CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Abiotic stresses with emphasis on <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Brassica juncea</i>.

This chapter focuses on the effects of drought, salinity and frost stress on the different growth stages of Brassica juncea. The importance of understanding the molecular basis for abiotic stress tolerance in order to speed up the development of improved genotypes with increased stress tolerance is ...

Cover for Betaines and related osmoprotectants - significance in metabolic engineering of plant stress resistance.

This chapter describes the biosynthesis and metabolism of glycinebetaine [betaine] in plants, and discusses the roles of glycinebetaine and related osmoprotectants (proline, choline-o-sulfate, mannitol, trehalose, dimethylsulphoniopropionate, fructan, d-ononitol and polyamines) in plant responses...

Cover for Annual field crops.

In this chapter, a variety of cold adaptation mechanisms including reversible mechanisms of cold acclimatization as well as developmental adaptations (vernalization) are described. A special focus on the regulatory relationships between vernalization and acquisition of enhanced frost tolerance in...

Cover for Frost tolerance in plants.

Understanding and improving the cold hardiness of plants has been an endeavour that has been pursued since the onset of studying plant biology. Advances in biotechnology have allowed us to move beyond structure and physiology to identifying and understanding the role of specific genes and proteins. ...

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 ...

Cover for Freezing behaviours in plant tissues: visualization using NMR micro-imaging and biochemical regulatory factors involved.

This chapter reviews the use of NMR micro-imaging to study the freezing behaviours in plants and biochemical regulatory factors involved in the freezing behaviours. Using this non-invasive technology, cold-hardy plant tissues are shown to have developed various mechanisms to control freezing, such...

Cover for Analysis of the ascorbate antioxidant pathway in overwintering populations of lucerne (<i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Medicago sativa</i> L.) of contrasting freezing tolerance.

A recurrent selection protocol, entirely performed under environmentally controlled conditions, was applied to develop lucerne populations selectively improved for their tolerance to freezing (TF populations). Several cycles of recurrent phenotypic selection have been performed in various genetic...

Cover for Ice nucleation, propagation and deep supercooling: the lost tribes of freezing studies.

Prior to the emphasis on the molecular biology of cold acclimatization, considerable research was conducted on the processes of ice nucleation and deep supercooling. In many species, these two processes are critical to winter hardiness or surviving episodes of frost. Over the past two decades,...

Cover for Plasma membrane and plant freezing tolerance: possible involvement of plasma membrane microdomains in cold acclimation.

Cold acclimation-induced increase in freezing tolerance is associated with diverse changes in the plasma membrane, which ultimately results in an increase in the cryostability of the plasma membrane during a freeze-thaw excursion and an acceleration of the recovery process after thawing. Many...
