USGA Summary Points:The study examined thermal Agrostis scabra, non-thermal Agrostis scabra, A. rossiae, and Agrostis stolonifera cv. L-93. Temperatures of 40°C or above were detrimental for both shoots and roots, causing protein degradation, particularly for heat-sensitive A. stolonifera plants. Thermal A. scabra plants had more thermal-stable proteins and expressed new protein synthesis at a lower temperature. Both protein characteristics are important for plant tolerance to heat stress. The up-regulation of a gene encoding explains that control cell wall extensibility and cell enlargement was associated with heat tolerance of Agrostis species.
