Genetically engineered plants could provide feasible and environmentally safe approach for phytoremediation of CN compounds. However, the survival capacity of transgenic plants under high doses of CN is disappointing. One of the possible causes of such phytotoxicity is the CN-induced inhibition of antioxidant systems that lead to accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Therefore, simultaneous overexpression of a CN degrading enzyme along with an oxidative stress-relieving protein could maintain the internal redox homeostasis and enhance CN-phytoremediation capacity under high doses of CN. In the present study, transgenic tobacco plants overexpressing the bacterial cyanidase (CYND) and the cyanobacterial glutathione-S-transferase (GST) separately and in combination have been generated. Significant growth recovery was observed for all transgenic plants under 10 mM CN compared to wild type plants. However, GST + CYND overexpressors showed the highest biomass accumulation under CN stress. Similarly, reduction in photosynthetic pigments and total carbohydrate levels were significantly recovered in transgenic plants especially at higher doses of CN (7.5 and 10.0 mM). Moreover, both GST and GST + CYND transgenic plants showed elevated activities of SOD and CAT compared to the wild type upon exposure to CN. MDA content, as an indicator of lipid peroxidation, was significantly decreased in all transgenic plants. However, the lowest level of MDA was observed in GST + CYND transgenic lines. These results suggest that synchronous overexpression of GST with CYND genes improves CN remediation capacity of tobacco by improvement of the antioxidant scavenging systems and keeping ROS under control.

The current study evaluated the allelopathic potential of Alhagi graecorum on germination and seedling growth of two common crop plants; bean (Vicia faba) and corn (Zea mays). Water soluble allelochemicals were extracted from the air dried-powdered shoots of A. graecorum at three different concentrations (2.0, 4.0 and 6.0%, w/v). The germination experiment revealed that seeds of both bean and corn have tolerance to the aqueous extract of A. graecorum, where concentrations up to 6.0% had no significant effect on percent of germination as compared with the untreated seeds. The results showed that the lowest concentration (2.0%) of the aqueous extract stimulated elongation of radicle and plumule as well as seedling biomass of both bean and corn, while the highest concentration (6.0%) was inhibitory. In addition, the growth of corn seedlings was retarded at the modest dose (4%) of the aqueous extract, while that for bean seedlings was promoted at the same concentration. Similarly, water soluble allelochemicals extracted from A. gaecorum shoots influenced accumulation of soluble sugars and proteins in a concentration and species dependent manner.
