Abstract:

Plants have evolved sophisticated and fine-tuned mechanisms in response to various stresses. Recently, Chinese scientists have made breakthrough advances toward our understanding on the molecular mechanisms of sensing cold signals in rice, the artificial selection of the sensor during rice domestication, and the regulatory role of phosphorylation in cold signaling in Arabidopsis.
