- ... BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Ethylene-insensitive mutation (ein)-conferred Arabidopsis tolerance to Cd has been reported. However, the mechanisms involved are far from clear. This study explores possible mechanisms. METHODS: Arabidopsis wild-type (WT), and ein2–1, npr1–1 (nonexpressor of PR gene 1), and npr1–1/ein2–1 (abbreviated to n1e2) were exposed to 50 μM CdCl₂ for 48 h or 7 d (just for assessment of ...

- ... BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Although aluminum (Al) exclusion via root exudation of organic matters is a common resistance mechanism adopted by many plant species, whether root exudation of benzoxazinoids, such as hydroxamic acids (HAs), confers Al resistance remains unclear. METHODS: We performed physiological characterization for an Al-resistant maize cultivar TY and a sensitive maize cultivar ZD. RESUL ...
