  • The ability of an organism to acclimate to its environment is a key determinant in its global distribution and capacity to compete with other organisms. The heat stress response, a highly conserved environmental and developmental program in eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms, is an important component of the acclimation response of plants. Previous studies have shown that heat shock transcription factors play an important role in thermotolerance in plants and other organisms, controlling the… CONTINUE READING
