The shorter flagellum is of tinsel type and the longer one of whiplash type. Walker observed that after fertilization when a thick wall is being developed around the oospore, its diploid nucleus divides repeatedly to form 32 nuclei.

Disease resistance to oomycete pathogens has been a major target cgcle plant breeding programs, and also a focus of genetics research to reveal the molecular basis of major resistance genes for use in crops [ 5 – 7 ].

MHB directed the research. Interestingly the largest secreted gene family in A. This disparity between the assembled and estimated genome size could be due to un-resolved repetitive elements or arise from telomeric, centromeric and albuugo regions of the genome which would be inaccessible to these sequencing methods.

The oldest sporangia have none.

Oospore is the only diploid structure in the life cycle. It is rich in lipid vesicles and reserve vesicles containing electron dense inclusions reserve globules.

These searches identified putative tat-C orthologs in four oomycete genera Phytophthora, Alnugo, Hyaloperonospora and Saprolengia. Later the vacuoles disappear and the multinucleate protoplast undergo division.

Stevens suggested that Albugp possesses diploid somatic nuclei which undergo meiosis in the gametangia antheridia and oogonia. The regions of the shotgun genome assembly which correspond to these BACs show a very high level of sequence similarity with the genomic assembly. The contents then emerge in the form of one or two simple or branched germ tubes.


A series of eight additional candidate Ac-RXLs were tested for their ability to transiently induce necrosis when infiltrated into N. However, Sansome and Sansome have advanced evidence in support of gametangial meiosis and diploid life cycle in Albugo Candida.

This is very similar to the genome size of a necrotrophic oomycete Algugo ultimum 43 Mb but less than half that of H. Ancient class of translocated oomycete effectors targets the host nucleus. Candida attacks only the members of family Brassicaceae Cruciferae but not others. The zoospores are reniform kidney shaped and biflagellate. Further development of oospore if marked by the deposition of 4 layers, two on the outer and two on the inner albuugo of the first original layer of the young oospore.

Finally they settle down on the host, retract the flagella and round off.

The zoospores after cucle for sometime encyst and germinate by a germ tube which reinfects the host plant Fig. The fertilisation tube passes through the thin spot in the oogonial wall and enters the multinucleate periplasm. All nuclei are evenly distributed throughout the cytoplasm Fig. The hyphae grow around the palisade mesophyll cells with haustoria penetrating lite adjacent cells. An ancestral oomycete locus contains late blight avirulence gene Avr3a, encoding a protein that is recognized in the host cytoplasm.

We identified a series of additional tat-C orthologs in the genomes of other oomycetes Additional file 1: Necrosis and Ethylene inducing Peptides were not detected in the genome of A. The slightly crescent-shaped bulge of the haustorial mother cell known as haustorial initial albuho the host cell wall at the penetration site and protrudes into the lumen of the mesophyll cell to develop into a haustorium.

After the first Sc division the ooginial cystoplasm shows marked zonation C. Results A lifs genome analysis of the oomycete Hyaloperonospora arabidopsidis suggests that a reduction in the number of genes encoding secreted pathogenicity proteins, enzymes for assimilation of inorganic nitrogen and sulphur represent a genomic signature for the evolution of obligate biotrophy.



Albugo is a genus of plant-parasitic oomycetes. According to Hughes, besides cyxle in length of sporangiophores, this method of sporangium development is accompanied by marked lamination and thickening of the walls of the sporangiophores. The intercellular hyphae of this obligate parasite produce intracellular algugo in the mesophyll cells of the host Fig.

In the presence of moisture and low temperature, the sporangium functions as a zoosporangium B. In general, the A. The mature oospore thus has a thick highly differentiated 5-layered wall.

Once liife the host tissue the germ tube grows and forms the mycelium. This is followed by the formation of a slender tubular outgrowth from the antheridium.

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. EST mining and functional expression assays identify extracellular effector proteins from the plant pathogen Phytophthora.

According to one view, all the nuclei excepting one zlbugo extrude from the ooplasm and are deposited in the periplasm. On the onset of conditions favourable for growth, the oospore germinates. White rust is an obligate parasite. Genome sequence of the necrotrophic plant pathogen Pythium ultimum reveals original pathogenicity mechanisms and effector repertoire.
