SummaryArabidopsis seeds were sown aseptically on mineral media containing between 0 and 90% of heavy water (D2O). Initially, a D2O level of over 50% was lethal for the plants. However, after culture for six successive generations on 50% D2O, plants were capable of growing marginally on media containing up to 70% D2O, but not higher. With increasing concentration, deuterium progressively delays germination, slows growth, reduces survival, results in bleaching of the leaves and delays flowering…

Production of deuterated switchgrass by hydroponic cultivation
AbstractMain conclusionThe bioenergy crop switchgrass was grown hydroponically from tiller cuttings in 50 % D2O to obtain biomass with 34 % deuterium substitution and physicochemical properties
Development of approaches for deuterium incorporation in plants.
TLDR
Cultivation in 50% D2O of annual ryegrass and switchgrass following establishment of roots by growth in H2O produces samples with normal morphology and 30-40% deuterium incorporation in the biomass, and changes in infrared (IR) absorption observed for H to D substitution in hydroxyl and alkyl groups provide rapid initial evaluation of incorporation.
Effect of D2O on growth properties and chemical structure of annual ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum).
TLDR
A method for optimized production of deuterated annual ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) was developed by growing the plants in 50% D2O in perfused hydroponic chambers and deuterium incorporation was found in the annual rye.
New prenyllipid metabolites identified in Arabidopsis during photo-oxidative stress.
TLDR
The gene expression analysis showed that vte2 gene is most pronouncedly up-regulated among the prenyllipid biosynthetic genes under high light and induction of its expression is mainly caused by an increased level of singlet oxygen, as was demonstrated in experiments with D2 O-treated plants under excess light conditions.

TLDR
The results suggest that the change in the biological reaction kinetics in the cell due to D2O may modify the stress tolerance of S. Typhimurium.
Ultrastructure and Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Deuterated Switchgrass
TLDR
Transmission electron microscopy showed differences in lignin distribution and packing of fibers in the cell walls that apparently increased surface area of cellulose in deuterated switchgrass, increasing cellulose accessibility and lowering its recalcitrance.
Deuterium incorporation in biomass cell wall components by NMR analysis.
A commercially available deuterated kale sample was analyzed for deuterium incorporation by ionic liquid solution (2)H and (1)H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). This protocol was found to
Enthalpic stabilization of an SH3 domain by D2O
TLDR
A complete thermodynamic analysis of the reversible, two‐state, thermal unfolding of the metastable, 7‐kDa N‐terminal src‐homology 3 domain of the Drosophila signal transduction protein drk in H2O and D2O using one‐dimensional 19F NMR spectroscopy is reported.
Environmental Comprehensive Multiphase NMR
Comprehensive multiphase (CMP)-NMR spectroscopy provides the ability to study all bonds in all phases in natural, unaltered samples. CMP-NMR probes comprise a lock, magic-angle gradients, magic-angle

Studies on Induction of Mutations by Chemicals. I. Experiments with Heavy Water (Deuterium Oxide)
TLDR
It is concluded that the deuterium in the gene molecule did not change its structure or else that this structure was temporarily changed but reverted to the original form whenDeuterium was eliminated from the organism.
Deuterium isotope effects in cytology.
TLDR
The differences in deuterium response, to a considerable extent, are a reflection of the fundamental differences between plant and animal cells.

Deuterium oxide was incorporated into the culture medium at concentrations of 10 or 20%. These concentrations had no apparent effect on recessive lethal production or nondisjunction, nor was mitotic
EFFECTS OF PARTIAL DEUTERATION ON TRANSFORMING DNA OF PNEUMOCOCCUS.
TLDR
After several months of storage of partially purified DNA preparations, the residual biological activity is found to be associated with the least deuterated DNA molecules, which is not a suitable material for experiments designed to study the fate of incorporated DNA in transformation.
FURTHER STUDIES ON STERILITY PRODUCED IN MALE MICE BY DEUTERIUM OXIDE
TLDR
It is suggested that changes in physical forces that bind macromolecules are produced by the substitution of deuterium for hydrogen, which may result in abnormal genetic material in developing sperm.

It was concluded that the immediate effects of D2O in depressing the rates of growth and glucose catabolism were due to inhibition of glucose and phosphate uptake.
