Albugo Brassicas

Brassica oleracea plants resistant to Albugo candida


This patent relates to Brassica oleracea plants resistant to Albugo candida .

Albugo candida is a widespread disease that causes serious problems in many Brassica growing areas. White rust most commonly occurs on: field mustard (Brassica campestris L .), leaf or Chinese mustard (B. juncea Zerj, & Coss.), black mustard (B. nigra (L.) Koch), broccoli (B. oleracea L. var. italica L.), cauliflower (B. oleracea L. var. botrytis L.), cabbage (B. oleracea L. var. capitata L.), Brussels sprouts (B. oleracea L. var. gemmifera DC), Chinese or celery cabbage (B. pekinensis (Lour) Rupr ), rutabaga (B. campestris L. var. napo Brassica (L) DC ), pakchoi (B. chinensis L.), turnip (B. rapa L.), radish (Raphanus sativus L.), and daikon (R. sativus L. var. longipinnatus Bailey).

This present invention addresses the need for resistance against Albugo candida by providing a Brassica oleracea plant, which is resistant to Albugo candida and thus protected from damage caused by this pathogen.

The resistance is stable, and can be transmitted to further generations and transferred to susceptible or less resistant B. oleracea cultivated plants, with the help of molecular markers.
