The Smallest Known Genomes of Multicellular and Toxic Cyanobacteria: Comparison, Minimal Gene Sets for Linked Traits and the Evolutionary Implications
TLDR
This work sequenced the genomes of two strains of closely related filamentous cyanobacterial species to yield further insights into the molecular basis of the traits of N(2) fixation, filament formation and cell differentiation, and defined a core set of genes responsible for each trait in filamentous species.
Impact of Nitrogen Sources on Gene Expression and Toxin Production in the Diazotroph Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii CS-505 and Non-Diazotroph Raphidiopsis brookii D9
TLDR
Overall, the constant biosynthesis of toxins and expression of the putative toxin-biosynthesis genes supports the usage of qPCR probes in water quality monitoring of toxic cyanobacteria.
CyDiv, a Conserved and Novel Filamentous Cyanobacterial Cell Division Protein Involved in Septum Localization
TLDR
Structural protein analyses and experimental results suggest that CyDiv is an FtsB/DivIC-like protein, and could therefore, be part of an essential late divisome complex in Anabaena sp.
In Silico Analysis of Putative Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning Toxins Export Proteins in Cyanobacteria
TLDR
Protein modeling and docking analysis found that there is no marked affinity between the recognition domain and a specific PST analogue, reassert the hypothesis regarding the involvement of Na+ in toxin export, as well as the motifs L398XGLQD403 and L390VGLRD395 in toxin recognition.
Draft genome sequences of Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii strains CS-508 and MVCC14, isolated from freshwater bloom events in Australia and Uruguay
TLDR
Both the average nucleotide identity (ANI) and the similarity of gene content indicate that these two genomes should be considered as strains of the C. raciborskii species.
Optimization of 2D‐PAGE protocols for proteomic analysis of two nonaxenic toxin‐producing freshwater cyanobacteria: Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii and Raphidiopsis sp.
Aims:  To optimize a protocol for the extraction and an in‐depth analysis of the soluble protein fraction of two nonaxenic toxin‐producing cyanobacteria Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii
A novel sequencing-based vaginal health assay combining self-sampling, HPV detection and genotyping, STI detection, and vaginal microbiome analysis
TLDR
A novel inclusive vaginal health assay that combines self-sampling with sequencing-based HPV detection and genotyping, vaginal microbiome analysis, and STI-associated pathogen detection that could be used to complement conventional cervical cancer screening.
