- ... Cement dust is a major particulate air pollutants and can cause negative impacts on plant growth and development. The molecular bases of plant responses to cement dust are not elucidated. Therefore, a transcriptome analysis of Arabidopsis in response to cement dust was performed. In the present study, seedlings of Arabidopsis thaliana were exposed to cement dust at a rate of 1.5 g per 1 m² area. T ...
