So you are offering your abstract for folks on the net to have a swing at
it.  Interesting idea.

1. Is this antiport specifically a cadmium transporter or is it a general
heavy-metal transporter that drives Cd accumulation among others.

2. I understand why one would study transport proteins in oats--the
techniques are worked out well.  How effective are oats as heavy metal
accumulators?  And if you want to stretch it further,  amy comments on
this research in relation to bioremediation?
