  • This early phase progresses to fluid accumulation in the cells making them pale-staining or showing vacuoles, which is known to the pathologist as "cloudy swelling" or "hydropic degeneration".

  • The bacteria that grew in severely P-depleted and As-enriched conditions were identified as members of a halophile salt-loving family already known to accumulate intracellular As. When deprived of P, they grew slowly and looked bloated because they were full of vacuoles, cellular organelles that manage waste and grow larger and more numerous when cells are under stress.
