Abstract:
Impact of inoculation of wheat seeds with endophytic strains of B. subtilis bacterium on revealing cadmium phytotoxicity of the plants was investigated. It was shown that, in the presence of Cd in the plants whose seeds were inoculated with the above bacteria, the activities of catalase and peroxidase and the content of nonprotein thiols were increased, while an intensity of lipid peroxidation decreased. Moreover, inoculation of plant seeds with the bacteria contributed to lowering the metal content in plant shoots.
