The invention discloses a tomato S1lPIF4 gene, protein and application thereof to improving the low temperature resistance of plant. The nucleotide sequence of the S1lPIF4 gene is SEQ ID NO.1, and thecorresponding amino acid sequence is as shown in SEQ ID NO. 2. A tomato SlIPIF4 overexpression plant or a gene knockout plant through the gene means to regulate the expression level of the S1lPIF4 gene in order to do research on the regulatory mechanism of the S1lPIF4 gene on the low temperature resistance of tomato. According to the result, overexpression of S1lPIF4 at the lower temperature canpromote accumulation of plant hormone abscisic acid (ABA) and jasmonic acid (JA), inhibits accumulation of gibberellin (GA), further induces expression of the low temperature resistant gene of the tomato, and finally improves the low temperature resistance of the tomato. Therefore, the S1lPIF4 gene of the tomato enhances the low temperature resistance by inducing formation of hormones ABA and JA in the body. The tomato S1lPIF4 gene provides the gene resource for breeding new varieties of low temperature resistant tomato, has the good potential application value, and lays theoretical basis fordoing research on tomato plant distress response signal mechanism and molecular mechanism of being tolerant to adverse environment.
