Raphanus sativus L. cv. Rimbo was grown for 10 days after emergence in hydroponic culture containing 0.12 (control), 5, 10 and 15 micro M copper. The seeds were germinated in the presence of the copper solution. The Cu contents increased with the treatment in both shoots and roots, maintaining in the roots a value eight- to ten-fold higher than in the shoots. With the treatment both shoots and roots underwent growth inhibition and an increase in the percentage of dry weight. Membrane damage and… Expand
Betacyanin accumulation and guaiacol peroxidase activity in Beta vulgaris L. leaves following copper stress
The effect of copper stress on betacyanin accumulation and guaiacol peroxidase (GPOD) activity in leaves of different age was evaluated in red beet ( Beta vulgaris L. var. Crosby Egyptian) plants. InExpand
Antioxidative response of Atriplex codonocarpa to mercury
Abstract Seedlings of Atriplex codonocarpa were grown for 4 weeks in hydroponic culture containing 0, 0.05, 0.1 and 1 mg L −1 Hg. Mercury concentrations increased in both shoots and roots withExpand
Alleviation of adverse effects of copper on Allium cepa L. by Eexogenous Ascorbic acid application
In this study ameliorative effects of ascorbic acid (0.5 mM) on onion (Allium cepa L. cv. Red Azarshahr) under copper stress (Cu: 6.5 μM) were studied. Fresh weights of leaves and roots were reducedExpand
Effects of antimony on redox activities and antioxidant defence systems in sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) plants
Evidence is found for the development of a strong oxidative stress induced by Sb, with there being a clear imbalance in the content of the compounds that constitute the AsA/GSH cycle. Expand
Phenylalanine Ammonia-Lyase and Phenolic Compounds in Chamomile Tolerance to Cadmium and Copper Excess
Phenylalanine ammonia-lyase activity (PAL, EC, total phenolics, soluble proteins, malondialdehyde and metals accumulation in four-week old chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) plants cultivatedExpand
Changes of phenolic metabolism and oxidative status in nitrogen-deficient Matricaria chamomilla plants
The effects of nitrogen deficiency on selected physiological attributes, phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL, EC. activity, phenolic contents, peroxidase (EC. and catalase (EC.Expand
Physiological responses of fennel seedling to four environmental stresses
All four stresses on growth, pigment content, and antioxidant activity of fennel at the seedling stage were evaluated and resulted in a significant reduction of fresh and dry weights, and chlorophyll a and b and β-carotene content of seedlings. Expand
Induction of phenolic compounds in two dark-grown lentil cultivars with different tolerance to copper ions
The influence of a high copper sulphate concentration on growth, Cu accumulation, lipid peroxidation as well as on the contents of total phenolic compounds (PhC) and UV-absorbing compounds (UVAC) inExpand
Physiological responses of Matricaria chamomilla to cadmium and copper excess
A Cu dose of 120 μM can be considered as limiting for chamomile growth under conditions of present research, while resistance to high Cd doses was confirmed and PAL and phenolics seemed to play an important role in detoxification of Cd‐ and Cu‐induced oxidative stress. Expand
Phenolic compounds composition and physiological attributes of Matricaria chamomilla grown in copper excess
Abstract Four-week old plants of chamomile ( Matricaria chamomilla ) cultivated in nutrient solution were exposed to copper (3, 60 and 120 μM) for 10 days. At 120 μM, Cu decreased dry massExpand

Antioxidative Responses of Shoots and Roots of Wheat to Increasing NaCI Concentrations
Summary The effect of NaCl was studied in seedlings of two cvs. of Triticum durum Desf., differently sensitive to drought and to heavy metals (cv. Ofanto more tolerant than CV. Adamello). TheExpand
Relation between lipoic acid and cell redox status in wheat grown in excess copper
Cell redox status and lipoic acid contents were analysed in wheat (Triticum durum Desf. cv. Creso) plants treated with 150 μM Cu to elucidate the role of the antioxidant lipoic acid against oxidativeExpand
Antioxidative enzymes in two wheat cultivars, differently sensitive to drought and subjected to subsymptomatic copper doses
Summary Two wheat cultivars ( Triticum durum L. Desf.) differently sensitive to drought (cultivar Ofanto less sensitive than cultivar Adamello) were grown in a controlled environment withExpand
Thylakoid-bound and stromal antioxidative enzymes in wheat treated with excess copper
Copper is a catalyst in the formation of reactive free radicals and its toxicity may be due, at least in part, to oxidative damage. The response of thylakoid-bound and stromal antioxidative enzymesExpand
Induction of shikimate dehydrogenase and peroxidase in pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) seedlings in response to copper stress and its relation to lignification
Pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) plants growing in a nutrient solution with excess copper, showed an increase in shikimate dehydrogenase and peroxidase activities in the hypocotyl, and the role of these enzymes in phenolic metabolism under heavy metal stress is discussed. Expand
Glutathione Depletion Due to Copper-Induced Phytochelatin Synthesis Causes Oxidative Stress in Silene cucubalus.
It is concluded that copper tolerance in S. cucubalus does not depend on the production of phytochelatins but is related to the plant's ability to prevent glutathione depletion resulting from copper-induced phytOChelatin production, e.g. by restricting its copper uptake. Expand
