Angiogenic potential of 3-nitro-4-hydroxy benzene arsonic acid (roxarsone).
Six arsenic species [arsenate, arsenite, arsenocholine, arsenobetaine, monomethyl arsonic acid, and dimethyl arsinic acid] present in human urine were determined using ion-exchange chromatography combined with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (IC-ICP-MS).
Methylated arsenic compounds monomethyl arsonic acid (MMA) and dimethyl arsinic acid (DMA) are less toxic, and the organic arsenicals arsenobetaine (AsB) and arsenocholine (AsC), commonly found in seafood, are relatively innocuous (4,5).
