To investigate the effects of two cadmium-tolerant bacteria, Staphylococcus pasteuri (S. pasteuri X1) and Agrobacterium tumefaciens (A. tumefaciens X2), on cadmium uptake by the cadmium hyperaccumulator plant Beta vulgaris var. [] Key Result The results demonstrated that both cadmium-tolerant bacteria enhanced the dry weight of Beta vulgaris var. cicla L. The total dry weights of plants in the control CK20, S. pasteuri X1 and A. tumefaciens X2 treatments were 0.85, 1.13, and 1.38 g/pot, respectively…
Cadmium-tolerant bacteria induce metal stress tolerance in cereals
Bacterial inoculation significantly reduced the suppressive effect of Cd on cereal growth and physiology and belonged to the genera Klebsiella, Stenotrophomonas, Bacillus and Serratia.
Bioremediation Of Cadmium Contaminated Soil With The Help Of Organic Manures
Growth, yield and physiology of both cereals were rigorously affected by the exogenous application of Cd, however, performance of wheat and maize improved with the application of different BOA under non-stressed and Cd stressed conditions.
Phytoremediation of Cadmium Contaminated Soil Using Sesbania sesban L. in Association with Bacillus anthracis PM21: A Biochemical Analysis
Sustainable food production to feed nine to 10 billion people by 2050 is one of the greatest challenges we face in the 21st century. Due to anthropogenic activities, cadmium (Cd) contamination is
Microbially assisted phytoremediation approaches for two multi-element contaminated sites
This study found that on the Swedish mixed substrate, due to its toxicity, with 30 % bark compost, A. capillaris inoculated with the respective consortium was able to extract multi-metal contaminants, although usually grasses are considered metal excluder species.
Improving the phytoextraction capacity of plants to scavenge metal(loid)-contaminated sites
Plants are able to extract metal(loid) contaminants from the soil or water through their roots and translocate them to harvestable aerial shoots. Of late, this plant potential has been used as a
Role of Burkholderia cepacia CS8 in Cd-stress alleviation and phytoremediation by Catharanthus roseus
The current study exhibits that B. cepacia CS8 improves stress alleviation and phytoextraction potential of C. roseus plants growing under Cd stress.


Cadmium Hyperaccumulator Beta vulgaris var.cicla L. and Its Accumulating Characteristics
Investigation of the characteristics of accumulating Cd by seven crops showed that Beta vulgaris var.cicla L. was a cadmium hyperaccumulator and could be applied to phytoremediate Cd-contaminated soils.
The role of bacteria on heavy-metal extraction and uptake by plants growing on multi-metal-contaminated soils
Results show that bacteria play an important role in increasing metal availability in soil, thus enhancing Cr, Pb, Zn and Cu accumulation by Z. mays and S. bicolor.
Effects of bacteria on enhanced metal uptake of the Cd/Zn-hyperaccumulating plant, Sedum alfredii.
The secretion of organic acids appears to be a functional metal resistance mechanism that chelates the metal ions extracellularly, reducing their uptake and subsequent impacts on root physiological processes.
Characterization of plant growth promoting rhizobacteria isolated from polluted soils and containing 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate deaminase.
The results suggest that plant growth promoting rhizobacteria containing ACC deaminase are present in various soils and offer promise as a bacterial inoculum for improvement of plant growth, particularly under unfavourable environmental conditions.
The role of arbuscular mycorrhiza on change of heavy metal speciation in rhizosphere of maize in wastewater irrigated agriculture soil.
The results might indicate that mycorrhiza could protect its host plants from the phytotoxicity of excessive copper, zinc and lead by changing the speciation from bio-available to the non-bio-available form.
Endophytic Fungus Improves Growth and Metal Uptake of Lolium Arundinaceum Darbyshire Ex. Schreb.
Although the total Cd accumulation in EI tall fescue was insufficient for practical phytoextraction applications, the observed high biomass production and tolerance of stress from abiotic factors including heavy metals, gives endophyte/plant associations the potential to be a model forendophyte-assisted phytoremediation of metal-polluted soils.
Development of Heavy Metal-Resistant Mutants of Phosphate Solubilizing Pseudomonas sp. NBRI 4014 and Their Characterization
The persistence and stability of mutants were evident in rhizospheric soil, thus their exploitation for polluted/contaminated sites was supported and their PGPR properties were supported.
