The aim of the present study was to investigate selenate toxicity in the unicellular green algae Chlamydomonas reinhardtii as a function of sulphate ion concentration and the relationship with intracellular bioaccumulation. The toxicity of selenate was evaluated by measuring the effect of different selenate concentrations on algal growth during a 96h(More)
BACKGROUND Selenium is an essential trace element that also elicits toxic effects at modest intakes. Investigations of selenium metabolites in urine can help our understanding of the transformations taking place in the body that produce these beneficial and detrimental effects. There is, however, considerable discord in the scientific literature regarding(More)
Garlic and onion, are well known for their medical value, especially in against cancer and anticardiovacular diseases. "Alliins" (S-alk(en)yl-L-cysteine sulphoxides) are sources of major active compounds in Allium plants. Se incorporation into garlic significantly increases activities of garlic in cancer prevention and inhibition. Selenomethionine,(More)
Speciation analysis of selenium in human urine allowed for the first time the identification of a novel selenium metabolite, Se-methylselenoneine. Despite a concentration at low ppb level, its characterization was achieved after sample purification by solid phase extraction (SPE) followed by the parallel coupling of the bidimensional RP/HILIC chromatography(More)
This paper presents an improvement for the simultaneous separation of Sb(V), Sb(III) and (CH3)3SbCl2 species by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and its detection by hydride generation-atomic fluorescence spectrometry (HG-AFS). The separation was performed on an anion exchange column PRP-X100 using a gradient elution program between EDTA/KHP(More)
The combination of headspace-solid phase microextraction (HS-SPME) and gas chromatography-inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (GC-ICPMS) was evaluated for the determination of volatile selenium metabolites in normal urine samples, i.e. without selenium supplementation. HS-SPME operating conditions were optimised and a sampling time of 10 min was(More)
A better understanding of selenium fate in soils at both short and long time scales is mandatory to consolidate risk assessment models relevant for managing both contamination and soil fertilization issues. The purpose of this study was thus to investigate Se retention processes and their kinetics by monitoring time-dependent distribution/speciation changes(More)
A coupling between column liquid chromatography (LC) and atomic fluorescence spectrometry was developed for arsenic speciation. After separation, the compounds are oxidised on-line by UV irradiation, volatilised by hydride-generation and carried to the detector by a stream of argon. A combination of anion-exchange and hydrophobic interactions in a single(More)
A recently developed method for the determination of arsenic species (arsenite, arsenate, monomethylarsonate, MMAA, and dimethylarsinate, DMAA) has been applied to the study of arsenic speciation in plants. This method uses ion-exchange liquid chromatography coupled on-line to atomic fluorescence spectrometry through continuous hydride generation. Various(More)
A three-dimensional liquid chromatographic purification protocol based on sequential size-exclusion, anion-exchange and cation-exchange separation mechanisms was developed for the mapping of seleno compounds in aqueous yeast extracts. The method allowed the demonstration of the presence of more than 30 different seleno compounds. Semi-preparative(More)
