Scientists from the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), a national agricultural research institution in China, have identified a new gene related to cotton Verticillium Wilt, one of the major cotton diseases. Verticillium Wilt is caused by the fungal Verticillium dahlia. It is one of the most devastating diseases of upland cotton.

CAAS scientists found that the gene GhRPL18A-6 is involved in the disease resistance regulation of cotton and over-expression of the gene significantly improved Verticillium Wilt resistance in upland cotton, according to Chinese media reports.

Since it is difficult to breed resistant varieties through traditional breeding methods, identifying key genes related to Verticillium Wilt resistance is of great significance.

The research, published online in the journal Industrial Crops and Products, provides insight into the mechanisms of resistance to Verticillium Wilt as well as novel germplasm resources for molecular breeding of resistant cotton varieties. (RKS)
