Abiotic Stresses in Plants by A. Leone, C. Perrotta, B. Maresca (auth.), Luigi Sanità di

By A. Leone, C. Perrotta, B. Maresca (auth.), Luigi Sanità di Toppi, Barbara Pawlik-Skowrońska (eds.)

This e-book presents a useful perception into how the world of plant version to abiotic stresses has stepped forward during the program of the recent applied sciences. The booklet comprises 8 chapters written through amazing scientists internationally, who perform learn on the leading edge in their disciplines. the themes, addressed in updated particular chapters, comprise results and responses of vegetation to stresses brought on by such components as: 1) hot temperature, 2) low temperature (chilling and freezing), three) salt, four) drought, five) flooding, 6) heavy metals, 7) increased carbon dioxide, eight) ozone.

CORAGGIO ABA-mediated induction of the COR genes expression, but do not affect their expression at low temperatures. Actually, in the COR genes promoters an ABRE consensus is present, permitting their transcriptional activation by b-ZIPs, involved in the ABA-mediated pathway of stress response [83, 87]. Some Arabidopsis mutants affect COR78 expression (positively or negatively) in response to both cold and ABA, suggesting that the 'ABA-dependent' and the 'ABA-independent' pathways of cold acclimation are not completely independent, but "cross-talk" in some steps [88].
