Possible Role of Abscisic Acid and Heat Shock Proteins

Abstract

Endogenous abscisic acid levels and induced heat shock proteins were measured in tissue exposed for 6 hours to temperatures that reduced their subsequent chilling sensitivity. Onecentimeter discs excised from fully expanded cotyledons of 11day-old seedlings of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L., cv Poinsett 76) were exposed to 12.5 or 370C for 6 hours followed by… (More)
