Advances in the Uptake and Transport Mechanisms and QTLs Mapping of Cadmium in Rice
AbstractCadmium (Cd), as a heavy metal, presents substantial biological toxicity and has harmful effects on human health. To lower the ingress levels of human Cd, it is necessary for Cd content in food crops to be reduced, which is of considerable significance for ensuring food safety. This review will summarize the genetic traits of Cd accumulation in rice and examine the mechanism of Cd uptake and translocation in rice. The status of genes related to Cd stress and Cd accumulation in rice in recent years will be summarized, and the genes related to Cd accumulation in rice will be classified according to their functions. In addition, an overview of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) mapping populations in rice will be introduced, aiming to provide a theoretical reference for the breeding of rice varieties with low Cd accumulation. Finally, existing problems and prospects will be put forward. View Full-Text
