Isolation and identification of the cyanotoxin cylindrospermopsin and deoxy-cylindrospermopsin from a Thailand strain of Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii (Cyanobacteria).
A strain of Cylindrospermopsis (Cyanobacteria) isolated from a fishpond in Thailand was examined for its taxonomy based upon morphology and 16S rRNA gene sequence. It was also examined for productionExpand

Hepatic xenobiotic metabolism of cylindrospermopsin in vivo in the mouse.
Cylindrospermopsin (CYN) is a hepatotoxin isolated from the blue-green alga Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii. The role of both glutathione (GSH) and the cytochrome P450 enzyme system (P450) in theExpand

Chlorination for degrading saxitoxins (paralytic shellfish poisons) in water
Abstract Chlorination was investigated as a treatment option for degrading and thus removing saxitoxins (paralytic shellfish poisons, PSPs) produced by cyanobacteria (blue‐green algae) from water. ItExpand

Degradation of the cyanobacterial toxin cylindrospermopsin, from Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii, by chlorination.
Cylindrospermopsin, a potent cyanobacterial toxin produced by Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii and other cyanobacteria, is regularly found in water supplies of Queensland, Australia. This studyExpand
