Phytochelatins are small, intracellular, metal-binding polypeptides produced by algae on exposure to increased metal concentration in their environment. The aim of the present study was to examine the relationship between phytochelatin concentration, bioaccumulated metal, and sensitivity of algal growth on cadmium exposure. For that purpose, intracellular cadmium concentration and thiol (glutathione, gamma-glutamylcysteine [gammaGluCys], and phytochelatins [PCn]) content were determined in the… CONTINUE READING
