Comparison of the heavy metal bioaccumulation capacity of an epiphytic moss and an epiphytic lichen.
TLDR
The moss had the highest bioaccumulation capacity for all metals and showed a more constant and linear accumulation trend than the lichen. Expand
Toxicity, Accumulation, and Removal of Heavy Metals by Three Aquatic Macrophytes
TLDR
Investigation of accumulation, tissue and intracellular localization, and toxic effects of cadmium (Cd), lead (Pb), zinc (Zn), and copper (Cu) in three aquatic macrophytes showed that they could be considered good candidates for wastewaters remediation purpose. Expand
Ultrastructural alterations and HSP 70 induction in Elodea ca-nadensisMichx. exposed to heavy metals
TLDR
The induction of HSP 70 in E. canadensis would confer a higher resistance to pollutants under stressful conditions, lethal for other mosses and higher plant species. Expand
Antiproliferative, Antibacterial and Antifungal Activity of the Lichen Xanthoria parietina and Its Secondary Metabolite Parietin
TLDR
The results indicate that Xanthoria parietina is a major potential source of antimicrobial and anticancer substances. Expand
Ultrastructural changes and Heat Shock Proteins 70 induced by atmospheric pollution are similar to the effects observed under in vitro heavy metals stress in Conocephalum conicum
TLDR
Changes in ultrastructure and induction of Heat Shock Proteins 70 have been studied in Conocephalum conicum (Marchantiales) collected in different urban and country sites in Italy and a progressive accumulation of Hsp70 was detected following heavy metals exposition. Expand
Antioxidant activity in extracts from Leptodictyum riparium (Bryophyta), stressed by heavy metals, heat shock, and salinity
Abstract We studied the antioxidant activity of the moss Leptodictyum riparium stressed with lead, cadmium, heat shock, and salinity. The acetonic extracts of the moss were tested for antioxidantExpand
In-field and in-vitro study of the moss Leptodictyum riparium as bioindicator of toxic metal pollution in the aquatic environment: Ultrastructural damage, oxidative stress and HSP70 induction
TLDR
The results showed that L. riparium is a valuable bioindicator for toxic metal pollution of water ecosystem, accumulating different amounts of toxic metals from the aquatic environment, and GST and HSP70s as promising biomarkers of metal toxicity. Expand
Antibacterial and antifungal activities of acetonic extract from Paullinia cupana Mart. seeds
TLDR
The contemporaneous presence of different bioactivities in the extract from guarana suggests this plant as a source of bioactive substances. Expand
In situ remediation of contaminated marinesediment: an overview
TLDR
It is found that significant gaps still remain into the knowledge about the application of in situ contaminated sediment remediation techniques from the technical and the practical viewpoint and only activated carbon-based technologies are well developed and currently applied with several available case studies. Expand
Effects of heavy metals on ultrastructure and Hsp70 induction in Lemna minor L. exposed to water along the Sarno River, Italy.
TLDR
Results presented showed that copper specifically increased Hsp70 levels at concentrations detected in polluted river waters, whereas cadmium and lead did not; on the other side, the latter represent highly toxic elements when specimens were exposed to higher levels in vitro. Expand
