Abstract: The differential expression was investigated between cold-induced and normal environment in tea plant (Camellia sinensis) with cDNA-AFLP (cDNA Amplified Fragments Length Polymorphism). Expression profiles were generated around 86 special cDNA fragments (16 pairs primer, 256 primer combinations). Ten differentially expressed transcript-derived fragments were isolated. Cha1 revealed similarities (77%) to one kind of low temperature and salt responsive protein in Arabidopsis thaliana. Cha5 revealed similarities (89%) to Arabidopsis thaliana 60 S ribosomal protein L7 (RPL7B), ChaH8 had high similarities (79%) to Nicotiana tabacum A10 mRNA for stress-inducible H1 histone-like protein. Cha9 had high similarities to Populus EST from severe drought-stressed opposite wood. Other 6 fragments showed no homology to the known sequences in GenBank, perhaps they were new genes.
