Comment
The effects of (recessive) awn-promoting genes were documented in a number of studies, mainly through monosomic and disomic F1 comparisons, and in tetraploids, while Heyne & Livers (390) provided genetic evidence of their effects. A series of 'a' genes was documented, but the evidence supporting the existence of at least some of these was not well supported. For this reason, symbols for this gene series are not recognized in the Catalogue of Gene Symbols for Wheat (9441).
