USGA Summary Points:Suppression subtraction hybridization (SSH) cDNA libraries from the heat-tolerant A. scabra identified several important 'heat tolerance' genes or molecular markers from thermal A. scabra. Heat-responsive genes in thermal bentgrass were categorized into five functional groups: protein metabolism, signaling/transcription, carbon metabolism, stress defense, and other metabolism. Some genes have unknown functions. The largest group of heatresponsive genes is involved in stress/defense, followed by the group of genes related to protein metabolism. Proteomic profiling revealed that the up-regulation of sucrose synthase, glutathione S-transferase, superoxide dismutase, and heat shock protein Sti (stress inducible protein) may contribute to the superior root thermotolerance of A. scabra. Phospho-proteomic analysis indicated that two isoforms of fructose-biphosphate aldolase were highly phosphorylated under heat stress, and thermal A. scabra had greater phosphorylation than A. stolonifera, suggesting that the aldolase phosphorylation might be involved in root thermotolerance. Several PCR-based SSR markers from heat-responsive genes were developed, which could be used in marker-assisted selection of heat-tolerant bentgrass and other cool-season turfgrass species.
