ABSTRACT
Heavy metals occur as a natural constituent of earth’s crust. Due to the indiscriminate human activities there is drastic change in geochemical and biochemical balance which results in accumulation of metals in plant parts having secondary metabolites with particular pharmacological activity. All over the world the concentration of essential and non-essential heavy metals such as Cadmium, Copper, Lead, Nickel and Zinc beyond permissible limit is a matter of great concern for public wellbeing. Molecular understanding of plant metal accumulation is essential as it has many biotechnological implications.
