MANGANESE AS ESSENTIAL AND TOXIC ELEMENT FOR PLANTS: TRANSPORT, ACCUMULATION AND RESISTANCE MECHANISMS
Manganese is an essential element for plants, intervening in several metabolic processes, mainly in photosynthesis and as an enzyme antioxidant-cofactor. Nevertheless, an excess of this micronutrientExpand
Excess manganese differentially inhibits photosystem I versus II in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
The results demonstrate for the first time that PSI is the major target of Mn toxicity within the photosynthetic apparatus of Arabidopsis plants. Expand
Long-term Aluminum Exposure Effects on Physiological and Biochemical Features of Highbush Blueberry Cultivars
We compared the aluminum tolerance of two highbush blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) cultivars, Legacy and Bluegold, grown in a greenhouse in Hoagland's solution with increasing concentrations of AlExpand
Mn Toxicity Differentially Affects Physiological and Biochemical Features in Highbush Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum L.) Cultivars
Manganese (Mn) is an essential micronutrient for plants; however, in excess, it can have negative effects on their physiological and biochemical characteristics. We evaluate photosyntheticExpand
Early responses to manganese (Mn) excess and its relation to antioxidant performance and organic acid exudation in barley cultivars
Manganese (Mn) is an essential micronutrient for plants, and is necessary for biochemical and physiological processes. The objective of this research was to determine the early responses to Mn excessExpand
