Heavy metal stress in plants : from biomolecules to ecosystems
Metal Availability, Uptake, Transport and Accumulation in Plants.- Metal Speciation, Chelation and Complexing Ligands in Plants.- Metallothioneins, Metal Binding Complexes and Metal Sequestration inExpand
Cadmium toxicity and tolerance in vascular plants
Abstract Man and the biosphere are currently under an increasing threat of heavy metal pollution. Cadmium, in particular, is extremely toxic to humans as well as plants. Cd flow to humans is moreExpand
Copper toxicity in Ceratophyllum demersum L. (Coontail), a free floating macrophyte : Response of antioxidant enzymes and antioxidants
Abstract Copper-induced oxidative stress, response of antioxidative enzymes and substances were investigated in Ceratophyllum demersum L. (Coontail), a free floating macrophyte to understand theExpand
Modulation of glutathione and its related enzymes in plants’ responses to toxic metals and metalloids—A review
Abstract The rapid increase in the contamination of the environment by toxic metals (TMs) and metalloids is posing serious threats to biotic communities. Plants are among the organisms mostExpand
Lead(II) adsorption from aqueous solutions by raw and activated charcoals of Melocanna baccifera Roxburgh (bamboo)--a comparative study.
Melocanna baccifera (Poaceae) is the most abundant and economically important non-timber product in state of Mizoram, India. The communities of the region use this potential resource in many ways,Expand
Phytoremediation: green technology for the clean up of toxic metals in the environment
The contamination of the environment by toxic metals poses a threat for "Man and biosphere", reducing agricultural productivity and damaging the health of the ecosystem. In developed nations, thisExpand
Physiology and Biochemistry of Metal Toxicity and Tolerance in Plants
Contributors. Preface. Metal Permeability, Transport and Efflux in Plants E. Cseh. Glutathione and Thiol Metabolism in Metal Exposed Plants B. Tomaszewska. Metal Chelating Peptides and Proteins inExpand
Heavy metal-induced oxidative damage, defense reactions, and detoxification mechanisms in plants
Heavy metal (HMs) contamination is widespread globally due to anthropogenic, technogenic, and geogenic activities. The HMs exposure could lead to multiple toxic effects in plants by inducing reactiveExpand
Plants growing in abandoned mines of Portugal are useful for biogeochemical exploration of arsenic, antimony, tungsten and mine reclamation
Several plants across taxonomic hierarchy have evolved heavy metal tolerance strategies and detoxification mechanisms that enable them to survive, grow and reproduce in metal contaminated andExpand
Cadmium stress affects seed germination and seedling growth in Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench by changing the activities of hydrolyzing enzymes
Seed germination, one of the most important phases in the life cycle of a plant, is highly responsive to existing environment. Hydrolyzing enzymes play a major role in the mobilization of foodExpand
