chytridiomycota asexual reproduction

The video above right shows one of these sporangia containing active zoospores. Asexual reproduction in the Chytridiomycota is by the production of motile zoospores in sporangia that are delimited from the vegetative mycelium by complete septae. Basidiomycetes also include the smuts of grain crops (Figures 12(a) and 12(b)), and the root rots, wood rots, and decays of trees (Figures 12(c)–12(e)) and timber. An aquatic (freshwater) or semi-aquatic origin of Chytridiomycota seems likely, followed by the diversification of the major phyla of Fungi in terrestrial environments. Reproduced from Agrios GN (2005) Plant Pathology, 5th edn. For most members of Chytridiomycetes, sexual reproduction is not known. With the rising occurrence of harmful algal blooms (HABs) of phytoplankton worldwide, there is a growing need to investigate the factors affecting toxicity in algae, with a view to determining the significance of these factors in light of the current trends in global climate change. Reproduction of the fungi in this group is strictly asexual and occurs mostly by production of asexual conidiospores (see the figure below). James et al., (2006a) advanced understanding of the early evolution of fungi by the use of a six-gene phylogeny that enabled identification of the last common ancestor of crown group fungi. There are two hypotheses for the origin of the chytrid fungal disease outbreak. In some members, sexual reproduction is achieved through the fusion of isogametes. (2009), based on an inventory of fungal diversity in deep-sea hydrothermal environments, concluded that the emergence and initial diversification of Fungi occurred in a marine environment even if the data are not fully conclusive. Notice the variety and sequence of the spores and fruiting bodies, the secondary disease cycle at bottom center, and the need for two alternate hosts, wheat and barberry. container for zoospores) in which the cytoplasm cleaves and forms flagellated zoospores [40]. Histological section of infected epidermis in an adult Litoria caerulea frog. A stepwise evolution of the plant symbiotic ‘toolkit’ (i.e., the set of genes required for symbiosis) in algal ancestors, with several components predating the first land plants, has been recently proposed (Delaux et al., 2012, 2013). Burlington, MA: Elsevier/Academic Press, (a) p. 570, (b) p. 13, (c) p. 566. The Zygomycota, or conjugation fungi, include molds, such as those that invade breads and other food products. Any cell in the organism can bud. Molecular data shows that the oomycetes (fungus-like organisms no longer included in Fungi) have their evolutionary roots in the sea and that a number of predominantly marine taxa appear to diverge before the two main terrestrial lineages of oomycetes (Saprolegniales and Peronosporales; Figure 2; Beakes et al., 2012). The evolutionary record shows that the first recognizable chytrids appeared during the late pre-Cambrian period, more than 500 million years ago. Aphyllophorales, causing wood rots and decays (Figure 16). G.N. The hyphae of many species are haploid during the majority of their life cycles. The simplest chytrids form a very small network of rhizoids and produce only one zoosporangium per thallus. Unfortunately the ones in this sporangium failed to escape and finally slowed down. Basic reproductive features of fungi; Figure. C. Strullu-Derrien, in Encyclopedia of Evolutionary Biology, 2016. However, after a critical examination of the population structure of B. dendrobatidis, Morgan et al. The identifying characteristics of the Zygomycota are the formation of a zygospore during sexual reproduction and the lack of hyphal cell walls except in reproductive structures. The Chytridiomycota are commonly referred to as chytrids and differ from other Fungi in that they are the only members that have motile zoospore and gamete stages. This phylum encompasses at least seven orders. The nutrition is thought to be osmotrophic in all species. Asexual thin walled sporangia The thin-walled sporangia are elongate, grey, or colourless.

