The taxonomy of this genus is incomplete, but several species are plant pathogens. In this article we will discuss about Albugo.

Albugo candidaon Capsella bursa-pastoris. The sexual reproduction is oogamous. Oospore is the only diploid structure in the life cycle.

The haustorial stalk passes through the penetration site to connect the haustorial body to the hyphal wall in the intercellular space between the mesophyll cell. The continued growth and production of sporangia exerts a pressure upon the enveloping epidermis.

It penetrates through receptive papilla, oogonial wall and periplasm and finally reaches upto the ooplasm Fig. The rest of the nuclei disintegrate before fertilization. Albugo can, however, be distinguished from Peronospora by the smaller diameter of its hyphae and more numerous, vesicular haustoria Fig.

Under suitable conditions the mycelium grows and branches rapidly. Electron micrographs reveal the presence of mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum and ribosomes. In the presence of moisture and low temperature, the sporangium functions as a zoosporangium B. Albugo is one of three genera currently described in the family Albuginaceaethe taxonomy of many species is still in flux.

According to them, the young oospore is delimited from the vacuolate periplasm by an electron-dense cell wall. It has also been observed that A. The oospore alongwith the fusion nucleus is called oospore Fig. The overlying epidermis eventually bursts over the growing sporangial sorus and exposes the white shining pustules consisting of masses of sporangia.

Both conventional and organic fungicides are available and could be used to limit spread and yield losses during the spring, early summer and fall on crops and susceptible neighboring cycl. Once within the host tissue the germ tube grows and forms the mycelium. The sporangiophores contain dense cytoplasm and about a dozen nuclei.

Seventeen races of white rust have been identified worldwide, each with a high level of host specificity. When the sporangia are formed in abundance on innumerable sporangiophores, the pressure is caused; the host epidermis ruptures and hundreds of sporangia are seen on the surface of the host in the form of white creamy powder forming pustules.

The first mitotic division takes place before the organization of the periplasm and oosplasm Fig.

The zoospores are reniform kidney shaped and biflagellate. It then dips deep into the ooplasm. The thick oospore wall then cracks. However, Vanterpool reported that lifs forms a short exit or germ tube which ends in a thin vesicle. White rust is an important economic disease, causing severe crop losses if not controlled.


A nearly complete septum has a narrow central canal and consists of three layers, upper and lower electron dense and the thick middle one of less electron density D.

The reduction division meiosis is not yet seen in Albugo Candida but it has been observed in the other species of Albugo. The sporangium bursts anteriorly and the zoospores liberate in the film of water.

The sex organs arise on separate hyphae called the male and the female hyphae A. Thus along chain of sporangia or conidia is formed above each sporangiophore in basipetal succession. The germ tube penetrates the host through a pife or, through an injury in the epidermis.

A small zlbugo of cytoplasm gathers around each nucleus.

The zoospores cyclr out into the thin vesicle which soon perishes to liberate the zoospores. Albugo is a genus of plant-parasitic oomycetes. The number of functional eggs in ooplasm is many. Here’s how it works: His interpretation was disputed by later workers. Septa remain suppressed in the actively growing hyphae but appear to separate reproductive structures and to seal off injured parts. Reproductive Structure of Albugo With Diagram.
