Zhou 8425B, possessing the leaf rust resistance gene LrZH84, is an elite wheat (Triticum aestivum) parental line in the Yellow-Huai Valley region of China. In the present study, 2,086 F(2) plants derived from Zhou 8425B/Chinese Spring were used for fine mapping of LrZH84 with expressed sequence tag (EST) and sequence-tagged site (STS) markers. Seventy(More)
Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina, is one of the most widespread diseases in common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) globally. With the objective of identifying and mapping new genes for resistance to leaf rust, F1, F2 plants and F3 lines from a cross between resistant cultivar Bimai 16 and susceptible cultivar Thatcher were inoculated with Chinese(More)
Six QTL for adult plant resistance to leaf rust, including two QTL effective against additional diseases, were identified in a RIL population derived from a cross between Shanghai 3/Catbird and Naxos. Leaf rust is an important wheat disease and utilization of adult-plant resistance (APR) may be the best approach to achieve long-term protection from the(More)
A 4.20-kb SspI fragment from Bacillus thuringiensis G03 was cloned and sequenced. Sequencing analysis revealed two complete open reading frames (ORF; tzw1 and tzw2), and one incomplete ORF (tzw3) (GenBank accession no. EU293887). Tzw1 encodes a putative nonribosomal peptide synthetase with thiolation and condensation domains localized at the C-termini,(More)
A chromosome walking method was improved in this work. The new method was named as nonspecific primer anchored PCR (NPA-PCR). Nested gene specific primers were designed based on the known region and long random primer using degeneracy oligonucleotides for nonspecific anchoring. Annealing temperatures were varied to control the priming. Target sequences were(More)
Neijiang 977671 and 19 near-isogenic lines with known leaf rust resistance genes were inoculated with 12 pathotypes of Puccinia triticina for postulation of leaf rust resistance genes effective at the seedling stage. The reaction pattern of Neijiang 977671 differed from those of the lines with known leaf rust resistance genes used in the test, indicating(More)
Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina, is one of the most widespread diseases in common wheat globally. The Chinese wheat cultivar Zhoumai 22 is highly resistant to leaf rust at the seedling and adult stages. Seedlings of Zhoumai 22 and 36 lines with known leaf rust resistance genes were inoculated with 13 P. triticina races for gene postulation. The leaf(More)
Wang J., Shi L., Zhu L., Li X., Liu D. (2014): Genetic analysis and molecular mapping of leaf rust resistance genes in the wheat line 5R618. Czech J. Genet. Plant Breed., 50: 262–267. The wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) line 5R618, bred at the China Agricultural University, is resistant in the seedling stage to the majority of the current Chinese pathotypes of(More)
β-1,3-glucanases represent a group of pathogenesis-related proteins (PRs) that have been extensively reported to be involved in plant defense response towards fungal pathogens infection. However, it remains unknown how these genes are involved in wheat against leaf rust pathogen Puccinia triticina. Here, we present the cloning and expression analysis of a(More)
Leaf rust, caused by Puccinia triticina, is one of the major wheat diseases worldwide and poses a constant threat to common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production and food security. Results from the F2 and F2:3 populations derived from a cross between resistant line Fundulea 900 and susceptible cultivar Thatcher indicated that a single dominant gene,(More)
