The potent toxin microcystin is frequently released during cyanobacterial blooms in eutrophic waters and may impose a risk to human health, when surface water is used for drinking water. For removal of microcystin in surface waters, infiltration through sediment is commonly used. In the present study, mineralization of 14C-labelled microcystin (accumulation of 14CO(2)) and concentration changes (protein phosphatase inhibition assay) demonstrated that indigenous microorganisms in the sediment of… CONTINUE READING
