A spontaneous wheat-barley translocation line was previously detected in the progenies of the Mv9kr1 × 'Igri' wheat-barley hybrid and the translocation was identified as 5HS-7DS.7DL. Multicolor genomic in situ hybridization (mcGISH) with D and H genomic DNA probes and three-color fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) with repetitive DNA probes (Afa-family, pSc119.2, and pTa71) were performed to characterize the rearranged chromosome. The effect of 5HS and the deleted 7DS fragment on the morphological traits (plant height, fertility, yield, and spike characteristics) of wheat was assessed. Despite the non-compensating nature of the translocation, the plants showed good viability. The aim of the study was to physically localize SSR markers to the telomeric and subtelomeric regions of the 7DS chromosome arm. Of the 45 microsatellite markers analyzed, ten (Xbarc0184, Xwmc0506, Xgdm0130, Xgwm0735, Xgwm1258, Xgwm1123, Xgwm1250, Xgwm1055, Xgwm1220, and Xgwm0635) failed to amplify any 7DS-specific fragments, signaling the elimination of a short chromosome segment in the telomeric region. The breakpoint of the 5HS-7DS.7DL translocation appeared to be more distal than that of reported deletion lines, which provides a new physical landmark for future deletion mapping studies.
