We have studied the induction of gene expression at low temperature by cloning mRNAs that accumulate when unripe tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) fruit are incubated at 4 degrees C. Two cloned mRNAs, C14 and C17, accumulate relatively rapidly in response to cold treatment, while a third, C19, displays a delayed response. Significant levels of these mRNAs were not detected during fruit ripening at normal temperature. We have analyzed gene expression at different temperatures and detect half… CONTINUE READING
