Marine organisms contain arsenic at high levels, both in water-soluble and lipid-soluble forms. In contrast to the accumulated knowledge on water-soluble arsenic compounds, toxicological properties of lipid-soluble arsenic compounds (arsenolipids) have been little understood. Therefore, this study was aimed to clarify the metabolism of… (More)
