Signaling responses in plants to heavy metal stress

  title={Signaling responses in plants to heavy metal stress},
  author={Waldemar Maksymiec},
  journal={Acta Physiologiae Plantarum},
Heavy metal toxicity is one of the major abiotic stresses leading to hazardous health effects in animals and plants. Because of their high reactivity they can directly influence growth, senescence and energy synthesis processes. In this review a new indirect mechanism of heavy metal action is proposed. This mechanism is connected with the generation of reactive oxygen species (especially H2O2) and jasmonate and ethylene signaling pathways and shows that toxicity symptoms observed in plants may… CONTINUE READING
