Metal uptake by xerothermic plants introduced into Zn-Pb industrial wastes
The dusty surfaces of post-flotation wastes contain high concentrations of toxic compounds and spread widely if appropriate vegetation is not introduced. It has been previously established thatExpand

GPR39 (Zinc Receptor) Knockout Mice Exhibit Depression-Like Behavior and CREB/BDNF Down-Regulation in the Hippocampus
Background: Zinc may act as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system by activation of the GPR39 metabotropic receptors. Methods: In the present study, we investigated whether GPR39 knockoutExpand

Alterations of Bio-elements, Oxidative, and Inflammatory Status in the Zinc Deficiency Model in Rats
Our previous study showed that dietary zinc restriction induces depression-like behavior with concomitant up-regulation of the N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor (NMDAR). Because metal ions, oxidativeExpand

Establishment of arbuscular mycorrhizal plants originating from xerothermic grasslands on heavy metal rich industrial wastes–new solution for waste revegetation
Industrial waste substrata, rich in heavy metals, are poorly suited for plant growth. Efforts are made to establish an appropriate plant cover to reduce erosion and further contamination. Grasses areExpand

Characterisation of 210Pb dated peat core by various X-ray fluorescence techniques
Abstract Ombrotrophic peat bogs form an independent ecosystem fed by atmospheric precipitation. There is a correlation between depth and time, thus sections of peat taken from various depths canExpand

Chronic but not acute antidepresant treatment alters serum zinc/copper ratio under pathological/zinc-deficient conditions in mice.
Depression is the leading psychiatric disorder with a high risk of morbidity and mortality. Clinical studies report lower serum zinc in depressed patients, suggesting a strong link between zinc andExpand
