Prevalence of ToxA-sensitive alleles of the wheat gene Tsn1 in Australian and Chinese wheat cultivars

Oliver, Richard Peter; Rybak, Kasia; Solomon, Peter; Ferguson-Hunt, Margo


A recent survey of worldwide isolates of Stagonospora nodorum showed that all Australian isolates expressed the host-specific toxin ToxA (Stukenbrock and McDonald 2007). In contrast, very few Chinese isolates did. All the Australian Pyrenophora tritici-repentis isolates that were tested expressed ToxA. We therefore postulated that the wheat gene that confers sensitivity to ToxA, Tsn1, would vary in prevalence in wheat cultivars in use in the two countries. Contrary to expectation, 10 out of 21...[Show more]
