Feasible biotechnological and bioremediation strategies for serpentine soils and mine spoils

, : Feasible biotechnological and bioremediation strategies for serpentine soils and mine spoils. EJB, Electronic Journal of Biotechnology 2(1): 1-16

Reclamation of metalliferous areas is a priority field of biogeochemistry of trace elements. Ultramafic outcrops rich in heavy metals have been mapped in different parts of the world. Heavy metals are potentially cytotoxic, carcinogenic and mutagenic. Environment protection agencies and legislations insisting the mine operators to restore the mine spoils and tailings since the metal leachates have serious implications in production of healthy agricultural products.

Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibitors are reported to protect against the local tissue damage in gingivitis and periodontal disease by reducing nitroxidative stress during inflammation, but their systemic effects are not well investigated. NOS in...
