SUMMARY Medicago sativa is an excellent pasture legume, but it is very sensitive to aluminium (Al) toxicity. To better understand the mechanism of M. sativa sensitivity to Al, a forward suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) cDNA library for an Al-sensitive cultivar, M. sativa L. cv. Yumu No. 1 (YM1), under 5 μm Al stress over a 24 h period was constructed to analyse changes in its gene expression in response to Al stress. Sequence analysis for the SSH cDNA library generated 291 high… Expand
Physiological and transcriptional responses of broad bean (Vicia faba L.) leaves to aluminium stress
Summary Aluminium (Al) toxicity is the major factor-limiting crop productivity in acid soils. In the present study, physiological and transcriptional responses of broad bean leaves to Al stress wereExpand
Physiological and molecular responses of broad bean (Vicia faba L.) to aluminum stress
TLDR
It is suggested that Al-enhanced expressions and interactions of the PM H+-ATPase and 14-3-3 proteins might be involved in the regulation of citrate secretion in YD roots under Al stress. Expand
Identification and evaluation of excess nitrate-responsive genes in celery (Apium graveolens L.) roots
TLDR
An analysis of the physiological changes in celery roots indicated that hydrogen peroxide and malondialdehyde levels increased rapidly under the 100 mM total nitrate stress treatment, and the expression of genes encoding peroxidase, glutamine synthetase, and a proline-rich protein (PRP) were up-regulated.

Physiological and transcriptional analysis of the effects of aluminum stress on Cryptococcus humicola
TLDR
The exposure to 20 mM Al led to a clear increase in malondialdehyde content and a significant decrease in the levels of protein carbonyls, suggesting that Al stress caused oxidative damage to membrane lipids but not to proteins. Expand
Overexpression of MsALMT1, from the Aluminum-Sensitive Medicago sativa, Enhances Malate Exudation and Aluminum Resistance in Tobacco
TLDR
It is demonstrated that MsALMT1 is an Al-resistant gene in YM1 and encodes a malate transporter, the overexpression of which effectively enhances the Al resistance of transgenic tobacco plants. Expand
The ALMT Gene Family Performs Multiple Functions in Plants
The aluminium activated malate transporter (ALMT) gene family is named after the first member of the family identified in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The product of this gene controls resistance toExpand
Heterologous Expression of a Glycine soja C2H2 Zinc Finger Gene Improves Aluminum Tolerance in Arabidopsis
TLDR
Analysis of hematoxylin staining indicated that GsGIS3 enhanced the resistance of transgenic plants to Al toxicity by reducing Al accumulation in Arabidopsis roots by upregulated under AlCl3, NaCl or GA3 treatment. Expand
GsMATE encoding a multidrug and toxic compound extrusion transporter enhances aluminum tolerance in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
GSMATE is responsive to aluminum stress and may participate in the regulation of sensitivity to Al toxicity in Arabidopsis, and the GsMATE protein is an Al-induced citrate transporter of the MATE family and exerts an essential role in Al tolerance in Glycine soja. Expand
Overexpression of a peroxidase gene (AtPrx64) of Arabidopsis thaliana in tobacco improves plant’s tolerance to aluminum stress
TLDR
Results showed that overexpression of AtPrx64 gene might enhance the tolerance of tobacco to Al stress and increase the root growth and reduced the accumulation of Al and ROS in the roots. Expand
Physiological and Molecular Analysis of Aluminium-Induced Organic Acid Anion Secretion from Grain Amaranth (Amaranthus hypochondriacus L.) Roots
TLDR
Al-induced OA secretion in grain amaranth roots was characterized by ion charomatography and enzymology methods, and suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) together with quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) was used to identify up-regulated genes that are potentially involved in OA gland secretion.

Characterization of aluminium‐induced citrate secretion in aluminium‐tolerant soybean (Glycine max) plants
TLDR
Observations suggest that the shoots play a role in Al-induced citrate secretion, although shoots may not supply citrate for the secretion upon Al treatment, it seems that they may provide the carbon source and/or energy for citrate synthesis in the root. Expand
