  1. 1. Unravelling the complexity of cold acclimation in plants

    Author : Aakash Chawade; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bioinformatics; cold acclimation; winter; oat; arabidopsis; stress; freezing; genetic networks; metabolomics;

    Abstract : Many plants respond to low non-freezing temperatures by increasing their freezing tolerance in a process known as cold acclimation. Microarray studies have shown that hundreds of genes are differentially expressed during the cold acclimation process in Arabidopsis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Low temperature acclimation in plants alterations in photosynthetic carbon metabolism

    University dissertation from Umeå : Fysiologisk botanik

    Author : Maria Lundmark; Vaughan Hurry; Charles Guy; [2007]
    Keywords : Plant physiology; cold acclimation; carbon metabolism; photosynthesis; respiration; Växtfysiologi; Physiological Botany; fysiologisk botanik;

    Abstract : Although low temperature plays an important role in determining agricultural yield, little is known about the effect on the underlying biochemical and physiological processes that influence plant growth. Photosynthesis and respiration are central to plant growth and both processes are heavily affected by temperature. READ MORE

  3. 3. In the quest for a cold tolerant variety : gene expression profile analysis of cold stressed oat and rice

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Angelica Lindlöf; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cold tolerance; oat; rice; bioinformatics analysis; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Other biology Bioinformatics; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Övrig biologi Bioinformatik; Technology; Teknik;

    Abstract : Cold acclimation is a process which increases the freezing tolerance of an organism, after exposure to low, non-freezing temperatures. The acclimation ensures that cold tolerant species can endure harsh winter conditions, by preparing them to sub-zero temperatures. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cold Acclimation in oats and other plants: Dissecting low temperature responses using a comparative genomic approach

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Marcus Bräutigam; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cold acclimation; oat; EST; microarray; transcriptome; chilling; freezing; rice; Arabidopsis; TILLING; mutation;

    Abstract : Cold acclimation protects plants from temperate regions of the world from the deleterious effects of low and freezing temperatures. This is through a series of transcriptional, regulatory and metabolic changes that enable continued growth and survival. READ MORE

  5. 5. Natural variation in cold adaptation and freezing tolerance in Arabidopsis thaliana

    University dissertation from Umeå : Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap, Umeå universitet

    Author : Antoine Bos; Pär Ingvarsson; Hans Stenøien; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arabidopsis thaliana; cold acclimation; freezing tolerance; flowering time; latitudinal clines; genetic variation; evolutionary genetics; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Plants have spread to almost everywhere in the world. As they disperse, they meet many different environments to which they may be able to adapt. For a plant species to adapt to a new environment, genetic variation is needed. The individuals differ from each other in their genetic composition, which often means differences in phenotypes.
