A colorimetric phosphatase inhibition assay using protein phosphatase 2A and p-nitrophenyl phosphate as substrate for determining cyanobacterial peptide hepatotoxins directly in water without sample preconcentration has been developed. The assay uses commercially available materials and is much more simple to use than similar procedures using radiolabelled… CONTINUE READING
