Ecophysiological tolerance of Elodea canadensis to nickel exposure.
Biological accumulation of nickel and concomitant ecophysiological responses were studied in the leaves of Elodea canadensis treated with different concentrations of Ni (1-50 microM) for 5d. In lowExpand
Effect of heavy metals on photosynthetic apparatus and antioxidant status of elodea
Elodea plants (Elodea (Egeria) densa Planch.) were incubated in the presence of individual and mixed 1 μM sulfate salts of Ni, Cd, Cu, Zn, and Mn to study the influence of heavy metals (HM) on shootExpand
Urea increased nickel and copper accumulation in the leaves of Egeria densa (Planch.) Casp. and Ceratophyllum demersum L. during short-term exposure.
In the present study, two fresh water plant species Egeria densa (Planch.) Casp. and Ceratophyllum demersum L. were subjected to separate and combined action of urea (2mМ) and metals (Ni and Cu,Expand
Identification and characterization of Cd-induced peptides in Egeria densa (water weed): Putative role in Cd detoxification.
Egeria densa has ability to grow in heavy metal contaminated and polluted bodies of water. Shoots exposed to Cd at concentrations up to 300microM for 7 days showed a pronounced decrease inExpand
Copper Toxicity in Leaves of Elodea canadensis Michx.
Elodea canadensis (Canadian waterweed) has an ability to accumulate and bioconcentrate heavy metals. In this work, selected cellular responses for Cu treatment were studied in leaves of E.Expand
Photosynthetic Metabolism and Activity of Carboxylating Enzymes in Emergent, Floating, and Submersed Leaves of Hydrophytes
Radioisotope techniques were used to compare photosynthetic CO2 fixation, activities of carboxylating enzymes, and the composition of photosynthates in 42 species of aquatic plants (emergent,Expand
Toxic metal(loid)s contamination and potential human health risk assessment in the vicinity of century-old copper smelter, Karabash, Russia
Active smelters release high concentration of multiple toxic metal(loid)s into the environment, degrading the soil cover and posing high risks to human health. The present study investigates Cu alongExpand
The Response of Hydrophytes to Environmental Pollution with Heavy Metals
The effects of Cu2+, Cd2+, and Ni2+ at low and high concentrations (0.025 and 0.25 mg/ml) on the accumulation capacity, the state of the pigment complex, and photosynthesis rate have been studied inExpand
Responses of Lemna trisulca L. (Duckweed) exposed to low doses of cadmium: thiols, metal binding complexes, and photosynthetic pigments as sensitive biomarkers of ecotoxicity
Lemna species are reported to accumulate a variety of metals from contaminated/polluted sites. Cadmium is a nonessential element for plant metabolism. In this work, we aimed to investigateExpand
Thiols as biomarkers of heavy metal tolerance in the aquatic macrophytes of Middle Urals, Russia
ABSTRACT Aquatic macrophytes, viz. Sagittaria sagittifolia L., Lemna gibba L., Elodea canadensis Michx., Batrachium trichophyllum (Chaix.) Bosch., Ceratophyllum demersum L. and Potamogeton sp. (P.Expand
