The present study was focused to recognize the changes in the Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L. variety PBNS-12), when exposed to different concentration of copper (25, 50 and 100 μM) along with control (0.5 μM) for 10 and 20 days. This experiment used Hoagland’s nutrient solution to meet the external nutrient conditions, which includes micro and macronutrients equivalent to soil solution with copper sulphate (CuSO4. 5H2O) as a metal stress. The plant samples were harvested after 10 and 20… 
Copper Toxicity on Photosynthetic Responses and Root Morphology of Hymenaea courbaril L. (Caesalpinioideae)
Copper (Cu) is a micronutrient essential for plant development. However, in excess, it is toxic to plants and may cause various physiological and morphological changes. The study of the growth of
Antioxidant responses and isoenzyme activity of hydroponically grown safflower seedlings under copper stress
Safflower is an oilseed rabi crop. Continuous use of use of copper (Cu) containing fungicides and pesticides, due to high susceptibility of this crop of fungal attack has increased the accumulation
Optimization of copper for the improvement of in vitro plant tissue growth of Solanum nigrum
Here was investigated the incorporation of copper in MS medium on growth, and metabolic activities of Solanum nigrum callus. Copper up to 75 µM increased the growth, and thereafter a decline was
Copper Tolerance and Accumulation on Pelargonium graveolens L’Hér. Grown in Hydroponic Culture
TLDR
The leaf tissues of Cu-treated P. graveolens may be safely used for the extraction of bioactive molecules and at Cu concentrations up to 100 μM, biomass production was preserved and was accompanied by an increase in phenolics and antioxidant capacity.
EVALUATION OF THE EFFECT OF CHELATE CU COMPLEX AT DIFFERENT CONCENTRATIONS ON IN VITRO ROOT OF TWO VARIETIES OF GRAPE
This study was carried out to evaluate the impact of supplement 1⁄2 MS medium (without CuSO4* H2O) with chelated Cu at the different concentrations (0.01, 0.015, 0.02 and 0.025 mg/l) on In vitro
Copper toxicity and date palm (Phoenix dactylifera) seedling tolerance: Monitoring of related biomarkers
TLDR
Observations provide a new insight into date palm cell response to Cu, a metal that can be toxic but that is also an essential element.
The Role of NO in the Amelioration of Heavy Metal Stress in Plants by Individual Application or in Combination with Phytohormones, Especially Auxin
Since the time of the Industrial Revolution, the accumulation of various heavy metals (HMs), such as cadmium (Cd), arsenic (As), lead (Pb), chromium (Cr), mercury (Hg), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), nickel
Influence of Selenium on Growth, Physiology, and Antioxidant Responses in Maize Varies in a Dose-Dependent Manner
There is a very narrow margin in selenium deficiency and toxicity although it is an important element for humans, animals, and plants. Effects of selenium (Se) on the growth and physiomorphological
Ameliorative Role of Castasterone on Copper Metal Toxicity by Improving Redox Homeostasis in Brassica juncea L.
The transition metal elements like copper act as double-edged sword for living cells. Cu, a redox active metal, is essential for various biological processes, but at higher concentrations it leads to

Antioxidant enzymes as bio-markers for copper tolerance in safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.).
TLDR
These antioxidant enzymes served as good predictors for the evaluation of heavy metal tolerance and restricted transfer of the metal to the foliage and enhanced activity of peroxidase, catalase and superoxide dismutase may be of great significance for scavenging oxidative stress caused by excessive copper in safflower plants.
Effects of copper on chlorophyll, proline, protein and abscisic acid level of sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) seedlings.
TLDR
It was observed that the level of chlorophyll (a+b) and total protein remarkably decreased as copper concentration increased to 0.6 mM, although the levels of proline and abscisic acid in the leaves of plants were increased--a dose-depended behavior.

TLDR
The stimulatory effect of Cu +2 on the biosynthesis of free amino acids, proline and antioxidant enzyme activities could serve as important components of antioxidative defense mechanism against Cu 2+ toxicity.
