The genetic basis of metal hyperaccumulation in plants

Abstract:

A relatively small yet diverse group of plants are capable of sequestering metals in their shoot tissues at remarkably high concentrations that would be toxic to most organisms. This process, known as metal hyperaccumulation, is of interest for several reasons, including its relevance to the phytoremediation of metalpolluted soils. Most research on hyperaccumulators has focused on the physiological mechanisms of metal uptake, transport, and sequestration, but relatively little is known regard...
