BGS 197, Necrotic leaf spot 34, nec34

BGN  43:104
Stock number: BGS 197
Locus name: Necrotic leaf spot 34
Locus symbol: nec34

Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:

Necrotic leaf spot k = nec.k (1).


Monofactorial recessive (1, 2).
Located in chromosome 4HS (1); nec34.k is associated with SNP markers 1_0738 to 1_0221 (positions 26.58 to 29.67 cM) in 4H bin 02 of the Bowman backcross-derived line BW625 (1), in 4H bin 02.


The original nec34.k variant in breeding line ND13917 (ND10278/ND11231) develops numerous small black flecks on the leaf blades, leaf sheathes, and awns (2). Plants of the Bowman backcross-derived line for nec34.k, BW625, were phenotypically similar to Bowman except for the necrotic flecks (2).
