USGA Summary Points:Warm-season grasses with resistance to chinch bugs in the Blissus complex have been identified. Commercial production of 'Prestige' provides consumers with a high quality buffalograss with improved chinch bug resistance. We hypothesize that peroxidases and other oxidative stress enzymes are playing multiple roles in the resistant plant's defense response, including the downstream signaling of plant defense reactions to chinch bug injury and/or efficient removal of reactive oxygen species. This research identified genes differentially expressed in response to chinch bug feeding and will serve to increase the genomic resources available for buffalograss and facilitate development of improved turfgrasses with resistance to chinch bugs.
