Cover for Factors related to change of deep supercooling capability in xylem parenchyma cells of trees.

This chapter describes the view that the mechanisms of deep supercooling in xylem parenchyma cells (XPCs) of trees is difficult to explain only by an isolated water droplet theory. It also presents the results of a few recent studies suggesting that deep supercooling of XPCs is associated with a...

Cover for Impact of simulated acid snow stress on leaves of cold-acclimated winter wheat.

Wintering plants may be subjected to long-term freezing at a high subzero temperature and strong acid stress due to condensation of acid pollutants under the acid snow layer in winter. Additionally, light may be a potent stress factor, especially for wintering plants after severe freeze-thawing at...

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 Barley contains a large <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">CBF</i> gene family associated with quantitative cold-tolerance traits.

In a study conducted to determine the relationship between CBF genes and low-temperature (LT) tolerance of barley (Hordeum vulgare), results showed that: (1) barley has a large and complex CBF family; (2) the barley CBF family is representative in both size and complexity of CBF families of other...
