Yield losses of up to 20 percent have been recorded in canola fields, and white rust is considered the most important foliar disease of Brassicaceae species in Australia.

Albugo derived from a Latin word means whitethe only genus of family Albuginaceae is represented by more than 25 species. The continued growth and production of sporangia exerts a pressure upon the enveloping epidermis. His interpretation was disputed by later workers. What structures in different plants favor self-pollination?

Life Cycle of Albugo (With Diagram) | Oomycetes

They are arranged in a closely packed palisade like layer forming a sorus between the epidermis and the mesophyll of the host leaf. A second sporangium is similarly formed from the tip just beneath the previous one Fig.

These zoospores then swim in a film of water to a suitable site and each one produces a germ tube – like that of the sporangium – that penetrates the stoma. Albug coming in contact with a suitable host. Host species include most if not all plants in the Brassicaceae family, common agricultural weeds, and those specified below. Sometime after all the nuclei of ooplasm migrate into the periplasm D and become arranged in a ring.

Prior to extrusion of the contents in the vesicle the nuclei undergo the mitotic division repeatedly and a large number of unnucleate bits of protoplast are produced. At this stage the oospore undergoes a long period of rest until unfavorable conditions are over. It contains numerous nuclei, oil globules and glycogen. They held that Albugo and other Oomycetes, as a whole, are haploid. The first formed sporangium is a aleuriosporangium. Favorable conditions for the dispersal and consequent infection of white rust from diseased to healthy plants are most common in the autumn and spring seasons.


Minimizing irrigation in cool and moist seasons as well as eliminating windbreaks to allow faster leaf drying can be beneficial. The hyphal end swells, becomes club-shaped and separates from rest of the mycelium by a septum. It is more vacuolate and spongy. It separates the terminal oogonium from the rest of the female hypha.

Khan did not notice any increase in length of the sporangiophore during sporangia formation nor did he observe any annellations on the sporangiophore surface. Of the two flagella one is of whiplash type and the other tinsel type Fig. The former is of tinsel type and the later whiplash. The dense cytoplasm within the oosphere contains one female nucleus in it and called the ooplasm. You must be logged in to post a comment.


Here’s how it works: Species of the Albuginaceae deform the branches and flower parts of many host species. This is a question and answer forum for students, teachers and general visitors for exchanging articles, apbugo and notes.

Retrieved 5 September It is rich in lipid vesicles and reserve vesicles containing electron dense inclusions reserve globules. The hyphae branch and ramify within the host attacking the tissues adjoining the point of infection. The zoospores are reniform kidney shaped and biflagellate. The outer layer is thick, warty or tuberculated and represents the exospore.

According to Khanthe sporangiophore wall towards its proximal end consists of two layers, the outer more cyfle and thicker than the inner layer.

On germination, they put out a short germ tube which enters the host through stomata Fig. In the lower fungi Phycomycetes Albugo is unique in that its lemon- shaped sporangia are produced in basipetal chains at the tips of clavate sporangiophores.

As the zoospores are differentiated, the papilla swells and opens.

It is surrounded by periplasm rich in vacuolate cytoplasm containing membranous organelles. When infection is recognized, systemically infected plant material including culled crops should be completely removed and destroyed. The first division is meiotic. They are then blown away in the air by wind or washed away by rain water. Once within the host cycld the germ tube grows and forms the mycelium.

The latter then continues to grow leaving the haustorium xlbugo a side branch. Thereafter the fertilisation tube collapes but persists and the coenocentrum vanishes.

Reaching a certain size it is delimited from the sporangiophore by a basal septum. The likelihood of germination and infection is considerably lower if temperatures deviate too far outside this optimum range. This is called as receptive papilla Fig.

The liberated sporangia in turn can either germinate directly with a germ tube llife begin to produce biflagellate motile zoospores. This is called coenocentrum. Thallus is eucarpic and mycelial. This page was last edited on 5 Septemberat In the beginning of the development of the oogonium there are many nuclei, which degenerate soon leaving one functional female nucleus.
