Low temperature is a main impact factor for freeze injury of citrus.It is also a frequent natural disaster for citrus production.When cold injury occurs,citrus makes some effective response to resist it.The plant signal transduction mechanism,cold acclimation and regulation pathway during freezing injury were reviewed in this paper.Possibility of improving citrus against cold injury with molecular mechanism of cold resistance and transgenic technology were discussed.
