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 . Albugo candida commonly known as white rust, is a species of oomycete in the family 1 Distribution; 2 Hosts; 3 Symptoms; 4 Life-cycle; 5 References; 6 Further This pathogen infects plants in the family Brassicaceae; the growth stages.

The sporangial wall increased 3-fold the thickness.

The slightly crescent-shaped bulge of the haustorial mother cell known as haustorial initial perforates the host cell wall at the penetration site and protrudes into the lumen of the mesophyll cell to develop into a haustorium.

The sexual reproduction is highly oogamous type.

Life Cycle of Albugo (With Diagram) | Oomycetes

In between each two sporangia a gelatinous pad develops acting as a separator of two sporangia from each other. The oospores are perennating bodies and survive in adverse conditions. Numerous uninucleate daughter protoplasts thus result. The separation discs are dissolved by water, and the sporangia are set free. 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. This mode of development of sporangia is termed per-current proliferation.


This papilla-like oogonial bulging is called the receptive papilla It is functionless. It is warty or tuberculate. Caneida are many different races and varieties of Alubgo. When the mycelium ages, some hyphae grow deep and lie buried in albuo intercellular spaces of the tissues of the stem, or petioles.

They are produced on the sporangiophores. The asexual reproduction takes place by conidia, condiosporangia or zoosporangia.

It undergoes zygotic meiosis. His interpretation was disputed by later workers. When infection is recognized, systemically infected plant material including culled crops should be completely removed and destroyed.

The zoospores are uninucleate, slightly concavo-convex and biflagellate. All nuclei are evenly distributed throughout the cytoplasm Fig. The mature oospore thus has a thick highly differentiated 5-layered wall.

Each oospore produces forty to sixty zoospores. There are two views with regard to this uninucleate condition of the mature ooplasm. Candida attacks only the members of family Brassicaceae Cruciferae but not others.

Retrieved from ” https: The antheridium is developed at the end of a male hypha lying close to the oogonium.

Khan did not notice any increase in length of the sporangiophore during sporangia formation nor did he observe any annellations on the sporangiophore surface. The fibrous product of dissolution of the middle layer is held in position by the pellicle which covers both the fo and the sporangiophore.


Controlling white rust is very difficult due to the nature of the ‘Albugo’ pathogen. The outer warty wall of oospore bursts and a thin membrane of sessile vesicle comes out of the oospore.

The inner layer is thin and culled the endospore. Canidda corroborated findings of Hughes on formation of sporangia by percurrent proliferation in Albugo. This page was last edited on 21 Novemberat The same number of functional male nuclei are discharged by the fertilization tube.

The disease caused by Albugo is commonly known as white rust because it appears in the form of shiny, white, smooth irregular patches pustules or blisters on the leaves, stems and other aerial parts of the plant. Albugo Species [1] Albugo candida Albugo capparidis Albugo capparis Albugo caryophyllacearum Albugo chardoni Albugo evolvuli Albugo gomphrenae Albugo canddia Albugo hohenheimia Albugo ipomoeae-panduratae Albugo laibachii Albugo leimonios Albugo lepidii Albugo lepigoni Albugo mauginii Albugo occidentalis Albugo resedae Albugo rorippae Albugo trianthemae Albugo tropica Albugo is a genus of plant-parasitic oomycetes.

This is followed by the formation of a slender tubular candiva from the antheridium. It is rich in lipid vesicles and cycoe vesicles containing electron dense inclusions reserve globules. Nitrogen Fixation in Plants.
