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 of saponins, flavonoids and alkaloids; vitamin C was also found at high concentrations. The isolate was investigated as a source of antimicrobial compounds. The(More)
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 and stationary growth phases. The expression of the mcyB gene—one of the microcystin biosynthetic genes—under different treatments was quantified using real-time PCR.(More)
