Plants are considered the most cost effective and environmentally sound way to clean up the soils and water contaminated with toxic metals. We focused our studies on the fern species Polystichum acrostichoides. A total of 17 protein spots were up regulated and 3 proteins were down regulated upon various metal exposures, and are arranged to be subjected to liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry for further identification.
