Temperature-dependent phase behavior of phosphatidylglycerols from chilling-sensitive and chilling-resistant plants.
thaliana containing elevated levels of high-melting-point phosphatidylglycerols were not affected by short-term chilling treatments (up to 7 d), whereas enhanced chilling-induced damage was observed as compared with the wild type beyond 2 wk at 2 [degrees] C (Wu and Browse, 1995).
Elevated levels of high-melting-point phosphatidylglycerols do not induce chilling sensitivity in an Arabidopsis mutant.
