Metabolic adaptations to arsenic-induced oxidative stress in Pteris vittata L and Pteris ensiformis L
Abstract This study examined the metabolic adaptations of Pteris vittata L, an arsenic hyperaccumulator, under arsenic stress as compared to Pteris ensiformis, a non-arsenic hyperaccumulator. BothExpand

Antioxidant responses of hyper-accumulator and sensitive fern species to arsenic.
Plant species capable of hyper-accumulating heavy metals are of considerable interest for phytoremediation, and differ in their ability to accumulate metals from the environment. This work aims toExpand

Effects of selenium on arsenic uptake in arsenic hyperaccumulator Pteris vittata L.
Selenium (Se) is a non-metallic element, which has the capability to increase the antioxidative capacity and stress tolerance of plants to heavy metals. Plants vary considerably in theirExpand

Effect of fertilizer amendments on phytoremediation of Cd-contaminated soil by a newly discovered hyperaccumulator Solanum nigrum L.
Phytoremediation is a cost-effective, simple and sustainable beneficiary technique to purify the polluted environment. Solanum nigrum L., a newly found cadmium (Cd) hyperaccumulator, has shown theExpand

Arsenic hyperaccumulation in the Chinese brake fern (Pteris vittata) deters grasshopper (Schistocerca americana) herbivory.
Brake fern, Pteris vittata, not only tolerates arsenic but also hyperaccumulates it in the frond. The hypothesis that arsenic hyperaccumulation in this fern could function as a defense against insectExpand

Comparison of arsenic accumulation in 18 fern species and four Pteris vittata accessions.
This study evaluated the ability and mechanisms of 19 Pteris and non-Pteris species to accumulate arsenic (As) in a hydroponic system spiked with 300 microM As. The study included four Pteris vittataExpand

Effect of phenolic compounds on growth and ligninolytic enzyme production in Botryosphaeria isolates
Abstract Botryosphaeria spp. are ligninolytic ascomyceteous fungi that incite many diseases in economically important woody plant species. Four Botryosphaeria isolates, Botryosphaeria rhodina (Expand
