 en Identification of microsatellites linked to Lr47
Vanzetti1, Leonardo Sebastián; Brevis, Juan Carlos; Dubcovsky, Jorge & Helguera, Marcelo


Leaf rust resistance gene Lr47 is located within a interstitial segment of Triticum speltoides check for this species in other resources Taush. 7S chromosome translocated to the short arm of chromosome 7A of bread wheat. This gene is resistant against currently predominant races of leaf rust from Argentina. The objectives of this study were to identify microsatellites linked to this source of resistance as a potential tool to introgress this source of resistance. Isogenic lines with and without Lr47 developed from 10 cultivars/breeding lines as well as 10 microsatellites previously mapped in 7AS chromosome were used in this study. Microsatellite gwm 60 was the only marker that co-segregated completely linked to Lr47. These data indicate that gwm 60 could be a valuable marker to introgress Lr47 in wheat germplasm.
