Plants growing in temperate regions are able to survive freezing temperatures from −5° to −30°C, depending on the species, through a process known as cold acclimation. In the last decade much work has been done on the molecular mechanisms of low temperature (LT) signal transduction and cold acclimation. Mutant studies and microarray analyses have revealed C‐Repeat binding factor (CBF) ‐dependent and ‐independent signaling pathways in plants. Experimental evidence suggests the existence of… Expand
Perception, transduction, and networks in cold signaling
TLDR
Potential mechanisms for cold-perception, the functions of genes induced by cold temperatures in freezing tolerance, and the regulation of cold-responsive gene expression are described. Expand
Proteomic Analysis of Crop Plants Under Low Temperature: A Review of Cold Responsive Proteins
TLDR
Proteomics tools and techniques are introduced and the challenges faced with plant materials are discussed and the function of cold responsive proteins is reviewed in the context of cold stress tolerance in different crop species. Expand
The Omics of Cold Stress Responses in Plants
TLDR
The various aspects of cold stress responses in plants are discussed to develop a holistic understanding in the field of stress-mediated signaling. Expand
Low-temperature tolerance in land plants: Are transcript and membrane responses conserved?
TLDR
Low-temperature induced changes in both membrane lipid composition and gene transcription across multiple related plant species with differing degrees of low-tem temperature tolerance are reviewed, attempting to define a core set of changes for transcripts and lipids across species and treatment variations. Expand
Comparison of signaling interactions determining annual and perennial plant growth in response to low temperature
TLDR
An overview of the signaling interactions that determine plant growth at low temperature is provided and gaps in knowledge are highlighted, especially concerning the seasonality of signaling responses in perennial plants. Expand
Identification of OsSPX1 interacting proteins and their function in low temperature tolerance in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
The main goal of this project was to understand the molecular and physiological roles of OsSPX1 in the cold signaling pathway, and to identify potential OsSPx1 interacting proteins using in vivo and in vitro approaches. Expand
Physiological Role of Nitric Oxide in Plants Grown Under Adverse Environmental Conditions
TLDR
Recent progress in NO research is reviewed in a broader context of abiotic stress tolerance and its diverse roles in physiological and biochemical processes in plants are discussed and the protective mechanisms it exhibits towards abiotics stress tolerance are discussed. Expand
Transcriptome Response Mediated by Cold Stress in Lotus japonicus
TLDR
This is the first transcriptome profiling of the model legume L. japonicus under cold stress, and data obtained may be useful in identifying candidate genes for breeding modified species of forage legumes that more readily acclimate to low temperatures. Expand
Plant signaling: Understanding the molecular crosstalk
TLDR
This chapter provides an outline of the common features of stress signaling in plants with some current studies on the functional analysis of signaling machineries under salt and drought stresses. Expand
Cold sensing in grapevine-Which signals are upstream of the microtubular "thermometer".
TLDR
This work addresses cold-induced microtubules elimination in a grapevine cell line stably expressing a green fluorescent protein fusion of Arabidopsis TuB6 and concludes that a G-protein in concert with a phospholipase D convey the signal towards micro Tubules, whereas calmodulin seems to be not involved.

TLDR
The characterization of esk1 mutants and results from other mutants suggest that distinct signaling pathways activate different aspects of cold acclimation and that activation of one pathway can result in considerable freezing tolerance without activation of other pathways. Expand
Role of the Arabidopsis CBF transcriptional activators in cold acclimation
TLDR
It is suggested that COR gene induction involves a two-step cascade of transcriptional activators: the first step, CBF induction, involving an unknown activator present at normal growth temperature and the second step, COR gene induced, involving the action of the CBF activators. Expand
The pathway for perception and transduction of low‐temperature signals in Synechocystis
TLDR
Inactivation, by targeted mutagenesis, of the gene for each of the two histidine kinases and inactivation of the genes for the response regulator depressed the transcription of several lowtemperature‐inducible genes. Expand
A prominent role for the CBF cold response pathway in configuring the low-temperature metabolome of Arabidopsis.
TLDR
The results indicate that the metabolome of Arabidopsis is extensively reconfigured in response to low temperature, and that the CBF cold response pathway has a prominent role in this process. Expand
Over-expression of a single Ca2+-dependent protein kinase confers both cold and salt/drought tolerance on rice plants.
TLDR
OsCDPK7 was shown to be a positive regulator commonly involved in the tolerance to both stresses in rice, and simple manipulation of CDPK activity has great potential with regard to plant improvement. Expand
The wheat wcs120 promoter is cold‐inducible in both monocotyledonous and dicotyledonous species
TLDR
The promoter was found to be cold‐inducible in different freezing‐tolerant and ‐sensitive monocot and dicot species, suggesting that universal transcription factors responsive to LT may be present in all plants. Expand
Transcription Factor CBF4 Is a Regulator of Drought Adaptation in Arabidopsis1
TLDR
The isolation of an apparent homolog of the CBF/DREB1 proteins (CBF4) that plays the equivalent role during drought adaptation is reported, which proposes that the plant's response to cold and drought evolved from a common CBF-like transcription factor. Expand
Overexpression of the Arabidopsis CBF3 transcriptional activator mimics multiple biochemical changes associated with cold acclimation.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that overexpression of CBF3 in Arabidopsis also increases the freezing tolerance of cold-acclimated plants, and it is proposed that CBf3 integrates the activation of multiple components of the cold acclimation response. Expand
A New Cold-Induced Alfalfa Gene Is Associated with Enhanced Hardening at Subzero Temperature
TLDR
Changes in freezing tolerance are paralleled by changes in transcript levels of cas15 (cold acclimation-specific gene encoding a 14.5-kD protein), a cold-induced gene, suggesting that cold-initiated events up to and including the accumulation of cas 15 transcripts depend on preexisting gene products. Expand
Roles of the CBF2 and ZAT12 transcription factors in configuring the low temperature transcriptome of Arabidopsis.
TLDR
Constitutive expression of ZAT 12 in Arabidopsis caused a small, but reproducible, increase in freezing tolerance, indicating a role for the ZAT12 regulon in cold acclimation. Expand
