Location, Isolation, and Transfer of Male-Fertility Restoring Genes to a Uniform Genetic Background in Wheat1

  1. S. S. Maan and
  2. K. A. Lucken2



A procedure is described by which the following materials and information can be obtalned in a relatively short time (8-10 crop generations): I) a monosomic set of male-sterile Chris in Triticum timopheevi Zhuk. cytoplasm; 2) chromosomal location of male-fertility restoring genes in several R-lines; and 3) substitution of chromosomes carrying male-fertility restoring genes to the genetic background of several common wheat varieties and the development of male-sterile monosomics for the critical chromosomes in these varieties.
