The Zn/Cd hyperaccumulating ecotype (HE) of Sedum alfredii Hance can accumulate 24- and 28-fold higher leaf and stem Zn concentrations when compared with the non-hyperaccumulating ecotype (NHE) of Sedum. Heterologous expression of a metal tolerance protein (MTP1) encoding gene from HE plants (SaMTP1) or the homologous gene from NHE plants (SnMTP1) suppressed Zn(2+) hypersensitivity in the Δzrc1...

Protoplasts (2 x 10(7)/g fresh wt) were isolated from leaves of A. thaliana ecotype estland, with a viability of more than 90%. Protoplasts cultured in calcium alginate beads or layers showed division while culture in liquid or agarose beads failed to elicit any division. Effect of culture density showed highest frequency of division occurring at 5 x 10(5) while no division was seen when cultur...
