BGS 711, Reaction to Pyrenophora teres 3, Rpt3

BGN  43:208
Stock number: BGS 711
Locus name: Reaction to Pyrenophora teres 3
Locus symbol: Rpt3

Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:

QTL for resistance to Pyrenophora teres f. teres seedling 2H = QRptts2 (5).
QTL for resistance to NFNB seedling Alexis/Sloop 2H = QNFNBSLR.Al/S-2H (7).


Monofactorial incomplete dominant (1); recessive resistance in CIho 9831 (6).
Located in chromosome 2HS (1, 6, 10); Rpt3 from CIho 9831 is linked to the vrs1 (six rowed spike 1) locus (6); a QTL is proximal from SSR marker HVM36 (7, 9); a QTL is near DArT marker bPb-4877 in 2H bin 04 (5).


The seedling reactions of cultivars with the Rpt3 gene for resistance to Pyrenophora teres f. teres (Ptt) isolates were often scored 1 on a scale where 0 = very resistant and 4 = susceptible (1). Heterozygous individuals showed intermediate reactions of 1 to 3 (1). A QTL for resistance to some Ptt isolates in Kaputar was mapped to chromosome 2H (2). QTL for resistance to Ptt in Franklin (10) and Sloop (7, 10) were mapped to chromosome 2HS. A minor effect QTL in 2HS was detected in CIho 9819 by Manninen et al. (9), but not by Bockelman et al. (1). Other QTL for Ptt resistance reported to be associated with chromosome 2H were summarized by Liu et al. (8).
