Investigating factors affecting growth and cellular mcyB transcripts of Microcystis aeruginosa PCC 7806 using real-time PCR
The effects of temperature and light intensity on Microcystis aeruginosa PCC 7806 growth and mcyB transcripts (as a function of microcystin biosynthesis) were investigated at the logarithmic andExpand
Investigating the Taxonomy and Bioactivity of an Egyptian Chlorococcum Isolate
The taxonomic designation of a green microalga isolated from Helwan governorate was investigated. The alga was coccoid, non-buoyant and mostly colonial with no other distinguishing features. Due toExpand
Benthic dinoflagellates from Red Sea, Egypt: Early records
Dinoflagellates from Red Sea are hardly studied, in particular the benthic forms. Samples collected from shallow intertidal zone, Ain Sokhna, Egypt were microscopically examined. Three genera withExpand
Anticancer activity of Cyanothece sp. strain extracts from Egypt: First record
Abstract Objective To assess the anticancer activity of eight cyanobacterial hydrophilic extracts on Ehrlich ascites carcinoma cell line. Methods The cyanobacterial strains used in the investigationExpand
Optimized electroporation-induced transformation in Microcystis aeruginosa PCC7806
Transformation par electroporation reussie chez Microcystis aeruginosa PCC7806. La disruption genique chez les cyanobacteries est difficile et constitue un obstacle pour les manipulations genetiques.Expand
The characterisation of bioactive compounds from an Egyptian Leptolyngbya sp. strain
An investigation into the bioactive metabolites from a benthic, mat-forming strain dominating a polluted wastewater canal in Egypt was conducted. Phytochemical screening revealed the presence ofExpand
Characterization of a Synechocystis sp. from Egypt with the potential of bioactive compounds production.
A polyphasic approach was employed to describe a unicellular coccoid cyanobacterium isolated from Terraat El Khashab, Helwan, Egypt. The cells were characterised by their small diameter (1.9–2.2 μm)Expand
The polyphasic description of a Desmodesmus spp. isolate with the potential of bioactive compounds production
Description polyphasique d’un isolat de Desmodesmus spp. presentant un potentiel dans la production de composes bio-actifs. L’approche polyphasique a ete utilisee pour decrire une espece deExpand
Algae and Chain Aquaculture: An Approach Towards Sustainable Agriculture
Global warming, water scarcity and the rise of sea level have resulted in drastic changes that lead to shortage of living resources needed to meet the demands of the ever-increasing human population.Expand
