The wheat-rye translocation 1RS/1BL has spread to wheat breeding programmes and commercial wheat cultivars throughout the world. However, the 1RS arm in the translocation carries locus Sec-1, which encodes rye storage proteins (secalins) and affects breadmaking quality. An attempt was made to remedy the quality defect of the 1RS translocation in wheat by developing new 1RS/1BL lines.
