Prevalence of Methylated Arsenic and Microbial Arsenic Methylation Genes in Paddy Soils of the Mekong Delta
|Corresponding Author||Zheng，Yan; Li，Fangbai|
Microbially mediated inorganic-methylated arsenic (As) transformation in paddy soil is crucial to rice safety; however, the linkages between the microbial As methylation process and methylated As species remain elusive. Here, 62 paddy soils were collected from the Mekong River delta of Cambodia to profile As-related functional gene composition involved in the As cycle. The soil As concentration ranged from <1 to 16.6 mg kg, with average As contents of approximately 81% as methylated As and 54% as monomethylarsenate (MMAs(V)) in the phosphate- and oxalate-extractable fractions based on As sequential extraction analysis. Quantitative PCR revealed high arsenite-methylating gene (arsM) copy numbers, and metagenomics identified consistently high arsM gene abundance. The abundance of As-related genes was the highest in bacteria, followed by archaea and fungi. Pseudomonas, Bradyrhizobium, Burkholderia, and Anaeromyxobacter were identified as bacteria harboring the most genes related to As biotransformation. Moreover, arsM and arsI (As demethylation) gene-containing operons were identified in the metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs), implying that arsM and arsI could be transcribed together. The prevalence of methylated As and arsM genes may have been overlooked in tropical paddy fields. The As methylation-demethylation cycle should be considered when manipulating the methylated As pool in paddy fields for rice safety.
