A couple of studies suggested the association between histone phosphorylation and arsenic carcinogenesis. Li et al. suggest that arsenic trioxide induces histone H3 phosphoacetylation at the caspase-10 gene, which may play a role in apoptosis contributing to the anticancer effects of arsenic trioxide on acute promyelocytic leukemia [93]. One year later, they showed that arsenite stimulates histone H3 phosphoacetylation of proto-oncogenes c-fos and c-jun chromatin in lung fibroblasts [89]. All these studies clearly demonstrated that histone modification is dysregulated by arsenic exposure, but further work is required to understand the overall effects of altered histone modification on arsenic-induced toxicity or carcinogenesis.
