Subcellular distribution and chemical forms of cadmium in Bechmeria nivea (L.) Gaud.
Abstract Bechmeria nivea (L.) Gaud. (Ramie) is a promising species for Cd phytoextraction with large biomass and fast growth rate. Nevertheless, little information is available on its tolerance… Expand
Pedological characteristics of Mn mine tailings and metal accumulation by native plants.
In southern China revegetation and ecological restoration of many abandoned Mn tailings has become a major concern. To determine the major constraints for plant establishment and evaluate the… Expand
Characterization and genomic analysis of kraft lignin biodegradation by the beta-proteobacterium Cupriavidus basilensis B-8
BackgroundLignin materials are abundant and among the most important potential sources for biofuel production. Development of an efficient lignin degradation process has considerable potential for… Expand
Cadmium-induced oxidative stress and response of the ascorbate-glutathione cycle in Bechmeria nivea (L.) Gaud.
Bechmeria nivea (L.) Gaud. (ramie) seedlings subjected to a series of cadmium (Cd) concentrations (0, 1, 3 and 7 mg l(-1)) over a 10d period were investigated with regard to the uptake and… Expand
