摘要Heavy metals activate the synthesis of phytochelatins (PCs), while the induced PCs might affect metal uptake via chelating intracellular free metals. However, the relationship of PCs to metal uptake is poorly understood. In this study, we examined the kinetics of cadmium (Cd) accumulation and the synthesis of PCs in a marine diatom, Thalassiosira weissflogii, under different irradiance levels. Irradiance alone could not change the concentrations of PCs in the Cd-free treatments, while higher irradiance accelerated the induction of intracellular PCs at the same [Cd2+] level. PC-SH (2 x PC2 + 3 x PC3 + 4 x PC4) was bound with Cd at a stoichiometric ratio of 2 to 49 in our short-term uptake experiments, indicating that PC induction is sufficient to serve as the first line of defense against Cd stress. A positive linear correlation between the induction rate of PCs and the Cd uptake rate was observed, while the ratio of the PC content to intracellular Cd varied greatly when the irradiance was increased several fold. Because metal uptake has been successfully used in predicting acute metal toxicity, our findings are helpful for understanding the role of PCs in metal detoxification and developing PCs as biomarkers for metal sensitivity.
