The heavy-metal accumulator Brassica juncea L. is a high-biomass crop able to extract heavy-metal ions from the soil, a substantial part being translocated from root to shoot. Previous work has shown(More)
Glutathione (GSH) is the precursor of the phytochelatins (PC), which in plants and fungi are involved in heavy metal sequestration. The regulatory enzyme gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase (gamma-ECS)(More)
In roots of Brassica juncea L. cadmium (Cd) exposure (25 microM) induces a massive formation of phytochelatins (PCs), which is accompanied by an only moderate decrease (-20%) of the putative PC(More)
