Virus Resistance

  • Margaret G. Redinbaugh
  • Richard C. Pratt


Identification, characterization and deployment of virus resistant maize are complex tasks requiring multidisciplinary approaches. Insect transmission of viruses in nature and the potential presence of biologically distinct virus strains complicate screening for virus resistance. At least ten maize-infecting viruses cause damage worldwide, and naturally occurring resistance to each of these viruses has been identified in maize. Genes and quantitative trait loci for resistance to most of these viruses have been mapped in the maize genome, and regions on chromosomes 1, 3, 6 and 10 have been implicated in resistance to multiple phylogenetically unrelated viruses. Mechanisms associated with virus resistance and alternatives to naturally occurring virus resistance are discussed.
