Resistance to Fusarium ear rot [caused by Fusarium verticillioides (Sacc.) Nirenberg (synonym F. moniliforme Sheldon) (teleomorph: Gibberella moniliformis) and F. proliferatum (Matsushima) Nirenberg (teleomorph: G. intermedia)] and fumonisin contamination is heritable and controlled by at least 11 gene regions in a maize (Zea mays L.) population created by backcrossing the highly resistant donor line, GE440, to the susceptible but commercially successful recurrent parent line, FR1064.

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
Evaluation of ear rot (Fusarium verticillioides) resistance and fumonisin accumulation in Italian maize inbred lines.
TLDR
There is a strong association of visible Fusarium symptoms with fumonisin concentration, suggesting that selection in maize for reduced visible moulds should reduce the risk of mycotoxin contamination. Expand
GRAIN YIELD AND FUSARIUM EAR ROT OF MAIZE HYBRIDS DEVELOPED FROM LINES WITH VARYING LEVELS OF RESISTANCE
TLDR
The hypothesis that inbred lines with greater resist- ance to fumonisin contamination would produce hybrids with greater ear rot resistance and greater resistance to yield loss under artificial inoculation with Fusarium spp. Expand
Variation and covariation for Gibberella ear rot resistance and agronomic traits in testcrosses of doubled haploid maize lines
TLDR
Genotypic correlations between LP and TP were low and resistance QTL for LP had no significant effects on TP, suggesting to allocate resources mostly to the evaluation of testcrosses and RE for resistance was low, suggesting that selection for resistance and higher grain yield can be carried out simultaneously. Expand
Breeding for resistance to ear rots caused by Fusarium spp. in maize – a review
TLDR
As the severity of natural infections tends to correlate with the artificial inoculations results, the incorporation of artificial inoculation methods in breeding programmes is now the most important task. Expand
Resistance of Maize Hybrids to Fusarium graminearum, F. culmorum, and F. verticillioides Ear Rots with Toothpick and Silk Channel Inoculation, as Well as Their Toxin Production
TLDR
The ear rot and toxin tests displayed significant positive correlations, verifying the decisive role of resistance in toxin regulation, and the toothpick method gave more reliable results and a better differentiation of genotypes. Expand
Detection and verification of quantitative trait loci for resistance to Fusarium ear rot in maize
TLDR
The stable and significant resistance effect of the QTL on chromosome 4 lays the foundation for further marker-assisted selection and map-based cloning in maize. Expand
Genetic analysis of cob resistance to F. verticillioides: another step towards the protection of maize from ear rot
TLDR
The results lay a foundation for research on the resistance mechanisms of cob and provide resources for marker-assisted selection on maize resistance to Fusarium verticillioides cob rot. Expand
A META-ANALYSIS OF QTL ASSOCIATED WITH EAR ROT RESISTANCE IN MAIZE
TLDR
Meta-analysis indicated that QTL from different ER types and resistance sources were clustered on the same chromosome regions, particularly on bins 3.04 and 2.08, and among eight resistance sources, CO387 contributed 18 of 29 QTL. Expand

QTL Mapping for Fusarium Ear Rot and Fumonisin Contamination Resistance in Two Maize Populations
TLDR
QTL mapping was used to study the genetic relationships between resistances to ear rot and fumonisin contamination and to investigate consistency of QTL acrosspopulations to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) for resistance to Fusarium ear rot, and appeared consistent for both traits across both populations. 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. Expand
Infection and Fumonisin Production by Fusarium verticillioides in Developing Maize Kernels.
TLDR
Under years conducive for fumonisin contamination, early harvest (greater than 25% grain moisture) may help reduce the level of contamination. Expand
Erratum for ‘‘Heritabilities and Correlations of Fusarium Ear Rot Resistance and Fumonisin Contamination Resistance in Two Maize Populations’’
In volume 46, issue 1, p. 353–361, the estimates of heritability for fumonisin concentration and Fusarium ear rot in the NC3003 B104 recombinant inbred population were computed incorrectly. TheExpand
Genetic relationships between resistance to stalk-tunneling by the European corn borer and cell-wall components in maize population B73×B52
TLDR
It is suggested that while CWC contribute to ECB resistance in this population, other mechanisms and other genes also are involved, and several QTL contributing to the negative correlations between ECB tunneling and CWC in the leaf-sheaths mapped to similar positions as QTL detected in tropical maize populations for resistance to leaf-feeding by Diatraea grandiosella Dyar and DiatRAea saccharalis Fabricus.

Utility of SSRs for Determining Genetic Similarities an Relationships in Maize Using an Agarose Gel System
TLDR
The utility of polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based markers such as SSRs for measuring genetic diversity, for assigning lines to heterotic groups and for genetic fingerprinting equals or exceeds that of RFLP markers, a property that may prove a valuable asset for a maize breeding program. Expand
Differential fumonisin production in maize hybrids
TLDR
Over all locations, there were highly significant location and hybrid effects, and a significant hybrid × location interaction, which increased as latitude of the location decreased. Expand

TLDR
This bioassay was used as a monitoring system to isolate cancer-promoting compounds from cultures of F. moniliforme MRC 826 and induced the formation of GGT+ foci in the livers of initiated as well as noninitiated rats. Expand
