Occurrence of cyanobacteria and cyanotoxin in the Southern Baltic Proper. Filamentous cyanobacteria versus single-celled picocyanobacteria
TLDR
The analyses showed no correlation between the growth of the nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria and Synechococcus and a shift in the composition of Pcy phenotypes was observed, which might be an indication of the proceeding changes induced by the reduced nutrient loading and/or climate change.
Characterization of nodularin variants in Nodularia spumigena from the Baltic Sea using liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry.
TLDR
Two of the total eight nodularin variants characterized in the present study, [dhb(5)]NOD and [MeAdda]NOD, have not been described earlier.
A Collaborative Evaluation of LC-MS/MS Based Methods for BMAA Analysis: Soluble Bound BMAA Found to Be an Important Fraction
TLDR
Underivatized methods for BMAA analysis of animal, brain and cyanobacterial samples were accurate and precise, except for the cyanobacterium Leptolyngbya, implying that D3BMAA was not a good indicator for the release of BMAA from bound forms.
Accumulation of nodularin in sediments, mussels, and fish from the Gulf of Gdańsk, southern Baltic Sea
TLDR
The accumulation of nodularin (NOD), a cyanobacterial pentapeptide hepatotoxin, in sediments, blue mussels, and flounders from the Gulf of Gdańsk was studied by enzyme‐linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and the presence of NOD in sediment, mussel, and fish samples was confirmed.
The effect of salinity on the growth, toxin production, and morphology of Nodularia spumigena isolated from the Gulf of Gdańsk, southern Baltic Sea
TLDR
Salinity was also observed to have other effects on NSGG-1; the filaments were longest at 7 psu, while an increased number of akinetes were formed at 35 pSu, and the number of heterocytes was markedly reduced at the extreme salinities.
Cyanobacteria and cyanotoxins in Polish freshwater bodies
TLDR
It is concluded that Planktothrix, Aphanizomenon, Microcystis and Dolichospermum were dominant in the presence of cyanobacteria and cyanotoxins in fresh water bodies located in 5 provinces in Poland and the general pattern in geographical distribution was typical of other eutrophic waters in Europe.
Diversity of Peptides Produced by Nodularia spumigena from Various Geographical Regions
TLDR
Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry was used to elucidate the structures of non-ribosomal peptides produced by Nodularia spumigena from the Baltic Sea, the coastal waters of southern Australia and Lake Iznik in Turkey and the results obtained were consistent with the published data on the genetic diversity of the Baltic and Australian populations.
Phenotypic and toxicological characterization of toxic Nodularia spumigena from a freshwater lake in Turkey
TLDR
Cyanobacterial blooms have been occasionally observed in Iznik lake, a freshwater body located in the western part of Turkey and this is the first report of toxic N. spumigena in a European freshwater lake.
Biodegradation of nodularin and effects of the toxin on bacterial isolates from the Gulf of Gdańsk.
TLDR
Not only freshwater microorganisms, but also those living in brackish waters, play an important role in cyanotoxin removal, and seven biodegradation products are revealed, including five novel ones.
