Biological Specialization or Physiological Specialization 6. 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. These hyphae produce, at right angles to the epidermis are short, thick walled, un-branched and club shaped. Oospore is the only diploid structure in the life cycle. Albugo is one of three genera currently described in the o Albuginaceaethe taxonomy of many species is still in flux.

This organism causes white rust or white blister diseases in above-ground plant tissues. The outer warty wall of oospore bursts and a thin membrane of sessile vesicle comes ot of the oospore. The two unequal flagella arise from a depression on the concave side. The outer is more electron dense than the inner.

When the mycelium ages, some hyphae grow deep and lie buried in the intercellular aalbugo of the tissues of the stem, or petioles. The formation of the first functional haustorium is the critical step in primary infection.

Albugo – Wikipedia

On coming in cyclee with a suitable host. F end and results in the formation of first sporangium. The number of functional eggs in ooplasm is many.


Common OMRI fungicides include sulphurcopper oxiderosemary oiland azadirachtin products. The encysted zoospore cyst then germinates. Albugo proliferates in wet and moist conditions so movement through infected fields cyycle be limited after spore maturation in these conditions to limit spread. The thick highly differentiated oospore wall together with the two surrounding additional layers contributes to the longevity of Albugo oospore.

In this article we will discuss about the life cycle of albugo with the help albguo suitable diagrams. In this article we will discuss about Albugo. It is elongated and club shaped structure. With light microscope the haustorium is seen as a small, spherical structure consisting of two parts namely: External to the oospore wall are the two addition protective investments formed by the persistent periplasm and the oogonial wall.

When the oomycete has successfully invaded the host plant, it grows and continues to reproduce. The released albhgo swim about in water for a while E. The chains of sporangia lengthen and press on the epidermis above. Ultimately the male nucleus fuses with the female nucleus karyogamy.

A portion of the contents of the oogonium surrounded by a thin membrane grows into a papilla-like outgrowth G. The conidial method of germination of sporangia in Albugo is, however, not common.

The outer layer is thick, or or tuberculated and represents the exospore. The lower two-third portion of sporangiophore is narrow, thick-walled, with a undulating surface whereas the upper one-third is broader, thin-walled with a smoother surface.

The second sporangium is thus 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. A few vacuoles appear in its granular cytoplasm.


The fibrous product of dissolution of the middle layer is held in position by the pellicle which covers both the sporangia and the sporangiophore.

Any susceptible plants or weeds should be mowed or eliminated to reduce spread. 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. They are terminal in position, however, intercalary oogonia also occur, though rarely.

In other species it may have a network of ridges or other patterns. Peronosporales Water mould genera. This is why identification of specific hosts crops and possible weeds is necessary to determine range and location of control methods. This is a question and answer forum for students, teachers and general visitors for exchanging articles, answers and notes. Answer Now and help lie. The thick oospore wall then cracks. Albugo is a genus of plant-parasitic oomycetes.

Stevens suggested that Albugo possesses diploid somatic nuclei which undergo meiosis in the gametangia antheridia and oogonia. They divide in such a manner that one pole of each spindle is in ooplasm and the other albugoo the periplasm Fig. The oospore contains apbugo large diploid 2n nucleus. It is well developed and consists of branched, aseptate, coenocytic hyphae.
