In many species of Phytophthora and other oomycetes, motile biflagellate zoospores initiate plant infection. Within the zoospore cytoplasm, organelles, including three types of cortical vesicles, are distributed with a distinct polarity. Rapid exocytosis or migration of these vesicles during zoospore encystment indicates that the cortical vesicles may play important roles during early infection.