During asexual reproduction the zoospores will simply swim away in search of new pollen grains where they will attach and form new chytrids. A recent phylogenetically based and long-needed reclassification of the Clavicipitaceae (see Figure 5) has dramatically reworked the taxonomies of the teleomorphs – especially of Cordyceps – and split this large family into three smaller ones: Clavicipitaceae sensu stricto (primarily for plant-associated fungi, but also incorporating many significant entomopathogens in the teleomorphic genera Hypocrella, newly segregated Metacordyceps, and Torrubiella as well as the conidial genera Aschersonia, Metarhizium, Nomuraea, and some segregate genera formerly incorporated in Verticillium), Cordycipitaceae (including primarily entomopathogenic fungi including the newly restricted Cordyceps and part of the genus Torrubiella along with anamorphic fungi classified in Beauveria, Isaria, Lecanicillium, which was, in turn, the largest and most important genus recently segregated from Verticillium), and the Ophiocordycipitaceae (including two more segregates from Cordyceps – Ophiocordyceps and Elaphocordyceps – and a large number of entomogenous conidial genera in comparatively smaller and less well-known genera such as some most species of Hirsutella, Hymenostilbe, Tolypocladium, of the other fungi now segregated from Verticillium and Paecilomyces after their phylogenetic reclassifications). As a result the authors considered that early terrestrial fungi might have evolved in semi-aquatic microbial slime, with the ancestors of the Zygomyceta tracking arthropods or other animals onto land, while the ancestors of the Dikarya followed plants. One of the hallmark characteristics of Rhizopus and many other zygomycetes is the structure and composition of their cell wall. Several lines of evidence point to this hypothesis: The phylogeny by James et al. The morphological and molecular characteristics of the four phyla of zoosporic true fungi have been reviewed thoroughly by James et al. Phylum: Chytridiomycota – have round or limited elongated nonseptate mycelium, restricted to the host plant, and, alone among the fungi, produce motile zoospores and survive as sporangia. The fast track methodological approach, used in the current study to elucidate the CAZy enzyme profiles (Cantarel et al., 2009) builds on a combined use of the non-alignment based HotPep (Homology-to-Peptides) sequence analysis program (Busk et al., 2017) and a dbCAN analysis (Huang et al., 2018; Yin et al., 2012). Chytridiomycota are coenocytic with no distinction between individual cells. The basis for such analysis is the well-curated CAZy database, which groups enzymes into enzyme families (and subfamilies). The chemotactic uniflagellate zoospore is the usual vehicle for dispersal in all species in the Chytridiomycota. In addition, Rhizopus species are able to degrade cellulose, albeit at a slower rate than the more specialized brown-rot fungi. The only class in the Phylum Chytridiomycota is the Chytridiomycetes. The new classification scheme rejects the previous taxa of Discomycetes – apothecial fungi, Pyrenomycetes – perithecial fungi, Plectomycetes – cleistothecial fungi, and Loculoascomycetes – ascostromatal fungi. However the composition of this phylum has changed significantly since 1960 with the addition of many new species (Barr, 2001; Shearer et al., 2007; Powell and Letcher, 2014). The kingdom Fungi contains five major phyla, which were established according to their mode of sexual reproduction or use of molecular data. Similar to Chytridiomycota, members of Blastocladiomycota produce asexual zoospores to colonize new substrates. An older classification scheme grouped fungi that strictly use asexual reproduction into Deuteromycota, a group that is no longer in use. Introduction. The division Oomycota, unlike the Chytridiomycota, is a group of aquatic fungi that have cell walls composed of cellulose and a diploid dominant lifecycle (=gametic lifecycle). Multiple Bd isolates from various amphibian species have been brought into pure culture [39]. The flagellate cell possesses a centriole, nine flagellar props and a microbody-lipid globule complex. Note homogenous immature stage (I), larger multinucleate stages, zoosporangium with discharge tube (D) containing zoospores, and empty zoosporangium after zoospores have discharged (arrow). Formally described in 1999, the disease has been implicated in the extinction or … [55]. An investigation of the genome of diverse Fungi from marine environments could help to make more precise phylogenetic hypotheses and answer the question of marine ancestry. Dorcas P. O’Rourke DVM, MS, DACLAM, Matthew D. Rosenbaum DVM, MS, DACLAM, in Laboratory Animal Medicine (Third Edition), 2015. Species with sexual reproduction show zygotic meiosis. Table 1. For most members of Chytridiomycota, asexual reproduction occurs through the release of these zoospores derived through mitosis. By 2014 the Phylum Chytridiomycota (sensu Barr) had been subdivided into several new phyla (James et al., 2014; Letcher and Powell, 2014). Orders and genera in the phylum Chytridiomycota are classified by ultrastructural morphology of the zoospore, especially the flagellar apparatus [37] and molecular characters [38]. The evolutionary phylogeny of the oomycete “fungi”. Tilletia, causing covered smut (Figure 15(b)) or bunt of wheat, and Karnal bunt of wheat. Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis was originally isolated from, and named for, a blue poison dart frog (Dendrobates azureus) [6]. Furthermore, the cell wall protects against noxious compounds, but allows uptake of nutrients and excretion of waste products as well as enzymes for digestion of large nutrient molecules before uptake. They retained the phylum Chytridiomycota and proposed a new phylum, Neocallimastigomycota. The chytrids are the simplest and most primitive Eumycota, or true fungi. When the zoospores are released they swim around to find more material to colonize. Stained with hematoxylin and eosin. Athelia (Sclerotium) and Thanatephorus (Rizoctonia), causing root and stem rots of vegetables and fleshy ornamentals and soft rots of fleshy leaves and fruits. It is estimated that there are approximately 1000 species of chytrids. (b) Strawberries rotted by the fungus Rhizopus. Division: Chytridiomycota. There is only one class in the Phylum Chytridiomycota, the Chytridiomycetes. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. A discharge tube forms and at maturity the plug dissolves and the zoospores are released into the external environment to continue the life cycle [6,40] (Fig. Asexual reproduction occurs through the release of zoospores (presumably) derived through mitosis. In the case of monosaccharide and disaccharide utilization, a distinctive evolutionary adaptation and specialization is evident. This is the only chytrid fungus known to infect vertebrates and the host list is increasing. Bd has two main life stages. Different from that of James et al. Ends in 01d 20h 33m 09s. Chytridiomycota: The Chytrids . Research on the origin of the genes acting in the fungal symbiotic pathway (arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis involving Glomeromycota) also focuses on algal lineages, such as charophytes, that are related to land plants. The confirmation that Microsporidia are highly derived fungi rather than extremely primitive eukaryotes represents a huge status change for these organisms that is old news to microsporidiologists (and also to many mycologists) but is still a seismic surprise to those who are unfamiliar with the diverse data supporting this reclassification. Vegetative stage is haploid. Note, many species can produce asexual spores by mitosis in specialized spore-producing structures. Chytridiomycota Asexual reproduction zoospores in sporangia autospores in sporangia fragmentation- polycentrics and resting spores Some resting spores (resting sporangia) my arise asexually. Using expansion of pectinase genes and the phylogeny of the organism, Chang et al. Subsequent losses of motile spores, which occurred at least four times, parallel the evolution of new mechanisms of spore dispersal, such as aerial dispersal in mycelial groups (e.g., Ascomycota and Basidiomycota) and eversion of the polar tube (an extrusion apparatus that evaginates during spore .discharge) in the Microsporidia. Reproduced from Agrios GN (2005) Plant Pathology, 5th edn. Modern molecular phylogenetic classification supports this scheme and indicates that the phylum Zygomycota was the first fungi living on land after diverging from waterborne fungal phylum Chytridiomycota ∼500 million years ago. The chytrids are the only group of true fungi to have some cells with flagellae. The bar corresponds to 50 μm. 1). Though there is no known B. dendrobatidis sexual cycle; evidence of recombination suggested the possibility of cryptic sex. Four phyla (the Basidiomycota, Ascomycota, Mucoromycota and Zoopagomycota) produce only walled spores and are not considered to be zoosporic true fungi. The paper by Chang et al., (2015) marked a breakthrough with regard to including enzymes in descriptions of classification and evolution of the early lineage fungi. James et al., (2006b) described Blastocladiomycota as a new phylum. There are only about 900 species. This study reported an unexpected diversity in three phyla (, Interactions between Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis and its amphibian hosts: a review of pathogenesis and immunity, Potential roles for recently discovered chytrid parasites in the dynamics of harmful algal blooms, Frank H. Gleason, ... Floris F. van Ogtrop, in, What has happened to the “aquatic phycomycetes” (sensu Sparrow)? There is no conclusive evidence for phagotrophic nutrition even though some zoospores can be amoeboid (Gleason and Lilje, 2009). A follow-up study by James et al. Frank H. Gleason, ... Floris F. van Ogtrop, in Fungal Biology Reviews, 2015. 