USGA Summary Points:The fungal endophyte Epichloë festucae secretes an abundant protein into the plant apoplast (the space between the plant cells) that is similar to proteins from Penicillium and Aspergillus that have antifungal activity. We have partially purified the E. festucae protein from the secreted proteins. The partially purified E. festucae protein had antifungal activity against the dollar spot fungus in a plate assay. It may therefore be a component of the wellestablished endophyte-mediated disease resistance seen in strong creeping red fescue.
