USGA Summary Points:The fungal endophyte (Epichlo√ę festucae) that infects strong creeping red fescue produces an abundant antifungal protein that is not found in most Epichlo√ę species. It may be involved in the disease resistance observed in endophyte-infected strong creeping red fescue. Gene knock-outs of the antifungal protein were produced, but extensive efforts to move the antifungal protein minus-isolates back into endophyte-free plants have been unsuccessful. These results raise the possibility that: 1) the antifungal protein may be important in the symbiosis between the turfgrass host and the endophyte and that without it the endophyte may be identified as a pathogen by the host and eliminated, or 2) the lack of ability to inoculate plants with the knock-out isolates is due to some other change in those isolates as the result of removing this gene. The activities of the E. festucae antifungal protein produced in yeast and bacteria, and the activity of a similar protein, PAF, from Penicillium chrysogenum, were assessed against the model fungus Neurospora crassa.
