Light-quality regulation of freezing tolerance in Arabidopsis thaliana


To acquire freezing tolerance, higher plants require a period of low temperature (usually <4 °C) termed cold acclimation. Upon transfer of plants to low temperature, increased expression of the CRT/DRE binding factor (CBF) family of transcriptional activators leads to the upregulation of genes containing a C-repeat/drought-responsive (CRT/DRE) promoter… (More)
