Epigenetic control of chromatin structure plays a critical role in plant stress responses. Thus, histone density and various histone modifications are involved in the response to both drought and the phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) in various plants. Particularly important in this context is histone acetylation, and in this review the recent progress in understanding the part played by histone deacetylase 1 (AhHDA1) from peanut (Arachis hypogaea) in the epigenetic regulation of the drought stress response was summarized. We also explore the prospects for future research in this field. In addition, we explore how plants are able to manipulate epigenetic regulation to enhance their stress tolerance, as well as how histone modifications in drought stress involved in the regulation of gene expression.
