BGS 370, Male sterile genetic 15, msg15
Stock number: BGS 370
Locus name: Male sterile genetic 15
Locus symbol: msg15
Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:
Male sterile 15 = ms15 (2).
Monofactorial recessive (2).
Location is unknown.
Selfing - early tillers have 7.7% and late tillers have 46.2% at Bozeman, Montana, USA (2).
Outcrossing - complete female fertility (2).
Stamens - anthers smaller than fertile sibs (2).
The phenotype of msg15.cn plants differ from other male sterile genetic mutants because late tillers are fertile (2). Anthesis is delayed in relationship to spike emergence from the flag leaf (1). Only fully fertile plants were recovered from the attempt to develop a Bowman backcross-derived line for msg15.cn (1)..
Origin of mutant:
A spontaneous mutant in a selection from the cross Atlas/2*Kindred (CIho 13446) (2).
msg15.cn (MSS064, GSHO 1815) in Atlas/2*Kindred (CIho 13446) (2, 3).
Mutant used for description and seed stocks:
msg15.cn (GSHO 1815) in Atlas/2*Kindred.
