Solioz and Vulpe (1996) defined the heavy metal P-type ATPases as CPx-ATPases because they share the common feature of a conserved intramembranous cysteine-proline-cysteine, cysteine-proline-histidine or cysteine-proline-serine motif (CPx motif) which is thought to function in heavy metal transduction. Nutr. Copper: metabolic function and toxicity Copper is required for plant nutrition only in trace amounts and at higher concentrations can be toxic to cells. Plant Physiol. Res. Thus HMA7 (RAN1) is involved in ethylene signaling by transporting Cu to the secretory pathway, where it is required for the formation of functional ethylene receptors (Woeste and Kieber, 2000). Biol. Copper Toxicity is a build up of stored bio-unavailable copper in the body. Plant Mol. 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). The Arabidopsis CCH gene, highly homologous to the yeast ATX1 (Himelblau et al., 1998) has been the most extensively studied of the three Cu chaperones in plants (Mira et al., 2001a,b). J. Biochem.

The remaining four type 1B ATPases in Arabidopsis thaliana HMA1, HMA2, HMA3 and HMA4 are most closely related to the divalent cation transporters from prokaryotes and have no apparent counterparts in non-plant eukaryotes. Plants endure Cu toxicity through various detoxification mechanisms. Copper chaperones: The Cu chaperones belong to a new family of cytosolic, soluble, low-molecular-weight metal-receptor proteins named metallochaperones, and are involved in the intracellular trafficking of metal ions. Some authors (Schröder et al., 1994, Arellano et al., 1995) suggested that the electron flow from Tyrz to P680+ is blocked at toxic Cu concentrations.

In view of the similarity between plastids and cyanobacteria, P-type ATPases such as PAA1, which are more similar to cyanobacterial transporters than to RAN1, were proposed to be involved in Cu delivery to chloroplasts. The recent completion of the Oryza sativa (rice) genome has allowed the comparison of the full complement of P-type ATPase genes in two different plant species, Arabidopsis thaliana and Oryza sativa.

In particular, the interaction of metal chaperones with transporters deserves attention since this may have important implications for sequestration of metals within intracellular stores.

Biochemistry 34:12747-12754. The toxicity of excess soil copper to plants may reduce crop yields. 50:698-701. These findings suggest an indirect role in Cu transport (Sancenón et al., 2004). New Phytol. 26:695-708. A comprehensive understanding of metal transport in plants will be essential for developing strategies to genetically engineer plants that accumulate specific metals, either for use in phytoremediation or to improve human nutrition (Salt et al., 1998; Pilon-Smits and Pilon, 2002). Consequently, several families of heavy metal transporters have been identified (for reviews see Fox and Guerinot, 1998; Himelblau and Amasino, 2000; Williams et al., 2000; Markossian and Kurganov, 2003) (figure 2). Phytogenous chronic poisoning is seen after ingestion of plants, such as subterranean clover (Trifolium subterraneum), that produce a mineral imbalance and result in excessive copper retention.

Plant Physiol. COPPER IN PLANTS: ACQUISITION, TRANSPORT AND INTERACTIONS Inmaculada Yruela Estación Experimental de Aula Dei, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), Avda. 19:203-209. As trace element, an optimal quantity of Cu is required to ensure cellular roles, but in excessive quantity it induces harmful impact on the primary production and survival of plants ( Printz et al., 2016 ). 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.

Cu-deficient plants show disintegration of the thylakoid membranes of chloroplasts (Baszynski et al., 1978; Henriques, 1989) as well as decreased pigment (chlorophylls and carotenoids) content, reduced plastoquinone synthesis and lower unsaturated C18 fatty acid contents (Barón et al., 1992).

In contrast, activation of AtCOX17 gene expression in response to Cu treatment might be an indication of a function like metallothioneins. This role is explained by the fact that ethylene receptors are Cu-dependent proteins (Rodríguez et al., 1999; Hiramaya and Alonso, 2000). Plant J. On the other hand, Cu ions are chelated by specific chaperones and delivered to Cu pumps for transport into organelles or directly to cytosolic Cu-dependent proteins. FEBS Lett.

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. Hence, the presence of excess Cu can cause oxidative stress in plants and subsequently increase the antioxidant responses due to increased production of highly toxic oxygen free radicals.

Pairwise comparisons of similarities between each of these genes suggests that the plant Nramps can be broadly divided into two groups: 1) OsNramp1, OsNramp3 and AtNramp5 which share high similarity and 2) OsNramp2, AtNramp1, AtNramp2, AtNramp3 and AtNramp4, which have lower similarity to group (1).

In this sense, citrate appears to be responsible for Cu tolerance in Arabidopsis thaliana (Murphy et al., 1999). There is little evidence that tolerant species or ecotypes show an enhanced oxidative defence; rather, tolerant plants show enhanced avoidance and homeostatic mechanisms to prevent the stress (De Vos et al., 1991; Dietz et al., 1999).

Chem. In: Terry N, Banuelos G (eds), Phytoremediation of contaminated soil and water, pp.235-250. 94:511-519. (2003) found that high Cu concentrations, apart from the inhibition of oxygen evolution, changed the initial S-state distribution of the oxygen-evolving complex, oxidized both the LP and the HP forms of Cyt b559, and enhanced the formation of the Chlz+ radical. after copper was increased in solution culture (91). 53:159-182. Acta Agraria et Silvestria Agraria 20:95-106. Additional effects of Cu toxicity on both the donor side, affecting the Mn-cluster and the extrinsic proteins of the oxygen-evolving-complex, and the acceptor side, interacting with the non-heminic Fe2+ and cytochrome (Cyt) b559 have been reported (Renger et al., 1993; Jegerschöld et al., 1995, 1999; Yruela et al., 1996b; Sersen et al., 1997; Yruela et al., 2000; Burda et al., 2003; Bernal et al., 2004). Biol. 84:329-332. The mechanism of Cu toxicity on photosynthetic electron transport has been extensively studied in vitro and it was found that PSII (figure 1) is a more sensitive site to Cu toxicity (for review see Droppa and Horváth, 1990; Barón et al., 1995) than photosystem I (PSI) (Ouzounidou et al., 1997). The data of partial sequences and expressed sequence tags obtained suggest these ATPases occur in a variety of plant species. These mechanisms appear to be involved primarily in avoiding the accumulation of toxic concentrations at sensitive sites within the cell preventing the damaging effects rather than developing proteins that can resist the heavy metal effects. Organic acids excreted by plants can facilitate metal uptake, but these molecules can also inhibit metal acquisition by forming a complex with it outside the root so that it is not taken up.

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). Biochem. Function, structure, and mechanism of action. Plants growing in soil that has too much copper may develop … Physiol. J. Cu concentrations in cells need to be maintained at low levels since this element is extremely toxic in view of its high redox properties. A reduction in root growth was observed at an external Cu concentration of < 1 μM , with damage evident from an external concentration of 0.2 μM . 138:115-118. These studies indicated that Cyt b559 is affected after PSII centers are photoinhibited and that the HP form of Cyt b559 is more sensitive to the toxic Cu action than the LP form under photoinhibitory conditions (Bernal et al., 2004). Thus, these proteins prevent inappropriate Cu interaction with other cellular components. Springer-Verlag, Berlin.

Four members of this family HMA5, HMA6 (PAA1), HMA7 (RAN1) and HMA8 (PAA2) are the most closely related to the Cu/Ag subclass. 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).
