Mechanical stimulation (MS), widely existing but usually ignored in nature, is one of the major environmental stress factors. MS by increasing the rotational speed of shaker incubator could alleviate a decrease in vitality of tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) suspension cultured cells and reduce the accumulation of MDA under chilling stress at 1°C, which in turn improved survival percentage under chilling stress and regrowth ability of tobacco suspension cells after chilling stress. In addition, MS could increase the activity of Δ1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate synthetase (P5CS) and induce the accumulation of endogenous proline in tobacco cells; exogenously applied proline also could enhance its endogenous level under normal culture conditions and survival percent-age of the cells under chilling stress. These results suggest that MS could improve chilling tolerance of tobacco suspension cells and the acquisition of this chilling tolerance was related to proline.
