- ... Despite soybean (Glycine max L.) is often cultivated in areas contaminated with arsenic (As) which causes deleterious effects on its growth, little is known about tolerance mechanisms in response to As exposure. In particular, glutathione (GSH) (γ-glutamyl-cysteinyl-glycine) has antioxidant properties and is precursor of phytochelatin (PCs) synthesis, thus its role in As-treated plants would be re ...
