Flavonoids are determinants of freezing tolerance and cold acclimation in Arabidopsis thaliana

Abstract

In plants from temperate climates such as Arabidopsis thaliana low, non-freezing temperatures lead to increased freezing tolerance in a process termed cold acclimation. This process is accompanied by massive changes in gene expression and in the content of primary metabolites and lipids. In addition, most flavonols and anthocyanins accumulate upon cold… (More)
