Isolation of a cDNA clone and characterization of expression of the highly abundant, cold acclimation-associated 14 kDa dehydrin of blueberry

Abstract

Dehydrins are a family of plant proteins that are induced by dehydrative stresses such as those caused by drought, salinity, and low/freezing temperature. Induction of some dehydrins may be responsive to ABA and/or short photoperiod as well. Previously, we reported that in blueberry a family of dehydrins of 65, 60, and 14 kDa accumulates in floral buds… (More)
