The research team found a cyanobacterium
called Dolichospermum in the central basin during early-season blooms in July This cyanobacterium
is capable of producing a toxin that can attack the central nervous system in humans, and the researchers found genetic evidence that the bloom has the potential for the neurotoxin.
Fujita, Oxygen Sensitivity of a Nitrogenase-Like Protochlorophyllide Reductase from the Cyanobacterium
This strain showed higher growth rate compared to the other cultures ([mu] = 0.0296[h-.sup.1]), while the cyanobacterium
PCC 6803 is the first sequenced cyanobacterium
; subsequently, more cyanobacterial genome sequence was completed.
Heyer H, Stal LJ, Krumbein WE (1989) Simultaneous heterolactic and acetate fermentation in the marine cyanobacterium
Oscillatoria limosa incubated anaerobically in the dark.
Lyngbya majuscula, a benthic marine cyanobacterium
, is known to produce toxins, such as debromoaplysiatoxin and lyngbyatoxin, and to cause acute dermal lesions among swimmers (Nagai et al.
There was a clear positive relationship (r = 0.59; n = 41; P < 0.05) between the concentration of microcystin and the biovolume of cyanobacteria, indicating the influence of the cyanobacterium
Genetic evidence of a major role for glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase in nitrogen fixationj and dark growth of the cyanobacterium
Glutathione synthetase gshB gene in the cyanobacterium
Synechococcus sp PCC 7942 encodes a functional glutathione synthetase , the gshB gene includes an open reading frame of 969 nucleotides, which encodes a polypeptide of 323 amino acid residues with an approximate molecular mass of 35 kDa.
Effect of salinity on growth and toxin production in cultures of the bloom-forming cyanobacterium
Nodularia spumigena from Australian waters.
