Freezing Resistance and Lipid Changes in Choline-treated Wheat Seedlings
A number of studies have appeared over the years suggesting that the ability of seedlings to resist low temperatures can be enhanced by exposure to amino alcohols such as choline and ethanolamine (1–3). The idea behind these studies was that treatment with such compounds leads to an increase in phosphatidylcholine synthesis at the expense of phosphatidylethanolamine synthesis.
