Genetically Modified Organisms in phytoremediation of organic contamination

Abstract:

In order to increase remediation potential of the plants used for recultivation of contaminated environment, attempts are being made to increase their tolerance, accumulation and degradation of particular pollutants. The plants are modified by conventional methods of reproduction, hybridization, formation of interspecies hybrids, as well as by genetic modification. Owing to the introduction of foreign genes, the produced plants show increased or decreased activity of the desired metabolic pathways, higher biomass and growth, and increased activity of the enzymes limiting phytoremediation of particular xenobiotics or the presence of relatively new biochemical properties. The paper discusses the latest results of plant modification at the level of natural metabolic pathways, transgenic plants with new properties, genetic modifications of endophytes and application of immunomodulation that increases protection against xenobiotics.
