چکیده    Dreb1a (dehydration responsive element binding 1a) transcription factor is involved in plant responses to abiotic stresses. an a. thaliana dreb1a t-dna insertional mutant (dreb1a) alongside previously reported dreb1a over-expressing plants (ox28) were detailed in molecular and phenotypic characterizations. the t-dna of the dreb1a line was inserted at position -253, and segregation ratio confirmed a single t-dna locus in its t0 plant population. the rt-pcr analysis of dreb1a seedlings also revealed a null mutant in the dreb1a gene. the phenotypes of the dreb1a seedlings subjected to cold stress were not different from those of the wild type (wt-col0), but under salinity dreb1a plants showed about 11% less seed germination and the four times less survival rate, compared to wt-col0 plants. under normal growth conditions, there was a direct correlation between dreb1a expression levels and the root length as the dreb1a, in contrast to the ox28 line, showing 29% longer roots than that in the wt-col0 plants. interestingly, this root phenotype had an association with the accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ros) in dreb1a by 31% less, and in ox28 by 97% more than that in the control seedlings. in addition, the dreb1a plant possessed significantly higher activities in superoxide dismutase, peroxidase, polyphenol oxidase and significantly lower activity in catalase than wt-col0, but no differences in extracellular peroxidase activity. on the other hand, the ox28 plant possessed a higher extracellular peroxidase activity. overall, these results suggest that a precise expression level of dreb1a gene is required for proper growth and development in a. thaliana.
