Term Detail
GO term:response to cold
Synonym: freezing tolerance
GO id:GO:0009409
Definition:Any process that results in a change in state or activity of a cell or an organism (in terms of movement, secretion, enzyme production, gene expression, etc.) as a result of a cold stimulus, a temperature stimulus below the optimal temperature for that organism.
