Effect of arsenic on growth, oxidative stress, and antioxidant system in rice seedlings.
The physiological, biochemical, and proteomic changes in germinating rice seedlings were investigated under arsenic stress. A marked decrease in germination percentage, shoot, and root elongation asExpand

Changes in activities of cell wall hydrolases during ethylene-induced ripening in banana: effect of 1-MCP, ABA, and IAA
Abstract Softening during ripening in climacteric fruit is generally attributed to degradation in cell wall assembly, particularly the solublization of pectin. These changes could involve increasedExpand

Phytochelatins and antioxidant systems respond differentially during arsenite and arsenate stress in Hydrilla verticillata (L.f.) Royle.
Serious contamination of aquatic systems by arsenic (As) in different parts of the world calls for the development of an in situ cost-effective phytoremediation technology. In the presentExpand

Lead bioaccumulation potential of an aquatic macrophyte Najas indica are related to antioxidant system.
Plants of Najas indica bioaccumulated significantly higher amounts of Pb (3554 microg g(-1) dw) when, exposed to varying concentrations of Pb(NO(3))(2).This also led to increased malondialdehydeExpand

Recent advances in arsenic accumulation and metabolism in rice
Arsenic is commonly present in subsoil and is a carcinogen in humans. Rice takes up arsenic and it accumulates in different plant parts, including grains, at levels several-fold higher than the soil.Expand

Comparative transcriptome analysis of arsenate and arsenite stresses in rice seedlings.
The effect of arsenic (As) exposure on genome-wide expression was examined in rice (Oryza sativa L., ssp. Indica). A group of defense and stress-responsive genes, transporters, heat-shock proteins,Expand

Ripening of fleshy fruit: molecular insight and the role of ethylene.
Development and ripening in fruit is a unique phase in the life cycle of higher plants which encompasses several stages progressively such as fruit development, its maturation, ripening and finallyExpand

Thiol metabolism and antioxidant systems complement each other during arsenate detoxification in Ceratophyllum demersum L.
Ceratophyllum demersum L. is known to be a potential accumulator of arsenic (As), but mechanisms of As detoxification have not been investigated so far. In the present study, we analyzed theExpand

Modulated gene expression in newly synthesized auto-tetraploid of Papaver somniferum L.
Abstract Autopolyploidy is advantageous for plant metabolism in terms of elevated rates of synthesis or a higher variability of metabolically relevant compounds. In the present study, successfulExpand
