|Issue Date:||2006||Publisher:||Elsevier||Source:||PLANT PHYSIOLOGY AND BIOCHEMISTRY, 44(11-12). p. 795-805||Abstract:||The present study aimed to analyze the biological effects induced by bioaccumulation of uranium in Phaseolus vulgaris. Ten-day-old seedlings were exposed to 0, 0.1, 1, 10, 100 and 1000 mu M U in diluted Hoagland solution. Following 1, 2, 4 and 7 days' exposure, plants were monitored for uranium uptake, biometric parameters, capacities of enzymes involved in the anti-oxidative defense mechanisms (GPOD, SPOD, GLUR, SOD, ICDH, G-6P-DH), glutathione (GSH) pool and DNA integrity. Uranium contents were up to 900-fold higher in roots (31-14,916 mg kg(-1) FW following 7 days' exposure to 0.1 and 1000 mu M U, respectively) as compared to primary leaves (1-16 mg kg(-1) FW following||Document URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/1942/1544||ISSN:||0981-9428||e-ISSN:||1873-2690||DOI:||10.1016/j.plaphy.2006.10.013||ISI #:||000243445700021||Category:||A1||Type:||Journal Contribution||Validations:||ecoom 2008|
