USGA Summary Points:Ion leakage test indicated that perennial ryegrass can successfully cold acclimate, while annual ryegrass is unable to cold acclimate. Two weeks of cold acclimation is sufficient for perennial ryegrass to achieve freezing tolerance, and lengthening the cold acclimation beyond two weeks did not increase freezing tolerance further. Overexpressing the two perennial ryegrass antifreeze protein genes, LpIRIP1 and LpIRI P2, in the model species Arabidopsis enhanced freezing tolerance as evidenced by the increased survival rate and reduced ion leakage after the transgenic lines were subjected to freezing temperatures.
