Unformatted text preview: 11/8/10 BTNY 301 Exam #3 Review Session Nov. 10, 2010 Basidiomycetes Viruses Plant Parasi3c Nematodes (Rusts, Smuts and Mushrooms) •  Sexual fruiFng organ is a basidium. May or may not be in a basidiocarp. •  Sexual spore is a basidiospore (1N); typically produce 4 per basidium Basidiomycetes RD Martyn, Purdue University 2 1 11/8/10 Basidiomycetes •  In the rust and smut fungi, the sexual spore is considered the teliospore because that is where karyogamy occurs (N+N 2N). The teliospore overwinters and then germinates to form a probasidium. Meiosis occurs (2N 1N) and 4 basidiospores (1N) are formed on the basidium. •  Basidiomycetes spend most of their life cycle in the dikaryoFc state (N + N) Basidiomycetes – Rust Fungi •  No basidiocarp, but they do have a basidium •  Complex life cycle with mulFple spore stages –  Macrocyclic (3 – 5 spore stages) –  Microcyclic (<3 spore stages) •  May require two hosts to complete life cycle –  Autoecious (one host) –  Heteroecious (two hosts) •  Alternate host (infected by basidiospores) •  Primary host (infected by aeciospores from alternate host if present; host on which the teliospore forms) RD Martyn, Purdue University 4 2 11/8/10 •  Obligate parasites •  Plasmogamy occurs between pycniospores and recepFve hyphae in the pycnidium Rust Fungi •  Karyogamy occurs in the developing teliospore •  Meiosis occurs in the germinaFng teliospore / probasidium. RD Martyn, Purdue University 5 Black stem rust of wheat (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tri-ci) •  Macrocyclic / heteroecious •  Five spore stages (IV, 0, I, II, III) IV  ­ Basidiospore (1N) 0  ­ Pycniospore (1N) I  ­ Aeciospore (N + N) II  ­ Urediospore (N + N) III  ­ Teliospore (2N) RD Martyn, Purdue University 6 3 11/8/10 Black stem rust of wheat (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tri-ci) –  Alternate host is barberry •  Infected by basidiospores  ­ IV (1N) •  Forms a pycnidium, pycnidiospores  ­ 0 (1N) and recepFve hyphae (Plasmogamy) •  Forms an aecium and aeciospores ­ I (N+N) RD Martyn, Purdue University 7 Black stem rust of wheat (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tri-ci) •  Primary host is wheat –  Infected by aeciospores –  Forms uredinia and urediniospores  ­ II (N+N) •  Urediniosproes are the repeaFng spore stage. Can reinfect wheat. –  Forms telia and teliospores  ­ III (2N) – Karyogamy •  Teliospores are the overseasoning spore –  Basidium forms from germinaFng teliospore. Produces basidiospores (1N)  ­ Meiosis RD Martyn, Purdue University 8 4 11/8/10 Black Stem Rust of Wheat (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici) Barberry (Berberis vulgaris) Alternate host (Barberry) Primary host (Wheat) RD Martyn, Purdue University 9 Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici – Strain Ug99 •  Identified in Uganda, 1999 •  Virulent on all wheat varieties grown around the world. •  Has spread to Middle East and likely reach India and Europe and eventually the U.S. •  Has potential to reduce yields by as much as 70% RD Martyn, Purdue University 10 5 11/8/10 Soybean Rust – Phakopsora pachyrhizi Rupe, J. and L.

DOI: 10.1094/PHI-I-2008-0401-01 http://www.apsnet.org/education/LessonsPlantPath/sbrust/default.htm •  Autoecious – microcyclic rust fungus •  Only has two spores stages – Urediniospores and Teliospores. •  Wide host range - alternative hosts. Not to be confused with ‘alternate hosts’. –  Many legume species –  Kudzu (Important as a overseasoning host in the South) RD Martyn, Purdue University 11 Rust Diseases •  Disease management –  Most rust diseases are best managed with resistant varieFes, when available; however, new races or strains of the fungus ocen evolve –  When economics allow, fungicides are used –  EradicaFon of alternate hosts may reduce the development of new strains –  ScouFng fields and/or senFnel plots RD Martyn, Purdue University 12 6 11/8/10 Basidiomycetes  ­ Smuts •  Typically produce only teliospores and basidiospores •  No basidiocarp (similar to rust fungi) •  Ocen afack the ovaries of cereal grains and kill the ovary and producing large amounts of inoculum or fungal Fssue RD Martyn, Purdue University 13 Mathre, D.E. 2000.
