Résumé
Epigenetic regulation plays a key role in the mechanisms of plant response to environmental conditions, without altering the DNA sequence. Different stresses stimulate a change in the gene expression through DNA methylation, histone modification, microRNA, transposon and repressive polycomb complex activity. We increase our understanding of plant adaptation to stressful conditions and the mechanism on which it is based by studying epigenetic changes. Epigenetic changes in the genome have been identified in different agricultural crops, which have enabled the adaptability of crops to drought stress. Given the detrimental effects of global climate change, particularly drought, the use of epigenetic differences to develop more adaptable crop varieties is of great importance in plant breeding
