Cyanobacterial blooms in drinking water reservoirs may cause a variety of water quality problems, including those of taste and odor, and can compromise the water supply destined for human consumption. In response to this problem an online monitoring tool for analyzing the cyanobacterial concentration in intake water is of practical value. This study(More)
Microcystin-LR is a cyanobacterial toxin possessing a potent tumor-promoting activity mediated through inhibition of protein phosphatases PP1 and PP2A. Because these enzymes are involved in fundamental cell processes, we decided to examine the influence of microcystin-LR on cell cycle progression, onset of anaphase, segregation of chromosomes by the mitotic(More)
Eutrophication is a serious problem in Polish freshwaters. Mass occurrences of toxic cyanobacteria in reservoirs cause problems in the production of safe drinking water and the diversity of produced toxins complicates monitoring of freshwaters. The aim of this study was to estimate the efficiency of water treatment processes in the removal of microcystins(More)
Toxicity of cyanobacterial blooms, an increasing problem around the world, is connected to the increase in bloom samples containing microcystins, caused by excessive eutrophication of drinking- and recreational water reservoirs. Microcystins are the most common group of cyanobacterial hepatotoxins. In Poland they are produced mainly by the Microcystis(More)
