Dehydration responsive element binding protein 1 (DREB1)/C-repeat binding factor (CBF) induces the expression of many stress-inducible genes in Arabidopsis. We have previously reported the identification of three DREB1/CBF homologs from sweet cherry (Prunus avium). To identify the function of these homologs, one of the genes, CIG-B, was transformed into Arabidopsis. In one of the transgenic plant lines, the DREB1/CBF target gene cor15a was induced in the absence of stress treatment. The cor15a-overexpressing transgenic plant exhibited mild growth retardation and had greater salt and freezing tolerance than did the wild-type and the transgenic lines in which cor15a was not induced. These results suggest that this sweet cherry DREB1/ CBF homolog has a function similar to that of DREB1/CBF.
