USGA Summary Points:The fungal endophyte (Epichloƫ festucae) that infects strong creeping red fescue produces an abundant antifungal protein that is not found in most Epichloƫ species. Our research indicates that it is likely involved in the disease resistance observed in endophyte-infected strong creeping red fescue. The activities of the E. festucae antifungal protein produced in yeast, bacteria, and in the fungus Penicillium chrysogenum were assessed for antifungal activity. The P. chrysogenum expression system was the best for recovery of highly active E. festucae antifungal protein. However, the antifungal protein also had activity against P. chrysogenum, which reduced the yields of the protein that could be recovered. To overcome this issue we developed a new protocol for growing the fungus that resulted in high yields of the antifungal protein. We have developed a reliable method for inoculating creeping bentgrass plants in the greenhouse with the dollar spot fungus. We have started to test foliar sprays containing the antifungal protein onto dollar spot infected plants to determine if this could be a new method for disease control.
