The stem rust resistance gene Rpg5 encodes a protein with nucleotide-binding-site, leucine-rich, and protein kinase domains
We isolated the barley stem rust resistance genes Rpg5 and rpg4 by map-based cloning. These genes are colocalized on a 70-kb genomic region that was delimited by recombination. The Rpg5 gene consistsExpand

Genetic and physical mapping of a high recombination region on chromosome 7H(1) in barley
Approaches utilizing microlinearity between related species allow for the identification of syntenous regions and orthologous genes. Within the barley Chromosome 7H(1) is a region of highExpand

Allele sequencing of the barley stem rust resistance gene Rpg1 identifies regions relevant to disease resistance.
The stem rust resistance gene Rpg1 has protected North American barley cultivars from significant yield losses for over 65 years. The remarkable durability of this gene warrants further study as toExpand

Concerted action of two avirulent spore effectors activates Reaction to Puccinia graminis 1 (Rpg1)-mediated cereal stem rust resistance
The barley stem rust resistance gene Reaction to Puccinia graminis 1 (Rpg1), encoding a receptor-like kinase, confers durable resistance to the stem rust pathogen Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici.Expand

Stem rust spores elicit rapid RPG1 phosphorylation.
Stem rust threatens cereal production worldwide. Understanding the mechanism by which durable resistance genes, such as Rpg1, function is critical. We show that the RPG1 protein is phosphorylatedExpand

A synteny map and disease resistance gene comparison between barley and the model monocot Brachypodium distachyon.
Grass species have coevolved with current economically important crop pathogens over millions of years. During this time, speciation of current domestic crops has occurred, resulting in related yetExpand

The barley serine/threonine kinase gene Rpg1 providing resistance to stem rust belongs to a gene family with five other members encoding kinase domains
The barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) stem rust (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici) resistance gene Rpg1 encodes a serine/threonine protein kinase with two tandem kinase domains. The Rpg1 gene family wasExpand

Transcriptome analysis of the barley nec3 mutant reveals a potential link with abiotic stress response related signaling pathways
The transcriptome of two fast neutron induced allelic barley mutants, FN362 and FN363, was analyzed with the Affymetrix Barley1 GeneChip microarray in order to characterize the necrotic leaf spot 3Expand

18th North American Barley Researchers Workshop and 4th Canadian Barley Symposium Poster Abstracts
The fermentable carbohydrates of the major Canadian malting barley varieties were monitored during malting and brewing processes. It was observed that the fermentable carbohydrate compositions of theExpand
