Microcystis aeruginosa is an important cyanobacteria widely found in numerous freshwater lakes. In this study, we examined the uptake and toxic effects of cadmium (Cd) and zinc (Zn) in non-toxic (Ma 469) and toxic (Ma 905) strains of Microcystis based on the metal free ion and cellular concentrations. We compared their uptake rates, pulse-amplitude… CONTINUE READING
