IGA focuses on three loci controlling downy or powdery mildew resistance: Rpv3, Rpv12, Ren1. Ren1 is the first resistance gene that naturally evolved functional specificity against powdery mildew in the cultivated species Vitis vinifera. Rpv3 and Rpv12 were originally present in undomesticated grapes in North America and Asia and were historically used in introgression breeding.
