BGS 714, Reaction to Pyrenophora teres 7, Rpt7

BGN  43:211
Stock number: BGS 714
Locus name: Reaction to Pyrenophora teres 7
Locus symbol: Rpt7

Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:

QTL for resistance to Pyrenophora teres seedling 4H = Qrpts4 (4).
QTL for resistance to NFNB seedling Alexis/Sloop 4Ha = QNFNBAPR.Al/S-4Ha (2).
QTL for resistance to Pyrenophora teres 4H bins 5 to 7 = Rpt-4H-5-7 (8).


Monofactorial dominant (2, 4).
Located in chromosome 4HL (1, 2, 4, 5); Rpt7.h from Halcyon is near SSR markers Bmac906 and Bmac181 (4, 5); Rpt7.h from OUH602 is near SSR maker Bmag808 and Bmag353 (8); Rpt7.h from TR251 is between SSR marker HVM3 and DArT maker bPb-0098 in bin 06 (1); Rpt7.h from Sloop is near markers HVM3 and Bmag344 (2).


Halcyon exhibited a 3 seedling reaction to isolate NNB50 of Pyrenophora teres f. teres (Ptt) on a 1 to 10 scale (4), while the susceptible parent Sloop had a 9 reading (4). Steptoe had a reading of 4 while Morex had 8 on a 1 to 10 scale (7). TR251 had seedling responses to two Ptt isolates ranging from 2.0 to 2.8 on a 1 to 10 scale, but only with isolate WR858 was a QTL from TR251 detected in 4H (1), Based on adult plant reactions, Sloop was the resistant parent (readings 1 to 4 on a 0 to 9 scale) in the cross to Alexis (readings 6 to 8) (2). However, four other QTL for adult plant resistance were mapped in the Alexis/Sloop cross (2). The QTL for Ptt resistance reported to be associated with chromosome 4H were summarized by Liu et al. (3).

Origin of mutant:

Natural occurrence of in Halcyon (PI 531062, Warboys/Maris Otter) (4), possibly present in Steptoe (CIho 15229) (6, 7), and in TR251 (TR229//AC Oxbow/ND7556) (1). The adult plant resistance from Sloop (Norbert/Schooner) may be at a different locus in the same chromosomal region (2),

Mutational events:

Rpt7.h in Halcyon (PI 531062, Warboys/Maris Otter) (4, 5). Other possible alleles are present in Steptoe (CIho 15229, WA 3564/Unitan) (6, 7), Sloop (Norbert/Schooner) (2), TR251 (TR229//AC Oxbow/ND7556) (1), and OUH602 (Hordeum vulgare ssp. spontaneum) (8).

Mutant used for description and seed stocks:

Rpt7.h in Halcyon; Rpt7.h in Steptoe; Rpt7.h in TR251; adult plant resistance in Sloop (2),
