The toxicity characteristics of HBCD and resistance mechanism of flavonols are investigated based on physiological and metagenomic analysis. Toxicology research of HBCD on Arabidopsis thaliana (Col and fls1-3) not only shows the toxic effect of HBCD on plants, but also indicates that flavonols could improve plant resistance to HBCD, including root length, shoot biomass and chlorophyll content. Analysis of eggNOG and GO enrichment demonstrates that HBCD has toxic effect on both gene expression and protein function, which concentrates on energy production - conversion and amino acid transport - metabolism. Differential expressed genes in flavonols-treated groups indicates that flavonols regulate the metabolism of amino acids, cofactors and vitamins, which is involved in plant defense system against oxidative damage caused by HBCD stress. HBCD is believed to affect the synthesis of proteins via genes expression of ribosome biogenesis process. Flavonols could strengthen the plant resistance and alleviate toxic effect under HBCD stress.
