Additionally, the EPA has released a pre-publication copy of its proposed Fourth Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR4) which includes both individual cyanotoxins such as cylindrospermopsin, anatoxin-A, microcystin-LR and nodularin
, and also total MCs in aggregate.
Comparative effects and metabolism of two microcystins and nodularin
in the brine shrimp Artemia salina.
1997) found that low temperatures (7, 10, 16 C) gave low measurements for nodularin
production by cyanobacteria, while the highest production was attained at high temperatures.
Inhibition of protein phosphatases by microcystis and nodularin
associated with hepatotoxicity.
Specific toxins that may be released are discussed, including nodularin
, microcystins, anatoxin-a, cylindrospermopsin, and saxitoxins, followed by regulations applying to drinking water, recreational water, and nutrient levels.
Growth, nitrogen fixation, and nodularin
production by two Baltic Sea cyanobacteria.
Estas sustancias pueden presentar alto poder neurotoxico (anatoxin-a, anatoxinas, saxitoxinas), otras pueden ser perjudiciales para el higado (microcistinas, nodularin
y cilindrospermopsina), otro grupo (liposacaridos) pueden causar gastroenteritis (Bartram et al.
Biodegrading of microcystins and nodularin
Indeed, the evidence that microcystin is a potent tumor promoter and that nodularin
(another cynanobacterial hepatotoxin) is a liver carcinogen in rat liver (Ohta et al.
microcystin or nodularin
, which are toxins of blue-green algae) (11,12).
The LC/MS/MS will be used to measure Microcystins and Nodularin
in drinking water by EPA Method 544 in support of EPAs UCMR4 (Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule 4).
Blooms can affect the water quality, as indicated by changes in pH, transparency, and biodiversity, and produce a variety of toxins including microcystin, nodularin
, and ana-toxina.
