91:715-721. This strategy has been used effectively in citrus crops, wheremaintaining the soil pH above 6.5 has been recommended for amelioration ofcopper toxicity (Koo et al., 1984). In contrast, activation of AtCOX17 gene expression in response to Cu treatment might be an indication of a function like metallothioneins. Science 283:996-998. Thus, plants require Cu as an essential micronutrient for normal growth and development; when this ion is not available plants develop specific deficiency symptoms, most of which affect young leaves and reproductive organs. (1995) observed conversion of the high potential (HP) form of Cyt b559 to the low potential (LP) form at high Cu concentrations. Plant Cell Physiol. Biochemical studies using membrane vesicles indicate that the substrate for 1B heavy-metal-transporting P-type ATPases is Cu(I) rather than Cu(II) (Voskoboinik et al., 2002). These are some questions of fundamental importance in plant biology, which underlie an area of research that is emerging now that the necessary molecular tools are available. 60:111-149. The CCS gene, homolog of the yeast LY7 gene, has been identified in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum; LeCCS) (Zhu et al., 2000), Arabidopsis thaliana (Wintz and Vulpe, 2002), and potato (Solanum tuberosum; StCCS) (Trindade et al., 2003). Cu acquisition and transport into and within cells is relatively little known in plants. 19:273-280. A possible role of metal transporters and chaperones in phytoremediation (defined as the use of green plants to remove pollutants from the environment or to render them harmless) has been proposed. Biochim. II. Many metal transporters in other organisms are regulated at the transcriptional level by extracellular metal concentrations via transcription factor proteins (Radisky, 1999). At the cellular level, Cu also plays an essential role in signaling of transcription and protein trafficking machinery, oxidative phosphorylation and iron mobilization.

On the PSII reducing side, the QB binding site (Mohanty et al., 1989) and the Pheo-Fe-QA domain (Yruela et al., 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996a) have been reported as the most sensitive sites for Cu toxicity. 118:441-69. In contrast, phytochelatins (PC) are a family of enzymatically-synthetized cysteine-rich peptides. COPPER TOXICITY IN PLANTS Although copper is an essential micronutrient, excess of copper might be toxic to plants. Tolerance to heavy metals in plants may be defined as the ability to survive in soils that are toxic to other plants and is manifested by an interaction between a genotype and its environment (Macnair et al., 2000).

The COX17 gene was recently isolated in Arabidopsis (AtCOX17). Bot. Photosynth. The present study investigated the toxicity effects of microcystin-LR (0, 5, 50, 500, 1000 μg L -1 ) and copper (0, 50, 500, 1000, 2000 μg L -1 ), both individually and in mixture, on the germination, growth and oxidative response of lettuce. (1997) proposed that Cu interacts not only with Tyrz, but also with TyrD on D2 protein. [ Links ], Tabata K, Kashiwagi S, Mori H, Ueguchi C, Mizuno T (1997) Cloning of a cDNA encoding a putative metal-transporting P-type ATPase from Arabidopsis thaliana. The ingestion of Cu-laced food crops is the key source of this heavy metal toxicity in humans. Biol. Cu increases susceptibility to photoinhibition in isolated thylakoids (Cedeño-Maldonado and Swader, 1972; Pätsikkä et al., 2001) or PSII-enriched membrane preparations (Yruela et al., 1996b). At the cellular level, toxicity may result from i) binding to sulfhydryl groups in proteins, thereby inhibiting enzyme activity or protein function; ii) induction of a deficiency of other essential ions; iii) impaired cell transport processes; iv) oxidative damage (van Assche and Clijsters, 1990; Meharg, 1994). Arch. Copper toxicity is a type of metal poisoning caused by an excess of copper in the body. Copper participates in numerous physiological processes and is an essential cofactor for many metalloproteins, however, problems arise when excess copper is present in cells.

