They said, 'Markers of oxidative stress and levels of heavy metals namely lead, cadmium, copper, arsenite and nickel were determined in the liver and muscle of fish samples from both sites.
Although the underlying mechanisms have remained somewhat obscure, studies in rodent models have shown that the lung has substantial arsenic metabolizing capacity through arsenite methyltransferase (Healy et al.
Arsenic is not geologically uncommon and occurs in natural water as arsenate and arsenite.
Methods: Ovarian oxidative stress was induced in female Kunming mice (n = 40) with intraperitoneal injection of 8 mg/kg sodium arsenite (As) once every other day for 16 days; meanwhile, they were, respectively, treated by intragastric administration of 0, 100, 150, or 200 mg/kg (n = 10/group) curcumin once per day for 21 days.

Arsenic occurs in four forms which are arsenic (0), arsenite As (III), arsine As (III) and arsenate As (V).
Arsenic is a naturally occurring metalloid having four primary oxidative states: +5, +3, 0, and -3, among which the trivalent arsenite form ([As.

The explanation for the limited translocation is that the arsenate is rapidly reduced to arsenite in the roots and, then, is complexed and sequestered in the vacuoles of root cells, which may reduce its translocation (Su et al.
The results also revealed that male albino rats fed on a diet containing sodium arsenite NaAsO2 (200mg/kg) for 6 weeks displayed increased activities of serum alkaline phosphatase, g-glutamyl transferase and transaminases and increased malondialdehyde level and xanthine oxidase activity concomitant with a decrease in glutathione level and xanthine dehydrogenase, superoxide dismutase and catalase activities.
According to [7], arsenite As(III) and arsenate As(V) both were adsorb by CuO (cupric oxide) nano-particles very effectively.
