Chatterjee J, Chatterjee C (2000) Phytotoxicity of cobalt, chromium and copper in cauliflower. During the positive root growth response, a tyrosine nitration-pattern reorganisation was observed; there were no substantial changes in ROS and RNS balance and the viability and proliferation of the root tips’ meristematic zone decreased to a lesser extent, as a result of a lower Zn uptake. Such problems are often, not economically correctable with conventional. In this study the effect of a low, growth-inducing, and a high, growth inhibiting Zn concentrations on the early development of Brassica napus (L.) root architecture and the underlying nitro-oxidative mechanisms were studied in a soil-filled rhizotron system. Cobalt interacts with other elements to, form complexes. Phyto-extraction is the most common method of phyto- remediation used for treatment of heavy metal … It is considered as one of the significant, pollutants due to its high toxicity and more solu-, bility in water.

It is clear that the capacity and activity of the antioxidative defence system are important in limiting oxidative damage and in destroying active oxygen species that are produced in excess of those normally required for metabolism.

Heavy metals, have the largest availability in soil and aquatic, ecosystems and to a relatively smaller proportion, in the atmosphere as particulate or vapors. HMs in high concentration lead to growth inhibition due to their phytotoxic effect by altering the most important plant physiological and metabolic processes, Soil is usually the most available growing medium for all kind of plants. High uptake of, and monocot plant species. Likewise, research in plant responses to metal contamination is sketchy. The advent of plant transformation has placed within our grasp the possibility of engineering greater stress tolerance in plants by enhancements of the antioxidative defence system.

Mechanism of Heavy-metal Tolerance: Plants adopt two main strategies to cope with excess heavy-metal ions, accumulated in their cells by detoxifying them which involve: (i) Combination or complexation of the toxic heavy-metal with organic compounds and . Plants have evolved many detoxification mechanisms over's the years either through evolution and natural selection, sequestering of metals in root zone, altering biochemical pathways and cyto-genetical make-up to restrict the passage of entry of toxic non-essential metals and to reduce the deleterious effects of bioaccumulated metals in plant life. in soils is of concern in agricultural production due to the adverse effects on food safety and marketability, Therefore, a study was performed with an aim to evaluate the effect of different organic amendments on bioaccumulation of potentially toxic elements in spinach grown on contaminated soils. Certain metals have no biological role, i.e. in plants from Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Kumar G, Singh RP, Sushila (1992) Nitrate assimilation, and biomass production in Seasamum indicum (L.), seedlings in lead enriched environment. Mechanism of heavy metal toxicity 4.1 Heavy metal-induced oxidative stress and oxidation of biological molecules Certain heavy metals are known to generate free radicals which may lead to oxidative stress and cause other cellular damages (see [ 22] for review). A few metals, including copper, manganese, iron, cobalt, zinc, and chromium, are, however, essential to plant metabolism in trace quantities. Various physiological and biochemical processes in plants are affected by metal toxicities. The term “heavy metals”, refers to any metallic element that has a rela-, tively high density and is toxic or poisonous, even at low concentration (Lenntech Water, metals” in a general collective term, which, applies to the group of metals and metalloids, five times or more, are greater than water, of the heavy metals are the most influencing, factors compared to their density. The pungency in peppers varies also with environment, genotype or cultivar, node position, fruiting and maturity stages, nitrogen and potassium contents. Heavy metal accumulation in soils is of concern in agricultural production due to the adverse effects on food safety, marketability and crop growth due to phytotoxicity, and environmental health of soil organisms.

Transition metals such as iron, electrons and are, therefore, very good catalysts. Once the, genetic control mechanisms of metal tolerance, are identified, it may be possible to combine, metal tolerance with other desirable traits to pro-, duce plants that are better adapted to soils pol-, luted with heavy metals.
