Identification of six differentially expressed genes in response to copper exposure in the aquatic plant Lemna gibba (Duckweed).

Aquatic plants are susceptible to metal pollution and provide an entry point for metals, such as copper, into the aquatic biosphere. Exposure of the aquatic plant Lemna gibba to copper has been associated with the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and oxidative damage, caused in large part by the ability of this metal to redox cycle. In particular… (More)
