The electron microscopic observation of haustoria of Erysiphe graminis hordei

Abstract

The fine structure of haustoria ofErysiphe graminis hordei was studied using samples fixed with 3 per cent KMnO4 or 2 per cent OsO4. The cell wall of the infected leaves of barley seedlings was extremely electron-dense around the penetration point of this fungus. This may be due to chemical change of components in cell wall by the enzymatic action of the… (More)
