Cadmium stress: an oxidative challenge
The current review gives an overview on Cd-induced ROS production and anti-oxidative defense in organisms under different Cd regimes and the C d-induced oxidative challenge is discussed with a focus on damage and signaling as downstream responses.
Phytoremediation of contaminated soils and groundwater: lessons from the field
It is clear that in spite of a growing public and commercial interest and the success of several pilot studies and field scale applications more fundamental research still is needed to better exploit the metabolic diversity of the plants themselves, but also to better understand the complex interactions between contaminants, soil, plant roots, and microorganisms in the rhizosphere.
Endophytic Bacteria and Their Potential Applications
The authors wish to acknowledge the European Commission for their support to the ENDEGRADE project (EU PROJECT: QLK3- CT2000-00164). DvdL and ST are presently being supported by Laboratory Directed
Phytoremediation: plant-endophyte partnerships take the challenge.
Normalisation of real-time RT-PCR gene expression measurements in Arabidopsis thaliana exposed to increased metal concentrations
The same best reference genes were identified when considering Cd or Cu treatments separately, which suggests that these three genes may also be suitable when studying the gene expression after exposure of Arabidopsis thaliana to increased concentrations of other metals.
DsrB gene-based DGGE for community and diversity surveys of sulfate-reducing bacteria.
Genome Survey and Characterization of Endophytic Bacteria Exhibiting a Beneficial Effect on Growth and Development of Poplar Trees
ABSTRACT The association of endophytic bacteria with their plant hosts has a beneficial effect for many different plant species. Our goal is to identify endophytic bacteria that improve the biomass
