Proteomic characterization of copper stress response in Cannabis sativa roots
TLDR
Investigation of copper effects on the root proteome of C. sativa found differences in protein expression pattern were indicative of a plant adaptation to chronic stress and were directed to the reestablishment of the cellular and redox homeostasis. Expand
Proteomic analysis of Pteris vittata fronds: Two arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi differentially modulate protein expression under arsenic contamination
TLDR
Up‐regulation of multiple forms of glyceraldehyde‐3‐phosphate dehydrogenase, phosphoglycerate kinase, and enolase, primarily in G. mosseae‐inoculated plants, suggests a central role for glycolytic enzymes in arsenic metabolism. Expand
A “Weight-of-Evidence” Approach for the Integration of Environmental “Triad” Data to Assess Ecological Risk and Biological Vulnerability
TLDR
The EDSS has been applied in the integration of a battery of Triad data obtained during the European Union-funded Life Intervention in the Fraschetta Area project, which has been carried out in order to estimate the potential risk from soils of a highly anthropized area mainly impacted by deposition of atmospheric pollutants. Expand
Maize development and grain quality are differentially affected by mycorrhizal fungi and a growth-promoting pseudomonad in the field
TLDR
Overall, results showed that the bacterial strain and the AM fungi promoted maize growth cultivated in field conditions and differentially affected the grain nutritional content. Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and plant growth-promoting pseudomonads improve yield, quality and nutritional value of tomato: a field study
TLDR
The application of soil microorganisms in the field, in a real industrial tomato farm, provided direct information about the application of inocula, allowed the reduction of chemical inputs and positively influenced tomato quality. Expand
Effects of cadmium on meristem activity and nucleus ploidy in roots of Pisum sativum L. cv. Frisson seedlings
TLDR
Cd induced variations of the percentages of nucleus populations in the differentiated roots, increasing the percentage of 4C nuclei and decreasing that of 2C, while non-blocking Cd concentrations induced a number of mitotic aberrations, mainly consisting of sticky metaphases and anaphase bridges, whose frequency increased with Cd concentration. Expand
Proteomic analysis of Arabidopsis halleri shoots in response to the heavy metals cadmium and zinc and rhizosphere microorganisms
TLDR
Differences in protein expression pattern indicated a general upregulation of photosynthesis‐related proteins in plants exposed to metals and to metals plus microorganisms, suggesting that metal accumulation in shoots is an energy‐demanding process. Expand
Effects of Heavy Metals and Arbuscular Mycorrhiza on the Leaf Proteome of a Selected Poplar Clone: A Time Course Analysis
TLDR
This work demonstrates how importantly the time of sampling affects the proteome responses in perennial plants and underlines the ability of a proteomic approach, targeted on protein identification, to depict changes in a specific pattern of protein expression, while being still far from elucidating the biological function of each protein. Expand
Sensitivity of Candida albicans to essential oils: are they an alternative to antifungal agents?
TLDR
This work assessed the sensitivity of 30 different vaginal isolated strains of C. albicans to 12 essential oils, compared to the three main used drugs (clotrimazole, fluconazole and itraconazole). Expand
Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi and Plant Growth-Promoting Pseudomonads Increases Anthocyanin Concentration in Strawberry Fruits (Fragaria x ananassa var. Selva) in Conditions of Reduced Fertilization
TLDR
It is shown that inoculation with AM fungi and/or with selected and tested Pseudomonas strains, under conditions of reduced fertilization, increases anthocyanin concentration in the fruits of strawberry. Expand
