BGS 465, Male sterile genetic 28, msg28

BGN  45:175
Stock number: BGS 465
Locus name: Male sterile genetic 28
Locus symbol: msg28

Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:

Male sterile as = msg,,as (3).


Monofactorial recessive (3, 6).
Located in chromosome 2HS (1); is associated with SNP markers 2_1015 to 2_0864 (positions 48.68 to 55.52 cM) in 2HS bin 05 of a plant presumed to be a heterozygous plant from the Bowman backcross-derived line BW563 (1). The was previously mapped in chromosome 6 near the rob1 (orange lemma 1) locus (2).


Selfing - none (3).
Outcrossing - complete female fertility (3, 6).
Stamens - anthers rudimentary, with no stomium or filament elongation (6).
Pollen - non-staining, shrunken, and no normal-appearing grains (6).
Cytology - normal meiosis (6).
