Genetic background of the resistance against plant parasitic nematodes in wheat

Karelov A.V., Pylypenko L.A., Kozub N.A., Sozinov I.A., Blume Ya.B.


SUMMARY. The article describes the state of the art in research on resistance genes in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) against cereal cyst nematode (Heterodera avenae) and root lesion nematode (Pratylenchus neglectus) and their use in breeding programs. Most of the genes responsible for this resistance are listed and their chromosomal location and their resistance specificity are described. The sources of the genes that are widely used in resistance breeding with the aim of cyst nematode control, are mentioned as well. Finally alternative ways to transfer nematode resistance genes into wheat are indicated.

Key words: cereal cyst nematode, root lesion nematode, resistance genes, wheat, molecular markers
