Cadmium transport, resistance, and toxicity in bacteria, algae, and fungi

Cadmium transport, resistance, and toxicity in bacteria, algae, and fungi

Canadian Journal of Microbiology 32(6): 447-464

Recent information on cadmium transport, resistance and toxicity in microorganisms is reviewed. Toxic concentrations of Cd and mechanisms of Cd toxicity and resistance vary widely depending on the organism, the form of the metal and the environment.