The use of genetic and molecular techniques, such as sequence comparison to identify transporters and functional complementation of yeast mutants and plant transformation to regulate gene activities, has been crucial for the progress achieved in this area. 7:500-505. In particular, the interaction of metal chaperones with transporters deserves attention since this may have important implications for sequestration of metals within intracellular stores. Thus, further experimental support is necessary to establish the function of these proteins. This role is explained by the fact that ethylene receptors are Cu-dependent proteins (Rodríguez et al., 1999; Hiramaya and Alonso, 2000).

(2003) demonstrated that HMA6 (PAA1) is responsible for the delivery of Cu to chloroplasts, which provides the cofactor for the stromal enzyme Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (Cu/ZnSOD) and for the thylakoid lumen protein plastocyanin, two proteins involved in antioxidant enzymatic activity and photosynthetic electron transport function, respectively.

In particular photosynthetic electron transport is altered under both Cu deficiency and excess Cu conditions. Annu. Rev. High soil copper levels can occur as a result of excessive use of copper containing fungicides and industrial activity (such as mining). Copper (Cu) is an essential element for humans and plants when present in lesser amount, while in excessive amounts it exerts detrimental effects. Copper toxicity in plants can inhibit iron uptake and can also stunt growth. Recently, the RAN1 Cu-transporter has been found in Brassica napus (BnRAN1) (Southron et al., 2004). J. Biol. Biol. Plant Physiol. 66:797-800. In plants, Cu is an essential cofactor of numerous metalloproteins and is involved in several biochemical and physiological processes.

In particular, degradation of grana stacking and stroma lamellae, increase in the number and size of plastoglobuli, and appearance of intrathylakoidal inclusions were observed. Copper toxicity was damaging to plant roots, with symptoms ranging from disruption of the root cuticle and reduced root hair proliferation, to severe deformation of root structure.

Paa1 mutants have a high chlorophyll fluorescence phenotype arising from impaired photosynthetic electron transport apparently because of a deficiency in holoplastocyanin (Shikanai et al., 2003).

Both the acceptor and the donor sides of PSII were suggested as the main targets of Cu toxic action. (1996b) found that Cu decreased the level of the photoreduced Cyt b559 and slowed down its rate of photoreduction. Tolerance to high concentrations of metals in species and cultivars that can grow on metal-polluted soil could be achieved by a range of potential mechanisms at the cellular level that might be involved in detoxification.

The up- and down- regulation of genes directing those events involve a series of molecular mechanisms that begin with the plant "sensing" the deficiency and then transmitting the signal along transduction pathways through the plant vascular system. Toxicol. Toxic levels of Cu occur naturally in some soils whereas others may contain high levels of Cu as a result of the anthropogenic release of heavy metals into the environment through mining, smelting, manufacturing, agriculture and waste disposal technologies. Metallothioneins and phytochelatins are metal chelating molecules that may also play a role in Cu tolerance (Zhou and Goldsbrough, 1995; Rauser, 1995; Cobbet and Goldsbrough, 2002). 35:295-304. 20:291-310. 132:618-628.

Copper: metabolic function and toxicity Copper is required for plant nutrition only in trace amounts and at higher concentrations can be toxic to cells. Furthermore, lipid peroxidations, decreases of lipid content and changes in fatty acid composition of thylakoid membranes were observed (Sandmann and Böger, 1980; Luna et al., 1994; Maksymiec et al., 1994).

Accordingly, it was observed that excess Cu in plants led to oxidative stress inducing changes in the activity and content of some components of the antioxidative pathways (i.e., ascorbate peroxidase (APX), monodehydroascorbate reductase (MDHAR), dehydroascorbate reductase (DHAR), glutathione reductase (GR), superoxide dismutases (SODs), guiacol peroxidase) (De Vos et al., 1992; Luna et al., 1994; Stohs and Bagchi, 1995; Navari-Izzo et al., 1998; Gupta et al., 1999; Drazkiewicz et al., 2003; Wang et al., 2004).
