Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:

Male sterile 13 = ms13 (2).


Monofactorial recessive (1).
Located in chromosome 3HL (1); is associated with adjacent SNP markers 2_0063 to 2_1277 (positions 133.92 to 173.82 cM) in 3H bins 08 to 11 in a homozygous male sterile plant from Bowman backcross-derived line BW548 (1).


Selfing - none (2).
Outcrossing - complete female fertility (2).
Stamens - anthers smaller than those of fertile sibs, no stomium or filament elongation (4).
Pollen - no staining, shrunken, no normal-appearing grains (4).
