Stock number: BGS 406
Locus name: Eceriferum-l
Locus symbol: cer-l

Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:



Monofactorial recessive (3).
Located in chromosome 3HL possibly (1); cer-l.14 is associated with several groups of SNP markers in Bowman backcross-derived line, BW 116, the largest segment is from markers 1_0681 to 2_1362 (positions 247.13 to 255.13 cM) in 3H bins 15 to 16 of (1).


Surface wax coating on the spike is slightly reduced (wax code + ++ ++) (3). Identification of mutant plants is difficult in the Bowman backcrossed-derived progenies (2). Agronomic and morphological differences between the Bowman backcross-derived line for the cer-l.14 mutant, BW116, and Bowman were not observed (2).

Origin of mutant:

An X-ray induced mutant in Bonus (NGB 14657, PI 189763) (3).

Mutational events:

cer-l.14 (NGB 110898, GSHO 433) in Bonus (NGB 14657, PI 189763) (3, 4).

Mutant used for description and seed stocks:

cer-l.14 (NGB 110898, GSHO 433) in Bonus; cer-l.14 in Bowman (PI 483237)*3 (GSHO 2191); cer-l.14 in Bowman*4 (BW116, NGB 20522).
