Six wheat lines with recombination between Aegilops uniaristata chromosome 3N and wheat chromosome 3A were produced. These were characterized in terms of exchange points by RFLP analysis. Chromosome 3N carries an undesirable brittle rachis gene and three of the recombinant lines had lost this character. The results also support previously published evidence of a pericentric inversion in chromosome 3N relative to the wheat homoeologous group 3 chromosomes.
