Metabolite Identification
Common NameNitarsone
DescriptionNitarsone, also known as histostat or 4-O2c6h4aso3h2, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as nitrobenzenes. Nitrobenzenes are compounds containing a nitrobenzene moiety, which consists of a benzene ring with a carbon bearing a nitro group. Nitarsone is a weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). Nitarsone is a potentially toxic compound. Hypovolemia from capillary leakage (third-spacing of fluids) is a common, serious, early effect. Muscular weakness, limb tenderness and difficulty walking may follow. Arsenic is known to induce the metal-binding protein metallothionein, which decreases the toxic effects of arsenic and other metals by binding them and making them biologically inactive, as well as acting as an antioxidant. That may be associated with a motor neuropathy as well (T36). Hydrogen peroxide production is also increased, which might form reactive oxygen species and oxidative stress.
