BGS 591, Reaction to Puccinia hordei 14 (barley leaf rust), Rph14

BGN  28:32
Stock number: BGS 591
Locus name: Reaction to Puccinia hordei 14 (barley leaf rust)
Locus symbol: Rph14

Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:



Monofactorial incomplete dominant (2, 3).
Location is unknown.


The seedling reaction to most isolates of Puccinia hordei ranges from chlorotic flecks to small lesions (2). Variability in seedling test conditions may alter the size and type of lesion observed. The seedling reaction of heterozygotes is frequently intermediate between that of resistant and susceptible seedlings (3).
