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 dollar spot resistance observed in endophyte-infected strong creeping red fescue. Active E. festucae antifungal protein was abundantly expressed in Penicilllium chrysogenum and was purified from the culture filtrate. Foliar application of the purified E. festucae antifungal protein to endophyte-free strong creeping red fescue plants and creeping bentgrass plants protected them from severe dollar spot symptoms caused by Clarireedia jacksonii, the dollar spot pathogen.
