Aquaporins in Plants.
Aquaporins are membrane channels that facilitate the transport of water and small neutral molecules across biological membranes of most living organisms. In plants, aquaporins occur as multipleExpand

The Five AhMTP1 Zinc Transporters Undergo Different Evolutionary Fates towards Adaptive Evolution to Zinc Tolerance in Arabidopsis halleri
Gene duplication is a major mechanism facilitating adaptation to changing environments. From recent genomic analyses, the acquisition of zinc hypertolerance and hyperaccumulation charactersExpand

Identification of three relationships linking cadmium accumulation to cadmium tolerance and zinc and citrate accumulation in lettuce.
Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) is a plant species that shows high accumulation of cadmium, a toxic heavy metal. Lettuce is therefore a good model both for identifying determinants controlling cadmiumExpand

Phosphate and zinc transport and signalling in plants: toward a better understanding of their homeostasis interaction.
Inorganic phosphate (Pi) and zinc (Zn) are two essential nutrients for plant growth. In soils, these two minerals are either present in low amounts or are poorly available to plants. Consequently,Expand

Plant Defensin type 1 (PDF1): protein promiscuity and expression variation within the Arabidopsis genus shed light on zinc tolerance acquisition in Arabidopsis halleri.
Plant defensins are recognized for their antifungal properties. However, a few type 1 defensins (PDF1s) were identified for their cellular zinc (Zn) tolerance properties after a study of the metalExpand

A Potassium-Dependent Oxygen Sensing Pathway Regulates Plant Root Hydraulics
Aerobic organisms survive low oxygen (O2) through activation of diverse molecular, metabolic, and physiological responses. In most plants, root water permeability (in other words, hydraulicExpand

Calcium enhances cadmium tolerance and decreases cadmium accumulation in lettuce ( Lactuca sativa )
We aimed at characterizing mechanisms controlling cadmium accumulation in lettuce, which is a food crop showing one of the highest capacities to accumulate this toxic compound. In this study, plantsExpand

Genetic analysis of cadmium accumulation in lettuce (Lactuca sativa).
This work characterized mechanisms controlling cadmium (Cd) tolerance and accumulation in lettuce at both the physiological and genetic levels. These traits were evaluated in 18 Lactuca accessionsExpand
