Algal diseases ALGAE are subject to various diseases of microbial aetiology, some of which are of economic importance in seaweeds cultivated for food etc. g. by sulphate-reducing bacteria [Book ref. 130, pp. 706–708]. Porphyra spp are subject to ‘red wasting disease’ (= red rot disease, Pythium red rot) caused by Pythium spp [Experientia (1979) 35 443–444], and to ‘green spot disease’ caused by localized infection with species of Pseudomonas or Vibrio. g. Petersenia palmariae infects Palmaria mollis [CJB (1985) 63 404–408, 409–418].

An akinete is typically larger than a vegetative cell; it has a thickened wall and granular cytoplasm rich in storage materials (cyanophycin, glycogen etc).

Allele (allelomorph) Any of one or more alternative forms of a given GENE; both (or all) alleles of a given gene are concerned with the same trait or characteristic, but the product or function coded for by a particular allele differs, qualitatively and/or quantitatively, from that coded for by other alleles of that gene. Three or more alleles of a given gene constitute an allelomorphic series. , the two alleles of a given gene) occupy corresponding positions (loci) on a pair of homologous chromosomes; if these alleles are genetically identical the cell or organism is said to be homozygous – if genetically different, heterozygous – with respect to the particular gene.
