The appearance of dehydrins (DHNs) in cells is required for the development of cold resistance. DHNs are therefore considered specific markers of cold resistance by some authors. DHNs accumulate in plants concomitantly with a reduction of intracellular water content, and presumably protect membranes and proteins from damage caused by moisture loss. DHN content in pine needles increases in spring and autumn when moisture availability and temperatures are most unfavorable. The present work is… CONTINUE READING