1. Balansia, Adkinsonella: endophytic on grasses and sedges apple (Figure 7(c)). The aim of this study was to elucidate the enzyme secretome composition of zoosporic early lineage fungi, across all phyla (James et al., 2006b; Kämper et al., 2006; Powell and Letcher, 2014); to contribute to resolving the basal part of the fungal tree of life, and to pave the way for industrial use of their unique enzymes by developing methods for cloning, expression and protein characterization of enzymes from such fungi. First described in 1999, a member of the phylum Chytridiomycota, B. dendrobatidis is an aquatic fungus which infects the skin of amphibians and has been implicated in the decline and extinction of about 200 species (Berger et al., 1998; Longcore et al., 1999; Skerratt et al., 2007). Such advanced studies were taken further by the work of the Spatafora and Berbee research groups (Berbee et al., 2017; Spatafora et al., 2016). The Phylum Chytridiomycota (chytrids) is one of the five true phyla of fungi. (2012) took an environmental DNA approach for phylogenetic analyses. The maturing thallus develops into a zoosporangium (i.e. This is reflected by the substrates, which the fungi seem best adapted to utilize (i.e., more easily degradable substances such as starch, pectin, and hemicelluloses). Fragmentation. However, humans rarely encounter most species. Sexual reproduction starts with the development of special hyphae from either one of two types of mating strains. Division: Oomycota The division Oomycota, unlike the Chytridiomycota, is a group of aquatic fungi that have cell walls composed of cellulose and a diploid dominant lifecycle (=gametic lifecycle).The mycelium is coenocytic and produce septa only to separate the reproductive structures from the assimilative portion of the thallus. (a) Rhizopus spp. Log in Sign up. This recent phylogenetic reshuffle of the fungi has separated the posteriorly uniflagellate water molds into two phyla (Chytridiomycota and Blastocladiomycota), and fragmented the long-familiar Zygomycota into the Glomeromycota (for arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi) and four other groups recognized at the subphylum level (Entomophthoromycotina, Mucormycotina, Kickxellomycotina, and Zoopagomycotina), which may eventually each be recognized as separate new phyla or grouped in some manner yet undetermined, but these changes involve relatively few fungal entomopathogen. However, Ruggiero et al., (2015) grouped all zoosporic fungi into one phylum, and ranked the anaerobic rumen fungi only as a class. (2009) and consistent with growing evidence demonstrating differences in virulence levels among B. dendrobatidis strains (Fisher et al., 2009), another study implicated cryptic sex in the evolution of virulence and outbreak origin (Farrer et al., 2011). Asexual reproduction is frequent and involves the production of conidiophores that release haploid conidiospores. (2007), Lepelletier et al. An emerging infectious disease of amphibians is Batrachochytrium dendrobates (Bd), a keratinophilic fungus in the phylum Chytridiomycota discovered in the late 1990s. The “male” strain produces an antheridium (plural: antheridia) and the “female” strain develops an ascogonium (plural: ascogonia). Reproduced from Agrios GN (2005) Plant Pathology, 5th edn. This recent phylogenetic reshuffle of the fungi has separated the posteriorly uniflagellate water molds into two phyla (, Encyclopedia of Food Microbiology (Second Edition), Fungal Evolution: Aquatic–Terrestrial Transitions, , based on an inventory of fungal diversity in deep-sea hydrothermal environments, concluded that the emergence and initial diversification of Fungi occurred in a marine environment even if the data are not fully conclusive. This has been reflected by modern genomics and proteomics, where comparatively few cellulases have been identified from Rhizopus species. Four phyla (the Basidiomycota, Ascomycota, Mucoromycota and Zoopagomycota) produce only walled spores and are not considered to be zoosporic true fungi. Ustilago, causing corn smut and loose smut of grains (Figure 15(a)). Figure 1. Thus, the diploid zoospore functions as a means of asexual reproduction, and as long as the environment remains favorable for the sporothallus, the zoospores will continue to reproduce in this fashion. In the current study, we focus on the molecular, functional and structural diversity of enzymes from early lineage fungi as key characteristics for their biology, ecology and evolution. (2015), appear similar to the morphological sequence in Fungi. Inoperculate Discharge 1% Toluidine Blue. The confirmation that Microsporidia are highly derived fungi rather than extremely primitive eukaryotes represents a huge status change for these organisms that is old news to microsporidiologists (and also to many mycologists) but is still a seismic surprise to those who are unfamiliar with the diverse data supporting this reclassification. We outline key areas in phytoplankton host–parasite dynamics that are poorly understood, discuss the potential roles of chytrids in these areas, and highlight future research directions for the furthering of our knowledge regarding algal ecophysiology. The synthesis of current knowledge in these fields will help researchers develop new hypotheses to further our understanding of primary production in aquatic ecology, and thus enhance our understanding of aquatic ecology, for more effective management of aquatic ecosystems.
