- NBS-profiling was used to study NBS-LRR resistance genes polymorphism in 32 Russian and foreign apple (M. domestica) varieties and nine Antonovka landraces. NBS-LRR resistance genes variability in the studied apple varieties was rather low. While in Antonovka landraces specific NBS-patterns were revealed, which may indicate the presence of a number of unique resistance genes. The results confirm that Antonovka landraces belong to M. domestica and Yakutskaya apple belongs to the section Gymnomeles.
