Chromosomal location of genes for resistance to powdery mildew in common wheat (Triticum aestivum L. em Thell.). 8. Gene Pm32 in a wheat-Aegilops speltoides translocation line

The wheat-Aegilops speltoides translocation line L501 exhibits a disease response pattern distinctive from that of documented powdery mildew genes after inoculation with differential Blumeria graminis tritici isolates. Results based on cytological C-bandings and monosomic analyses reveal that a dominant resistance gene derived from Ae. speltoides is located on a T1BL·1SS chromosome translocation in this line. The new gene is designated Pm32.
