A new quantitative PCR assay for the detection of hepatotoxigenic cyanobacteria.

Abstract

Toxin-producing cyanobacteria are a worldwide threat to both human and animal health. The hepatotoxins microcystin and nodularin are the most commonly occurring toxins produced by bloom-forming cyanobacteria. They are cyclic peptides that are synthesized nonribosomally by a multienzyme complexes encoded within the microcystin (mcyS) and nodularin (ndaS… (More)
