Cover for Cold hardiness in plants: molecular genetics, cell biology and physiology. Seventh International Plant Cold Hardiness Seminar, Sapporo, Japan, 10-15 July 2004.

This book contains 16 papers presenting the latest research findings on plant freezing and chilling stress from major laboratories around the world. They focus on various aspects of molecular genetics and, in many cases, the use of transgenic plants to further our understanding of plant cold...

Cover for Functional role of winter-accumulating proteins from mulberry tree in adaptation to winter-induced stresses.

This paper analyses the functional roles of some winter-accumulating proteins in the acquisition of freezing tolerance in cortical parenchyma cells of mulberry. In the cortical parenchyma cell of mulberry grown in Sapporo, Japan, many proteins are specifically accumulated during winter; these are...

Cover for Ectopic overexpression of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">AtCBF1</i> in potato enhances freezing tolerance.

This paper briefly describes frost impact on potato production and the changes in plants during cold acclimatization. It reports the latest results on the ectopic expression of Arabidopsis thaliana CBF1 (AtCBF1), its effect on enhancing freezing tolerance in wild and domesticated potato species via ...

Cover for Overexpression of a heat-inducible <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">apx</i> gene confers chilling tolerance to rice plants.

This paper examines the effect of prior high-temperature exposure on the susceptibility of rice (cv. Kirara 397) seedlings to chilling injury, and evaluates the changes in L-ascorbate peroxidase (APX) activity and induction of transcription after exposure to high temperature in order to determine...

Cover for The role of compatible solutes in plant freezing tolerance: a case study on raffinose.

This paper reviews the possible role of raffinose (Raf) and raffinose family oligosaccharides (RFO) in plant stress tolerance, and, in particular, in plant freezing tolerance. The role of Raf in cellular desiccation tolerance, the effects of Raf on the stability of proteins and membranes during...

Cover for Effect of plasma membrane-associated proteins on acquisition of freezing tolerance in <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Arabidopsis thaliana</i>.

This paper focuses on several selected cold-responsive plasma membrane proteins and examines their functions in direct relation to cold acclimatization. The proteins include dehydrins (ERD10 and ERD14), outer membrane lipoprotein-like protein (lipocalin-like: AtLCN), and DREPP-like protein and...

Cover for The role of the CBF-dependent signalling pathway in woody perennials.

A study was conducted to investigate the changes in phenotype and transcript profile of transgenic Populus constitutively expressing CBF1 from Arabidopsis thaliana (AtCBF1). Ectopic expression of AtCBF1 was sufficient to significantly increase the freezing tolerance (FT) of non-acclimatized leaves...
