Abstract/Contents:Presents a study initiated during 2010 to explore the use of candidate gene markers for the selection of heat-tolerant bentgrass. Identifies primary objectives of the study to "(1) develop PCR-based [polymerase chain reaction-based] markers from heat-responsive genes," "(2) map heat-responsive candidate genes on the present bentgrass genetic linkage maps," "(3) test for co-localization of candidate genes with mapped heat tolerance QTLs [quantitative trait loci]," and "(4) confirm candidate gene markers for use in marker-assisted breeding of creeping bentgrass for improved heat tolerance." Details methods and materials used during the experiment, stating that "turf quality, normalized difference vegetative index (NDVI), chlorophyll fluorescence, chlorophyll content, and electrolyte leakage are being used to evaluate the heat tolerance of individuals in the population." Reports that "a potential marker for cysteine protease has been developed and is being scored to be added to the map." Concludes that "initial heat stress results show there are significant phenotypic variations within the population."

USGA Summary Points:Several methods of detecting polymorphism have been tested A potential marker for cysteine protease has been developed and is being scored to be added to the map Parental DNA is being sequenced to uncover polymorphisms in two important heat tolerance genes, HSP16 and expansin Heat stress trials are underway to confirm candidate genes importance and expand QTL maps Initial heat stress results show there are significant phenotypic variations within the population
