Female somatic cells have two pairs of autosomes and two pairs of sex chromosomes (2n = 8), whereas male somatic cells have two pairs of autosomes and two monosomic sex chromosomes (2n - 2 = 6) (Fig.
Chi-square analysis of the F2 segregation data between a set of monosomic susceptible cultivars Triticum spelta and Early Premium revealed that the genes effective against race 2E16 are located on chromosomes 3B, 4D and 5D, and temporarily designated as YrEP1, YrEP2 and YrEP3, respectively.
Eight Ptr isolates--ASC1a, ASC1b, 86-124a, Nubr-1, Rog5/ 04, DTR 1-2000, and DTR 12-2000--were used for the development of differential varieties, while only the most virulent isolate (ASC1b) was used for the screening of synthetic lines and monosomic analysis.
