Hairy roots were used to investigate cadmium uptake by Thlaspi caerulescens, a metal hyperaccumulator plant with potential applications in phytoremediation and phytomining. Experiments were carried out in nutrient media under conditions supporting root growth. Accumulation of Cd in short-term (9-h) experiments varied with initial medium pH and increased after treating the roots with H(+)-ATPase inhibitor. The highest equilibrium Cd content measured in T. caerulescens roots was 62,800 microg g… CONTINUE READING
