Bacterial degradation of arsenobetaine via dimethylarsenoylacetate.
The research demonstrates for the first time the capability of pure bacterial isolates to cleave the carbon-arsenic bonds of arsenobetaine, which is fundamentally important for advancing understanding of the formation of toxic forms of arsenic within the GI tract.
