Phenotypic and metal analysis of OsLCT2 overexpression lines and the WT grown hydroponically. Two-week-old seedlings grown hydroponically were exposed to 0, 0.5 or 1 μM Cd for two weeks. a Phenotypes of the WT and overexpression lines. Scale bar, 3 cm. bd Shoot length (b), shoot dry weight (c) and root dry weight (d) of overexpression lines and the WT. eh Metal concentrations in shoots (e, f) and roots (g, h) of overexpression lines and the WT without Cd treatment. i, j Concentrations of Cd in shoots (i) and roots (j) of overexpression lines and the WT at 0.5 or 1 μM Cd supply. k, l Metal concentrations in xylem sap (k) and metal translocation rates from roots to shoot (l) of overexpression lines and the WT at 0.5 μM Cd supply. Data show means ± SD of three biological replicates. Asterisks above the bars indicate significant differences from the WT (*P < 0.05, **P < 0.01; Student’s t-test). DW, dry weight
