Development of commercially valuable traits in hexaploid triticale lines with Aegilops introgressions as dependent on the genome composition

Development of commercially valuable traits in hexaploid triticale lines with Aegilops... Introgressive hybridization is an efficient means to improve the genetic diversity of cultivated cereals, including triticale. To identify the triticale lines with Aegilops introgressions, genotyping was carried out with ten lines obtained by crossing hexaploid triticale with genome-substitution forms of the common wheat cultivar Aurora: Aurolata (AABBUU), Aurodes (AABBSS), and Aurotika (AABBTT). The genome composition of the triticale lines was studied by in situ hybridization, and recombination events involving Aegilops and/or common wheat chromosomes were assumed for nine out of the ten lines. Translocations involving rye chromosomes were not observed. Substitutions for rye chromosomes were detected in two lines resulting from crosses with Aurolata. Genomic in situ hybridization (GISH) with Ae. umbellulata DNA and molecular genetic analysis showed that chromosome 1R was substituted with Ae. umbellulata chromosome 1U in one of the lines and that 2R(2U) substitution took place in the other line. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) with the Spelt1 and pSc119.2 probes revealed a translocation from Ae. speltoides to the long arm of chromosome 1B in one of the two lines resulting from crosses with Aurodes and a translocation in the long arm of chromosome 7B in the other line. In addition, the pSc119.2 probe revealed chromosome 1B rearrangements in four lines resulting from crosses with Aurolata and in a line resulting from crosses with Aurotika. The lines were tested for main productivity parameters. A negative effect on all productivity parameters was demonstrated for Ae. umbellulata chromosome 2U. The overwinter survival in all of the lines was similar to or even higher than in the original triticale cultivars. A substantial increase in winter resistance as compared with the parental cultivar was observed for the line carrying the T7BS-7SL translocation. The line with the 1R(1U) chromosome substitution seemed promising for the baking properties of triticale. Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals
