  • Changes in air temperature and CsbZIP6 expression levels in the leaves of six tea plant cultivars during cold acclimation

    CsbZIP6 is a negative regulator of cold response in transgenic arabidopsis

    The tea plant CsbZIP6 transcription factor functions as a negative regulator of the cold stress response in Arabidopsis thaliana, potentially by down-regulating cold-responsive genes. Wang et al. find that constitutive overexpression of CsbZIP6 in Arabidopsis lowered tolerance to freezing stress during seedling growth, exhibiting increased levels of electrolyte leakage and malondialdehyde contents, and reduced levels […] More
