Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are global environmental problem. To better understand the growth and physiological responses to atmospheric PAHs, we investigated biomass, photosynthetic machinery and antioxidant system in pakchoi, cucumber, flowering chinese cabbage, tomato and lettuce under various levels of phenanthrene (PHE) stress. Foliar exposure to PHE for 14d resulted in a dose dependent decrease in growth, photosynthesis and chlorophyll contents. With few exceptions… Expand
Enhanced photosynthetic capacity and antioxidant potential mediate brassinosteriod-induced phenanthrene stress tolerance in tomato.
TLDR
Results indicate that EBR alleviates shoot-imposed PHE phytotoxicity by maintaining a consistently higher photosynthetic capacity and antioxidant potential in tomato. Expand
Brassinosteroid improves seed germination and early development of tomato seedling under phenanthrene stress
TLDR
Seed treatment with EBR improved seed germination and increased length and FW of shoot and root of young tomato seedlings under PHE stress in tomato, and remarkably restored the studied chlorophyll fluorescence parameters towards control levels. Expand
Physiological and biochemical responses of Amaranthus cruentus to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon pollution caused by thermal power units
TLDR
Results are evident of the fact that severe depletion of nutraceutical resources of dietary plants can take place if subjected to oxidative stress arising from PAH pollution. Expand
Growth and antioxidant defense responses of wheat seedlings to di-n-butyl phthalate and di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate stress.
TLDR
Results indicated that PAEs could exert oxidative damage in the early development stage of wheat, particularly at higher concentrations, and the physicochemical properties of DBP rendered it more harmful than DEHP. Expand
Antioxidant responses of Annelids, Brassicaceae and Fabaceae to pollutants: a review.
TLDR
By exploiting the conservation observed between species and using molecular biology techniques, partially cloned missing candidates involved in oxidative stress and in metal detoxification in E. fetida, T. repens and B. oleracea. Expand
ROS-Scavenging Enzymes as an Antioxidant Response to High Concentration of Anthracene in the Liverwort Marchantia polymorpha L
TLDR
The results show that M. polymorpha under PAH stress condition activated two complementary physiological responses including the activation of antioxidant mechanisms and the accumulation of the pollutant within plant tissues to mitigate the damage to the photosynthetic apparatus. Expand
LcSABP2, a salicylic acid binding protein 2 gene from Lycium chinense, confers resistance to triclosan stress in Nicotiana tabacum.
TLDR
The results indicated that SABP2 played a positive regulatory role in plant response to TCS stress via increasing the endogenous SA levels, thus inducing the antioxidant and xenobiotics detoxification systems, which promoted T CS stress tolerance in tobacco plants. Expand
Reducing phenanthrene uptake and translocation, and accumulation in the seeds by overexpressing OsNRT2.3b in rice.
TLDR
The study highlighted the efficacy of overexpressing OsNRT2.3b in mitigating the Phe toxicity by attenuating its acquisition, mobilization, and allocation to the seeds. Expand
Role of brassinosteroid in plant adaptation to abiotic stresses and its interplay with other hormones.
TLDR
It is now clear that BRs-induced stress responses are strictly concentration dependent and the optimal concentration for improving the plant adaptability may vary depending on the plant species, developmental stages and environmental conditions as well. Expand

An oxidative stress response to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon exposure is rapid and complex in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
The hypothesis that oxidative stress is an important component of the PAH response in plants is supported. Expand
Brassinosteroid alleviates phenanthrene and pyrene phytotoxicity by increasing detoxification activity and photosynthesis in tomato.
TLDR
The results suggest that BR has an anti-stress effect on tomato seedlings contaminated with PHE or PYR and this effect is mainly attributed by increased detoxification activity. Expand

Abstract Omethoate is one of the most powerful insecticides in China. Despite its high risks of human health and environmental safety, omethoate is still hard to be replaced because of its low priceExpand
Chlortetracycline detoxification in maize via induction of glutathione S-transferases after antibiotic exposure.
TLDR
The results suggest that maize is able to detoxify chlortetracycline via the glutathione pathway, whereas pinto beans cannot, which may explain the observed stunted growth of pinto Beans after antibiotic treatment. Expand
Evaluation of fluoranthene phytotoxicity in pea plants by Hill reaction and chlorophyll fluorescence.
TLDR
The obtained results demonstrated that the higher concentration of FLT significantly inhibited the growth of the pea plants after 25 days of the application, also affected the content of photosynthetic pigments (chlorophyll a, b and carotenoids), and the primary photochemical processes of photosynthesis.

Redox Homeostasis and Antioxidant Signaling: A Metabolic Interface between Stress Perception and Physiological Responses
TLDR
Growing evidence suggests a model for redox homeostasis in which the reactive oxygen species (ROS)–antioxidant interaction acts as a metabolic interface for signals derived from metabolism and from the environment. Expand
Reactive oxygen species: metabolism, oxidative stress, and signal transduction.
TLDR
The mechanisms of ROS generation and removal in plants during development and under biotic and abiotic stress conditions are described and the possible functions and mechanisms for ROS sensing and signaling in plants are compared with those in animals and yeast. Expand
Negative effects of fluoranthene on the ecophysiology of tomato plants (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill) Fluoranthene mists negatively affected tomato plants.
TLDR
Tomato plants treated with fluoranthene showed severe visible injury symptoms on the foliage during the exposure period; thus, reactive oxygen species generated through fluoranhene may be responsible for the damaged tomato plants. Expand

TLDR
It was found that ANT affected plant biomass, especially root biomass, in the case of both foliar and soil application, and this compound underwent rapid chemical changes on the leaf surface under greenhouse conditions. Expand
