Application of glutathione to roots selectively inhibits cadmium transport from roots to shoots in oilseed rape
Glutathione is a tripeptide involved in various aspects of plant metabolism. This study investigated the effects of the reduced form of glutathione (GSH) applied to specific organs (source leaves,Expand

Cesium Uptake by Rice Roots Largely Depends Upon a Single Gene, HAK1, Which Encodes a Potassium Transporter
Incidents at the Fukushima and Chernobyl nuclear power stations have resulted in widespread environmental contamination by radioactive nuclides. Among them, 137cesium has a 30 year half-life, and itsExpand

Effect of rhizosphere pH condition on cadmium movement in a soybean plant
To study the effect of rhizosphere pH condition on the cadmium uptake movement, 109Cd, was applied as a radioisotope tracer to a soybean plant grown in a water culture at pH 4.5 or pH 6.5. TheExpand

Foliar-applied glutathione activates zinc transport from roots to shoots in oilseed rape.
Glutathione is a tripeptide involved in diverse aspects of plant metabolism. We investigated how the reduced form of glutathione, GSH, applied site-specifically to plants, affects zinc (Zn)Expand

Application of glutathione and dithiothreitol to oil seed rape (Brassica napus L.) roots affects cadmium distribution in roots and inhibits Cd translocation to shoots
ABSTRACT Previously we have shown that site-specific application of glutathione (GSH) to roots inhibits cadmium (Cd) translocation from roots to shoots. In this study, we investigated the effects ofExpand
