The effect of cold acclimation and abscisic acid (ABA) treatment on the free amino acid composition was compared in Chinese Spring chromosome 5A substitution lines with different levels of freezing tolerance. The total amino acid content gradually increased during the 3-week cold acclimation period, while the effect of ABA became visible only after 7 d. The ratio of members of the glutamate family increased during cold acclimation and the ratio of amino acids belonging to the aspartate family decreased. Opposite changes were observed after treatment with ABA. Consistently with these results, ABA only induced a major increase in the Asn content, while the Asp, Glu, Gln and Pro levels were greatly induced by cold. A corresponding alteration at the gene expression level was only found for Pro and Glu. With the exception of Pro, cold- or ABA-induced changes in the amino acid levelsor Pro, did not correlate with the freezing tolerance of the three genotypes examined and were not affected by chromosome 5A. Since cold acclimation induced the accumulation of most of the amino acids, while ABA had a significant effect only on Asn, the cold-induced changes in free amino acid levels were probably not mediated by ABA.
