Absorption of Cadmium and Lead Ions by Gametophyte of the MossPlagiomnium undulatum

Absorption of Cadmium and Lead Ions by Gametophyte of the MossPlagiomnium undulatum A cytochemical analysis of heavy-metal distribution was used to establish an increased ability of the marginal and midrib cells of moss leaves to accumulate metal ions from solutions of lead and cadmium nitrate. The adjacent leaf cells accumulated metal ions more slowly. As shown by the color reaction produced by metal–dithizone complex, the concentration of the absorbed metal ions in the cells increased more than 100-fold as compared to the salt concentration in the solution. The morphological differentiation of the marginal and midrib cells was closely related to the cytosolic pH value and the absorption capacity of cells. Metal ions absorbed in excess of the capacity of absorption sites were not bound by cells and readily washed out. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Plant Physiology Springer Journals
