Fusarium verticillioides (Sacc.) Nirenberg (synonym F. moniliforme Sheldon) (teleomorph: Gibberella moniliformis) and F. proliferatum (Matsushima) Nirenberg (teleomorph: G. intermedia) are fungal pathogens of maize (Zea mays L.) that cause ear rot and contaminate grain with fumonisins, mycotoxins that can harm animals and humans. The objective of this study was to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) for resistance to Fusarium ear rot and fumonisin contaminationintwomaizepopulations… Expand

Relationships of Resistance to Fusarium Ear Rot and Fumonisin Contamination with Agronomic Performance of Maize
TLDR
Examination of the relationship between disease resistance and agronomic utility in a maize population created by backcrossing the highly resistant donor line to the susceptible but commercially successful recurrent parent line indicates that QTL can contribute in opposite directions to the overall genetic correlations between traits and that some trait correlations arise in the absence of detectable QTL effects. Expand
Quantitative trait loci for Fusarium and Gibberella ear rot resistance in Argentinian maize germplasm
TLDR
QTLs for ear rot resistance in the same chromosome regions from sources of resistance growing in North America, Africa, Europe and China were effective for both Fusarium species and environments indicating that LP4637 is a source of broad resistance to Fusaria stable across environments. Expand
QTL mapping and candidate genes for resistance to Fusarium ear rot and fumonisin contamination in maize
TLDR
This study identified a set of QTLs and candidate genes that could accelerate breeding for resistance of maize lines showing reduced disease severity and low mycotoxin contamination determined by F. verticillioides. Expand
Relationships among resistances to fusarium and Aspergillus ear rots and contamination by fumonisin and aflatoxin in maize.
TLDR
The results suggest that at least some of the genes involved in resistance to ear rots and mycotoxin contamination are identical or genetically linked. Expand
Diallel Analysis of Resistance to Fusarium Ear Rot and Fumonisin Contamination in Maize
TLDR
The results suggest that the most effi cient way to improve Fusarium ear rot and fumonisin contamination resistances in hybrids is to evaluate and select among inbred lines before using resources to create and evaluate hybrids. Expand
Selection for Reduced Fusarium Ear Rot and Fumonisin Content in Advanced Backcross Maize Lines and Their Topcross Hybrids
TLDR
Backcross breeding of the more resistant but unadapted inbred GE440 for four generations to the susceptible but agronomi- cally elite commercial inbred FR1064 to determine which QTL demon- strated allele frequency shifts due to selection. Expand
Quantitative Trait Loci for Resistance to Stenocarpella maydis and Fusarium graminearum Cob Rots in Tropical Maize
TLDR
There is need to utilize the maize genomic map to identify and test several markers, < 5 cM, near the detected QTL, in order to locate more reliable molecular markers for utilization in MAS. Expand
Genetics of resistance to ear diseases and mycotoxin accumulation in the pathosystems maize/Fusarium and wheat/Fusarium
TLDR
Despite significant genotypic differences among the inbred lines after inoculation or natural infections, inoculation was found to be superior due to easier visual differentiation and increased accuracy and the necessity of separate testing of FV and FG. Expand
Multi-environment Evaluation of Maize Inbred Lines for Resistance to Fusarium Ear Rot and Fumonisins.
TLDR
Genotype main effect and genotype × environment biplots showed that inbred lines CML 390, US 2540W, and RO 424W were most resistant to FER, fungal colonization, and fumonisin accumulation, respectively, while inbred lineRO 424W was most stable in its resistance response over environments. Expand
Diverse Components of Resistance to Fusarium verticillioides Infection and Fumonisin Contamination in Four Maize Recombinant Inbred Families
TLDR
Four recombinant inbred line families from the maize nested associated mapping population were grown and inoculated with F. verticillioides across four environments, and kernels for external and internal infection severity as well as FUM contamination were evaluated. Expand

Influence of Cry1Ab Protein and Hybrid Genotype on Fumonisin Contamination and Fusarium Ear Rot of Corn
TLDR
Results suggest that Bt hybrids can reduce fumonisin concentration in grain during seasons when ECB is favored, but notDuring seasons when CEW is favored. Expand
Sources of resistance to fumonisin accumulation in grain and fusarium ear and kernel rot of corn.
TLDR
Low fumonisin concentration in grain and low ear rot severity were associated with several of the F(1) hybrids and their distinct F(2), and backcross to FR1064 generations, suggesting that several dominant genes are involved in resistance and that alleles for resistance from these inbreds can be transferred to FR 1064.
