Algal blooms in Lake Erie's central basin can produce types of cyanobacterial
toxins that typically are not detected through routine water-safety monitoring, according to a study published in the Journal of Great Lakes Research.
In deserts particularly, cyanobacterial
crusts are vital as they keep the soil fertile and set the stage for vegetation to take root.
Chatziefthimiou said: "We find cyanobacteria and their toxins in all tested samples of seawater, cyanobacterial
crusts and marine mats.
The selected nitrogen fixing cyanobacterial
cells were then cultured in BG11 media supplemented with [15N]-labeled sodium nitrate.
The fossilized calcimicrobes are the calcification product of the cyanobacteria dominated microbial mats, which provide a clue of microbial activities and show that the microbialitic bioherms might be a product of the cyanobacterial
refined precipitation together with other calcimicrobes.
freshwaters, and a collaborative dimensions of biodiversity project focused on the biogeography and functional diversity of global cyanobacterial
Abiotic factors affecting the migration rate of cyanobacterial
cells through sediment columns.
During their experiment, exposing the mushroom to light activated cyanobacterial
photosynthesis in the bacteria and produced photocurrent, which was then captured as generated electricity.
This volume reviews the features of cyanobacterial
genetic systems responsible for acclimation to a changing environment, including the two-component regulatory system, eukaryotic-type serine-threonine protein kinases, sigma subunits of RNA polymerase, transcription factors, and other regulators and gene expression in response to various factors.
blooms in eutrophic aquatic systems can affect the water quality, which might cause toxicity in fresh, brackish, and marine water bodies as well as in the ecosystem of which human beings are a part.
oceans started to vanish about 650 million years ago, when algae began to rapidly spread to provide the burst of energy needed for the evolution of complex ecosystems, where large animals, including humans, could thrive on Earth," said Brocks.
