Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:

Male sterile genetic,,dr = msg,,dr (3).
Male sterile = 76Y17 (3).


Monofactorial recessive (2).
Located in chromosome 2HL (2); msg35.dr is about 23.0 cM from the wst7 (white streak 7) locus (2); msg35.dr is associated with SNP markers 1_1118 to 2_0715 (positions 180.85 to 213.08 cM) in 2H bins 11 to 13 in a homozygous male sterile plant from Bowman backcross-derived line BW571 (1).


Selfing - none (3).
Outcrossing - complete female fertility (3).
Stamens - anthers smaller than fertile sib, with no stomium of filament elongation (3).
