Low temperature is a noteworthy risk that limits development, advancement and distribution, causing the plant harm and harvest misfortunes. Plants react to cold stress through a process known as cold acclimation, which is a complex process involving changes at different dimensions that incorporate physiological and biochemical modifications, modifications in gene expression and changes in convergences of proteins and metabolites. Perception of cold stress by cell layers results in initiation of cold-responsive genes and transcription factors that help combat cold stress. Transcriptional reactions to cold are guided by both abscisic acid (ABA) dependent and independent pathways that regulate the expression of cold-responsive (COR) genes and in this way changing protein and metabolite homeostasis. Recent advances in the field of genomics, proteomics and metabolomics have led to new findings that have enlarged our comprehension of this perplexing wonder. Here, we examine the different parts of cold stress reactions in plants to build up an all-encompassing comprehension in the field of stress-intervened flagging.
