It was discovered that the bioactive metabolites of Brevibacillus laterosporus, B117, had a statistically significant algicidal effect on cyanobacteria (Anabaena sp., Nostoc, Microcystis) that could also interfere with the normal operation of the photosynthetic component in the electron transport chain receptor binding domain, belonging to photosynthesis II; in addition, the bioactive metabolites degraded phycobilin and altered the organization structure of algal cells [27].

Some members of genera such as Microcystis, Anabaena, Nostoc and Aphanizomenon produce a wide range of potent toxins including a group of hepatotoxins called microcystins in freshwater (Harada, 1996; Chorus and Bartram, 1999; Codd et al., 2005).
