This paper describes a case of poisoning by blue-green algae growing in a fresh water pond in Goyena, Provincia de Buenos Aires. The predominating algae were identified as Microcystis aeruginosa. They show an intense growth when certain meteorologic condition prevail, in coincidence with certain chemical characteristics of the water. Once this growth has occurred, the direction of the wind has a decisive role, because it determines the accumulation on the shore, increasing their concentration… 

A single microcystin in a toxic Microcystis bloom from the river Río de la Plata (Argentina)

This is the first report both on the characterisation of MCs in an urban site of the Río de la Plata waters, and on an Argentinean bloom exhibiting only one MC variant.

Health hazards for terrestrial vertebrates from toxic cyanobacteria in surface water ecosystems.

This minireview discusses cyanobacteria, and more especially the toxins they produce, as a potential and important health risk for wild and domestic animals.

The cyanotoxin-microcystins: current overview

Overall, this review emphasizes the current understanding of MCs with their occurrence, geographical distribution, accumulation in the aquatic as well as terrestrial ecosystems, biosynthesis, climate-driven changes in their synthesis, stability and current aspects on its degradation, analysis, mode of action and their ecotoxicological effects.

In vitro investigations on uptake and toxicity of cyanobacterial toxins

Microcystin congener-specific in vitro neurotoxicity in primary murine whole brain and neuronal cultures and the importance of organic anion transporting polypeptides for the toxicity of single microcyStin congeners in vitro is discussed.

Recent Application of Solid Phase Based Techniques for Extraction and Preconcentration of Cyanotoxins in Environmental Matrices

The sampling methodologies and applications of solid phase-based sample preparation methods for the determination of cyanotoxins in environmental matrices are reviewed and mainly include solid phase micro-extraction, solid phase extraction, and solid phase adsorption toxin tracking technology.
