Designation of Les21
--Neuffer, MG; England, D

Plants of Les*-1442 are yellowish green and grow slowly because of the many small chlorotic patches that appear below the leaf surface. Also fewer tiny round white necrotic lesions appear to arise from the chlorotic patches as the leaves mature. The necrotic lesions may enlarge and coalesce at senescence. Significant waxy translocation linkage data show no linkage to 22 of 23 translocation sites, covering the major portions of all 20 chromosome arms. This indicates that this mutant may be located in one of the regions not covered by these markers; namely, the distal end of 4S, 5S, 6L, 7S, 8L or 9L. The one missing test was for 7S. Since all the other designated lesion mutants have known locations, we have concluded that Les*-1442 could not be allelic to any of those; but an additional lesion site, which is designated Les21. The data are shown below:
