Phytoremediation of Polluted Soils: Recent Progress and Developments



This study aims to investigate the response of a high biomass producer non-hyperaccumulator legume plant species, Dolichos lablab L., to cadmium (Cd) stress for phytoremediation process.

Materials and methods

Three individual experiments were carried out to assess physiological and biochemical parameters to support the use of this plant species as a phytoremediator. The first experiment was carried out in Cd-contaminated soil while the second and third experiments were conducted in sand in which Cd was applied to study biochemical responses. Analysis of mineral nutrition, phytoremediation parameters, antioxidant response, and protein identification by gel-based proteomics were performed.

Results and discussion

Good tolerance to Cd under moderate level of contamination was observed. Mineral nutrition was little affected, and phytoremediation index was satisfactory. Additionally, biochemical responses based on antioxidant enzyme analysis were well responsive in roots, reflecting the capacity of Cd stress attenuation in this organ. A proteomic analysis revealed positive regulation of root proteins involved in carbohydrate, amino acids, nitrogen metabolism, and abiotic/biotic stress response, which together may contribute to create a scenario to overcome Cd-induced stress.


Based on the physiological and biochemical results, we concluded that D. lablab L. is suitable for phytoremediation/phytostabilization purposes.
