Plants are frequently exposed to natural and synthetic toxins such as heavy metals, allelochemicals, organic pollutants, and pesticides. Consequently, plants must mount specific and coordinated defense mechanisms for survival under adverse growing conditions (Zhang et al., 2007). One such mechanism is the capability for metabolizing organic compounds from abiotic origin (xenobiotics). Extensive biotransformation is part of a strategy for coping with the potentially negative impacts of… CONTINUE READING
