|Abstract: ||The effects of increasing arsenic (0, 10, 50, 100 mg L−1) and zinc (0, 50, 80, 120, 200 mg L−1) doses on germination and oxidative stress markers (H2O2, MDA, SOD, CAT, APX, and GR) were examined in two Brazilian savanna tree species (Anadenanthera peregrina and Myracrodruon urundeuva) commonly used to remediate contaminated soils. The deleterious effects of As and Zn on seed germination were due to As- and Zn-induced H2O2 accumulation and inhibition of APX and GR activities, which lead to oxidative damage by lipid peroxidation. SOD and CAT did not show any As- and Zn-induced inhibition of their activities as was seen with APX and GR. We investigated the close relationships between seed germination success under As and Zn stress in terms of GR and, especially, APX activities. Increased germination of A. peregrina seeds exposed to 50 mg L−1 of Zn was related to increased APX activity, and germination in the presence of As (10 mg L−1) was observed only in M. urundeuva seeds that demonstrated increased APX activity. All the treatments for both species in which germination decreased or was inhibited showed decreases in APX activity. A. peregrina seeds showed higher Zn-tolerance than M. urundeuva, while the reverse was observed with arsenic up to exposures of 10 mg L−1.|
