Abstract
Powdery mildew, caused by Blumeria graminis f.sp. tritici (Bgt), is a destructive foliar disease of common wheat in areas with cool or maritime climates. Wild emmer wheat, Triticum turgidum ssp. dicoccoides, the progenitor of both domesticated tetraploid durum wheat and hexaploid bread wheat, harbors abundant genetic diversity related to resistance to powdery mildew that can be utilized for wheat improvement. An F2 segregating population was obtained from a cross between resistant bread wheat line 2L6 and susceptible cultivar Liaochun 10, after which genetic analysis of F2 and F2-derived F3 families was performed by inoculating plants with isolate Bgt E09. The results of this experiment demonstrated that powdery mildew resistance in 2L6, which was derived from wild emmer wheat accession IW30, was controlled by a single dominant gene, temporarily designated MLIW30. Nineteen SSR markers and two STS markers linked with MLIW30 were acquired by applying bulked segregant analysis. Finally, MLIW30 was located to the long arm of chromosome 4A and found to be flanked by simple sequence repeat markers XB1g2000.2 and XB1g2020.2 at 0.1 cM. Because no powdery mildew resistance gene in or derived from wild emmer wheat has been reported in wheat chromosome 4A, MLIW30 might be a novel Pm gene.
