infection. It is warty or tuberculate. These are the sporangiophores or conidiophores. The end of the male hypha enlarges cadnida club-shaped swelling. This terminal dub-shaped cell is called an antheridium. According to Khanthe sporangiophore wall towards its proximal end consists of two layers, the outer more electron-dense and thicker than the inner layer.

The sporangia in the chain thus separate.

It carries a single male nucleus. A second sporangium is similarly formed from the tip just beneath the previous one Fig.

Which is firstly raised up but finally ruptured exposing the underlying sours containing white powdery dust of multinucleate sporangia or conidia Fig.

This is a question and answer forum for students, teachers and general visitors for exchanging articles, answers and notes.

Before fertilization a deeply staining mass of cytoplasm, Fig. The diploid nucleus undergoes repeated divisions to form many nuclei about or even more. Anybody ctcle ask a question Anybody can answer The best answers are voted up and rise to the top. Soon the encysted zoospore cyst puts out a germ tube E which enters the host tissue through a stoma. Each of the 17 specific races of the white rust pathogen affects different plants so monitoring is essential as much as possible to limit overuse and cost of fungicide treatments.


It is sometimes called a fungus, but in fact forms part of a distinct lineage of fungus-like microorganisms, Candlda, commonly known as water moulds.

The ooplasm is surrounded by the peripheral cytoplasm constituting the akbugo. Reproductive Structure of Albugo With Diagram.

Most of the original cytoplasm of the oogonium forms the central,rounded dense ooplasm. The second sporangium is xandida formed by proliferation of the sporangiophore with total involvement of the half of the fractured transverse septum exposed by the seceding first sporangium above it. At the point of contact of antheridium with the oogonium, the walls become very thin.

Albugo proliferates in wet and moist conditions so movement through infected fields should be limited after spore maturation in these conditions to limit spread.

Albugo is a genus of plant-parasitic oomycetes.
