USGA Summary Points:Several unique heat tolerance genes were identified from thermal A. scabra adapted to geothermal sites in Yellowstone National Park using the differential display technique. The expression of a gene fragment encoding expansin proteins in cell walls, AsExp, was found to be highly correlated to heat tolerance in A. scabra and creeping bentgrass cultivars. The AsExp gene would be used as a molecular marker to select for heat-tolerant germplasm in bentgrass and other cool-season grass species. Suppression subtraction hybridization (SSH) cDNA libraries from the heat-tolerant A. scabra and the heat-sensitive 'Penncross' are being constructed to identify more heat tolerance genes or molecular markers from thermal A. scabra.
