Copper is both a nutrient and an environmental toxin that is taken up by plants. In order to determine the subcellular localization of copper and to assess the resulting metabolic changes, we exposed 14-day-old bean seedlings to nutrient solutions containing varying concentrations of Cu2+ ions for 3 days. Biochemical analyses revealed that the cell wall was… CONTINUE READING
