BGN  45:162
Stock number: BGS 383
Locus name: Male sterile genetic 22
Locus symbol: msg22

Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:

Male sterile e = msg,,e (5, 6).
Male sterile 22 = ms22 (2, 5).


Monofactorial recessive (5).
Located in chromosome 7H (5)); msg22.e is associated with SNP markers 1_1198 to 2_1275 (positions 73.70 to 104.73 cM) in 5H bins 04 to 06 in a homozygous male sterile plant from Bowman backcross-derived line BW557 (1).


Selfing - none (5).
Outcrossing - complete female fertility (5).
Stamens - anthers smaller than fertile sibs, no stomium or filament elongation (3).
