Title Genetic and physical mapping of Pi37(t), a new gene conferring resistance to rice blast in the famous cultivar St. No. 1.
The famous rice cultivar (cv.), St. No. 1, confers complete resistance to many isolates collected from the South China region. To effectively utilize the resistance, a linkage assay using microsatellite markers (SSR) was performed in the three F2 populations derived from crosses between the donor cv. St. No. 1 and each of the three susceptible cvs. C101PKT, CO39 and AS20-1, which segregated into 3R:1S (resistant/susceptible) ratio, respectively. A total of 180 SSR markers selected from each chromosome equally were screened. The result showed that the two markers RM128 and RM486 located on chromosome 1 were linked to the resistance gene in the respective populations above. This result is not consistent with those previously reported, in which a well-known resistance gene Pif in the St. No. 1 is located on chromosome 11. To confirm this result, additional four SSR markers, which located in the region lanked by RM128 and RM486, were tested. The results showed that markers RM543 and RM319 were closer to, and RM302 and RM212 completely co-segregated with the resistance locus detected in the present study. These results indicated that another resistance gene involved in the St. No. 1, which is located on chromosome 1, and therefore tentatively designated as Pi37(t). To narrow down genomic region of the Pi37(t) locus, eight markers were newly developed in the target region through bioinformatics analysis (BIA) using the publicly available sequences. The linkage analysis with these markers showed that the Pi37(t) locus was mapped to a approximately 0.8 centimorgans (cM) interval flanked by RM543 and FPSM1, where a total of seven markers co-segregated with it. To physically map the locus, the Pi37(t)-linked markers were landed on the reference sequence of cv. Nipponbare through BIA. A contig map corresponding to the locus was constructed based on the reference sequence aligned by the Pi37(t)-linked markers. Consequently, the Pi37(t) locus was defined to 374 kb interval flanking markers RM543 and FPSM1, where only four candidate genes with the resistance gene conserved structure (NBS-LRR) were further identified to a DNA fragment of 60 kb in length by BIA.
