Genetic Aspects of Tolerance and Accumulation

Metal tolerance and accumulation are complex genetic systems. Data from many species show that different genes organised in complex regulatory networks are responsible for these traits. Nonetheless, experiments with mutants, crosses, and reverse genetics approaches also demonstrate that specific genes can play major roles in determining the traits. These experiments have elucidated the specific roles of gene functions and of gene products, thus contributing to our understanding of the complex phenomenon.
