Introgression of genetic resistance from primitive accessions of other cotton species offers the most promising opportunity to effectively control this pathogen in the long term.
Review: Rotylenchulus Species: Identification, Distribution, Host Ranges, and Crop Plant Resistance
The ten known species of Rotylenchulus are sedentary root parasites that occur largely in tropical and subtropical latitudes, and there are clear anatomical differences in the trophic site induced by R. macrodoratus (uninucleate giant cell) compared to those induced byR.
The future of nematode management in cotton.
Substantial progress is being made in the identification, characterization and mapping of loci for resistance to Meloidogyne incognita and Rotylenchulus reniformis, which will lead to efficient marker-assisted selection systems that will likely result in development and release of nematode-resistant cotton cultivars with superior yield potential and high fiber quality.
Effects of Soil Solarization on Rotylenchulus reniformis in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas.
Soil solarization was evaluated for control of Rotylenchulus reniformis in the lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas. In field experiments, solarization significantly reduced soil nematode population
Survey of Current Distribution of Rotylenchulus reniformis in the United States.
The reniform nematode, Rotylenchulus reniformis, has been reported from all Gulf Coast states, Arkansas, Hawaii, North Carolina, and South Carolina and is most widespread in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Georgia.
Cloning, characterization, and evolution of the NBS-LRR-encoding resistance gene analogue family in polyploid cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.).
Sequence analysis revealed that RGA are abundant and highly diverged in the cotton genome and could be categorized into 10 distinct subfam families based on the similarities of their nucleotide sequences, and gene index analysis showed that each of the subfamilies is at a different stage of RGA family evolution.
Linkage Mapping of Resistance to Reniform Nematode in Cotton following Introgression from Gossypium longicalyx (Hutch. & Lee)
The mapping of a gene for extreme resistance that was introgressed from the African species G. longicalyx is reported here on, to facilitate use of Ren lon in breeding, additional mapping, genomics, and prospective cloning.
Introgression of resistance to nematode Rotylenchulus reniformis into upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) from Gossypium longicalyx
The upcoming release of seed from this project is expected to provide the cotton industry with a major new tool for managing the reniform nematode in cotton, which costs U.S. producers about $100 million annually.
