Successes and limitations of phytotechnologies at field scale: outcomes, assessment and outlook from COST Action 859
PurposeMany agricultural and brownfield soils are polluted and more have become marginalised due to the introduction of new, risk-based legislation. The European Environment Agency estimates that
Helicobacter pylori HtrA is a new secreted virulence factor that cleaves E‐cadherin to disrupt intercellular adhesion
An entirely new function of HtrA is described and it is identified as a new secreted virulence factor from Helicobacter pylori, which cleaves the ectodomain of the cell‐adhesion protein E‐cadherin.

Analyzing the genetics of metal accumulation in these accumulator plants has been greatly enhanced through the wealth of tools and the resources developed for the study of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana such as transcript profiling platforms, protein and metabolite profiling, tools depending on RNA interference, and collections of insertion line mutants.
Absorption of atmospheric NO2 by spruce (Picea abies L. Karst.) trees
summary When spruce (Picea abies L., Karst.) branches were exposed to 5.2–18.7 nl NO2 l−1the flux to the shoots increased linearly with increasing NO2 concentrations. At NO2 concentrations below 2.6
Conjugating Enzymes Involved in Xenobiotic Metabolism of Organic Xenobiotics in Plants
Several prerequisites for pollutant uptake are summarized and information on conjugating detoxification reactions are discussed and the final fate of compounds is critically discussed and perspectives for phytoremediation are given.
The formation and fate of chlorinated organic substances in temperate and boreal forest soils
The present data on the apparently considerable size of the pool of OCls indicate its importance for the functioning of the forest soil system and its stability, but factors controlling their formation, degradation and transport are not clearly understood.
