Ultrastructure and Development of Anthracoidea Elynae Ustilospores
AbstractThe aim of the study was to examine the ultrastructure of Anthracoidea elynae ustilospores isolated from Kobresia myosuroides (Vill.) Fiori plant ovaries, harvested in the Bucegi Mountains, Romania. Samples examination was performed using scanning (SEM) and transmission (TEM) electron microscopy. The results showed that A. elynae ustilospores had a dynamic ultrastructure, because their three-layered cell wall, nucleus shape, lipid and glycogen accumulations in the cytoplasm changed at each developmental stage. In conclusion, according to the ultrastructural changes, A. elynae ustilospores development may be divided into three stages.
