A novel naturally Phe206Tyr mutation confers tolerance to ALS-inhibiting herbicides in Alopecurus myosuroides.Herbicide-resistant weeds pose a serious threat to world food production. The rapid and widespread development of target-site based resistance limits the application of herbicides. Alopecurus myosuroides Huds. (blackgrass) has spread rapidly in winter wheat regions in China, and the field recommended dose of ALS herbicides no longer controls blackgrass populations in recent years. A highly resistant population TW18(R) was collected in 2018 from Shandong Province. Dose-response assays showed that the TW18 was resistant to mesosulfuron-methyl, flucarbazone-sodium, and imazethapyr, with resistance index values of 5.96, 6.1, and 4.09, respectively. DNA sequencing of the TW18 population revealed a Phe206Tyr (F206Y) mutation in the ALS, which was not yet reported. Blackgrass ALS gene with the F206Y mutation (R gene) was expressed in Arabidopsis and rice. Transgenic studies have shown that both Arabidopsis and rice expressing this R gene have resistance to imazethapyr. However, it did not confer resistance to tribenuron methyl and florasulam in transgenic Arabidopsis. This study showed that the F206Y substitution caused herbicide resistance in blackgrass. To our knowledge, this is the first-reported F206Y mutation of a weed species in the natural environment. Transgenic plants showed this functional site could be utilized to generate imazethapyr-resistant rice to control herbicide-resistant weed damage.
