Yr60, a gene conferring moderate resistance to stripe rust in wheat
Stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici W., is a devastating disease of wheat worldwide. A new stripe rust resistance gene with moderate seedling and adult plant resistance was mapped using an F5 recombinant ...
Characterization of Yr54 and other genes associated with adult plant resistance to yellow rust and leaf rust in common wheat Quaiu 3
Leaf rust (LR) and yellow rust (YR), caused by Puccinia triticina and Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici, respectively, are important diseases of wheat. Quaiu 3, a common wheat line developed at the International Maize ...
Genetic analysis of slow-rusting resistance to leaf rust in durum wheat
Leaf rust (caused by Puccinia triticina Eriks.) is a widespread disease of wheat (Triticum spp.) that can be controlled effectively through the use of genetic resistance. Little is known about the slow-rusting type of ...
Identification and mapping of Lr3 and a linked leaf rust resistance gene in durum wheat
Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina Eriks., is an important disease of durum wheat (Triticum turgidum ssp. durum) worldwide and can be controlled through the use of genetic resistance. Two leaf rust resistance genes ...
Race non-specific resistance to rust diseases in CIMMYT spring wheats
Rust diseases continue to cause significant losses to wheat production worldwide. Although the life of effective race-specific resistance genes can be prolonged by using gene combinations, an alternative approach is to ...
Genetic analysis of resistance to leaf rust and yellow rust in spring wheat cultivar Kenya Kongoni
The Kenyan wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) ‘Kenya Kongoni’ exhibits high levels of adult plant resistance (APR) to leaf rust (LR) and yellow rust (YR). We determined the genomic regions associated with LR and YR resistance ...
Lr68: a new gene conferring slow rusting resistance to leaf rust in wheat
The common wheat cultivar Parula possesses a high level of slow rusting, adult plant resistance (APR) to all three rust diseases of wheat. Previous mapping studies using an Avocet-YrA/Parula recombinant inbred line (RIL) ...
New slow-rusting leaf rust and stripe rust resistance genes Lr67 and Yr46 in wheat are pleiotropic or closely linked
The common wheat genotype -RL6077- was believed to carry the gene Lr34/Yr18 that confers slow-rusting adult plant resistance (APR) to leaf rust and stripe rust but located to a different chromosome through inter-chromosomal ...
