Cold stress is a major environmental factor that limits plant growth and development, and geographical distribution. Plants have evolved a series of physiological and molecular mechanisms to protect against low-temperature damage in the long-term adaptation to changing environmental temperatures. In recent years, the molecular mechanisms of how plants sense, transduce and regulate low temperature tolerance have made great breakthrough and progress in model plants such as rice and Arabidopsis. Centered on CBF-COR, this paper reviews the molecular mechanism of plant response to low temperature stress by integrating external signals such as low temperature, circadian rhythm, photoperiod, flowering and hormones, as well as internal controls such as transcription level, post translation level and epigenetic modification. The future research direction and focus on this field are discussed.
