Review: New molecular mechanisms to reduce arsenic in crops ($)

Over 200 million humans are at risk of arsenic poisoning,” due to arsenic in groundwater and its uptake into crops. Our understanding of the transporters through which arsenic enters the plant, moves through the plant, and enters the seed has increased substantially in recent years, opening the door to diverse strategies for reducing arsenic accumulation in food, as reviewed by Lindsay and Maathuis.
