Bioconcentration of Arsenic in Hediste diversicolor
What is it about?
This study focused on bioconcentrations of arsenic inHediste diversicolor after exposure to three different molecule solutions: arsenate, dimethylarsinate and arsenobetaine. Speciation analysis was carried out after exposing the organisms to these solutions in order to investigate their arsenic biotransformation capacity.
Why is it important?
H. diversicolor shows a high bioconcentration capacity of As in tissues and thus appears to show a wide range of possible physiological detoxification mechanisms.
