AbstractCytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) results from incompatibility between nuclear and cytoplasmic genomes, and is characterized by the inability to produce viable pollen. The restoration of male fertility generally involves the introgression of nuclear genes, termed restorers of fertility (Rf). CMS has been widely used for hybrid seed production in many crops but not in wheat, partly owing to the complex genetics of fertility restoration. In this study, an acrocentric chromosome that restores pollen fertility of CMS wheat in Hordeum chilense cytoplasm (msH1 system) is studied. The results show that this chromosome, of H. chilense origin and named Hchac, originated from a complex reorganization of the short arm of chromosomes 1Hch (1HchS) and 6Hch (6HchS). Diversity arrays technology (DArT) markers and cytological analysis indicate that Hchac is a kind of 'zebra-like′ chromosome composed of chromosome 1HchS and alternate fragments of interstitial and distal regions of chromosome 6HchS. PCR-based markers together with FISH, GISH, and meiotic pairing analysis support this result. A restorer of fertility gene, named Rf 6H ch S, has been identified on the short arm of chromosome 6HchS. Moreover, restoration by the addition of chromosome 1HchS has been observed at a very low frequency and under certain environmental conditions. Therefore, the results indicate the presence of two Rf genes on the acrocentric chromosome: Rf 6H ch S and Rf 1H ch S, the restoration potential of Rf 6H ch S being greater. The stable and high restoration of pollen fertility in the msH1 system is therefore the result of the interaction between these two restorer genes.
