BGS 713, Reaction to Pyrenophora teres 6, Rpt6

BGN  43:210
Stock number: BGS 713
Locus name: Reaction to Pyrenophora teres 6
Locus symbol: Rpt6

Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:



Monofactorial dominant (1).
Located in chromosome 5HL (1), Rpt6.g is located within 1.5 cM of microsatellite marker HVLUE, which located in the proximal region of the long arm (1).


The seedling reactions of CIho 9819 to Pyrenophora teres f. maculata (Ptm) isolates ranged from 2 to 6 on a scale where 1 = very resistant and 10 = very susceptible (1). The Rpt6.g gene of CIho 9819 from Ethiopia confers isolate specific resistance to Ptm (1). CIho 9819 was resistant to two Ptm isolates from Finland, but not to the isolate from the Czech Republic (1). A QTL for adult plant resistance to Ptm from Galleon and VB 9104 was mapped in the short arm of 5H (2), and is probably independent of the Rpt6 locus.
