ADH1 (alcohol dehydrogenase 1) was involved in plant growth and development and responded to various stresses. We published a cold-induced alcohol dehydrogenase 1 gene from C. bungeana, CbADH1, which exists 43 unique amino acids. Here, we confirmed that overexpression of CbADH1 in Arabidopsis and tobacco significantly improved cold shock tolerance through electrolyte leakage, semi-lethal temperature, phenotypic and survival analysis. These results indicate that CbADH1 is the candidate gene to improve the ability of plant freezing resistance, and it has great application value.

The purpose of experiments was to describe the alterations of content of steroid regulators (brassinosteroids, progesterone) during cold hardening of winter wheat. Further we studied physiological and...
Cassava (Manihot esculenta), an important food crop in tropical areas, is well-adapted to drought conditions, but is sensitive to cold. The expression of MeTCP4, a transcription factor involved in the...
Cold stress is a major limiting factor in grape (Vitis) productivity. In this study, we characterized a cold-responsive ERF (ethylene response factor) transcription factor, VaERF092, from Amur grape (...
is an important medicinal plant widely cultivated in East Asia. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous regulatory molecules that play essential roles in plant growth, development, and the response to envir...
Cold temperature during the reproductive stage often causes great yield loss of grain crops in subtropical and temperate regions. Previously we showed that the rice transcription factor bZIP73 plays a...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effect of cold exposure on an individual's glucose tolerance. Previous research has already shown that 10 days acclimation to a mild cold enviro...
This study is testing whether or not low-cost, virtual reality (VR) headsets for mobile phones can be used as a potential distractor from pain and thus would have clinical applications as ...
This study aims to explore whether the increased supply of dietary plant sterols and plant stanols have any influence on serum levels of phytosterols and on consistency of carotid atheroma...
The aim is to investigate the effects of yoghurt drinks containing two doses of plant stanol ester either with or without added camelina oil on the serum cholesterol levels in moderately h...
This randomized controlled double-blind intervention study unravels influence of dietary plant sterols and stanols on the structure and the sterol composition of the human aortic valve. Th...
An autosomal recessive fructose metabolism disorder due to absent or deficient fructose-1,6-diphosphatase activity. Gluconeogenesis is impaired, resulting in accumulation of gluconeogenic precursors (e.g., amino acids, lactate, ketones) and manifested as hypoglycemia, ketosis, and lactic acidosis. Episodes in the newborn infant are often lethal. Later episodes are often brought on by fasting and febrile infections. As patients age through early childhood, tolerance to fasting improves and development becomes normal.
The normal lack of the ability to produce an immunological response to autologous (self) antigens. A breakdown of self tolerance leads to autoimmune diseases. The ability to recognize the difference between self and non-self is the prime function of the immune system.
The ability of some cells or tissues to withstand ionizing radiation without serious injury. Tolerance depends on the species, cell type, and physical and chemical variables, including RADIATION-PROTECTIVE AGENTS and RADIATION-SENSITIZING AGENTS.
A constellation of responses that occur when an organism is exposed to excessive cold. In humans, a fall in skin temperature triggers gasping, hypertension, and hyperventilation.
A condition characterized by the recurrence of HEMOGLOBINURIA caused by intravascular HEMOLYSIS. In cases occurring upon cold exposure (paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria), usually after infections, there is a circulating antibody which is also a cold hemolysin. In cases occurring during or after sleep (paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria), the clonal hematopoietic stem cells exhibit a global deficiency of cell membrane proteins.
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
