The spatial and temporal expression patterns of metallothionein (MT) isoforms MT1a and MT2a were investigated in vegetative and reproductive tissues of untreated and copper-treated Arabidopsis by in situ hybridization and by northern blotting. In control plants, MT1a mRNA was localized in leaf trichomes and in the vascular tissue in leaves, roots, flowers, and germinating embryos. In copper-treated plants, MT1a expression was also observed in the leaf mesophyll and in vascular tissue of… CONTINUE READING
