Crossing the species barrier: investigating vertical transmission of a fungal endophyte from tall fescue within a novel ryegrass association
(Lincoln University, 2017-02-28)
Many Poaceae grasses form a symbiosis with Epichloë fungal endophytes. Initially a serious problem in agriculture due to their production of alkaloids toxic to livestock, endophyte strains were identified that were less ...
Storing carbon in leaf lipid sinks enhances perennial ryegrass carbon capture especially under high N and elevated CO₂
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the Society for Experimental Biology, 2020-04-06)
By modifying two genes involved in lipid biosynthesis and storage [cysteine oleosin (cys-OLE)/diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase (DGAT)], the accumulation of stable lipid droplets in perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) leaves ...
