Cover for Regulation of stress-responsive signalling pathways by eudicot <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">CBF/DREB1</i> genes.

Many temperate plants acquire tolerance to freezing temperatures after exposure to low, non-freezing temperatures in a process called cold acclimatization. During the cold acclimatization period, several transcription factors called C-repeat binding factors or dehydration responsive element binding ...
