Lolium perenne is used extensively as a forage and turf grass due to its high nutritive values, rapid establishment and persistence. Festuca pratensis, a species closely related to L. perenne, has lower nutritive values but is one of the most winter-hardy species within the Lolium-Festuca complex. Frost tolerance is the main component of winter-hardiness and the plant species growing in temperate regions can acquire it through exposure to low, non-lethal temperatures, a phenomenon known as cold acclimation. Herein, we review our recent results of two proteomic projects, focused on F. pratensis and L. perenne. Each project involved the comparison of leaf protein accumulation profiles during cold acclimation between plants with different levels of frost tolerance by the use of two-dimensional electrophoresis and identification of differentially accumulated proteins by mass spectrometry. In the present paper similarities and differences in leaf proteome response to cold acclimation between F. pratensis and L. perenne are summarized.
