This study describes a short-term (12 h) evaluation of iron (Fe) bioavailability to an Fe-dependent cyanobacterial bioreporter derived from Synechococcus PCC 7942. Several synthetic ligands with variable conditional stability constants for Fe(lll) (K* of 10(19.8) to 10(30.9)), in addition to several defined natural Fe-binding ligands and a fulvic acid of… CONTINUE READING
