A barley beta-glucanase gene was located on chromosome I by southern
blot analysis with digests from wheat-barley addition lines by Ahluwalia
and Fincher (1988).
Eleven sodium azide-induced xenia expressing shrunken endosperm
mutants (sex) were characterized by Harris et al. (1987). One recessive
monofactorally inherited mutant (B9) was located to the short arm of
chromosome I by means of detecting linkage with translocation breakpoint.
Although allele tests were conducted among the eleven mutants selected
with no allelism detected, allele tests were not conducted with already
described and located sex mutants (Scheuring and Ramage, 1976; Ullrich and
