Comparative analysis of cyanobacterial superoxide dismutases to discriminate canonical forms
TLDR
The present analysis unravels the ambiguity among cyanobacterial SOD isoforms and concludes that cyanobacteria harbor either Ni alone or a combination of Fe and Ni or Fe and Mn as their catalytic active metal while Cu/Zn is rare.
An Improved Method for Marine Cyanobacterial DNA Isolation
TLDR
This method resulted in a high yield of quality DNA suitable for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplifications, and a simple, efficient and reproducible protocol for the isolation of DNA from different morphological types of marine cyanobacteria.
Molecular characterization of marine Cyanobacteria from the Indian subcontinent deduced from sequence analysis of the phycocyanin operon (cpcb-IGS-cpcA) and 16S-23S ITS region.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that morphologically very similar strains might differ genotypically and molecular approaches comprising different gene regions in combination with morphological criteria may provide better taxonomical resolution of the order Oscillatoriales.
Phenol degradation by the marine cyanobacterium Phormidium valderianum BDU 30501
TLDR
Phenol was found to be effectively removed and degraded by the marine cyanobacterium Phormidium valderianum BDU 30501, opening up the possibility of treating a variety of phenol-containing industrial effluents using this organism.
Genetic heterogeneity of the marine cyanobacterium Leptolyngbya valderiana (Pseudanabaenaceae) evidenced by RAPD molecular markers and 16S rDNA sequence data
TLDR
The genetic variability observed within the marine strains of L. valderiana indicates the presence of cryptic species, and future investigations combining well-characterized ultrastructural morphology with additional molecular markers are essential to characterize and clarify the patterns in the evolution and biogeography.
