Cyanobacterial blooms in eutrophic water bodies are a worldwide problem. Combined effects of mixtures of secondary metabolites produced by different cyanobacterial species on aquatic fauna are still not well recognised. We compared the survivorship of Brachionus calyciflorus Pallas (Rotifera) and Daphnia pulex Leyding (Cladocera) exposed to pure microcystin LR (MC-LR), anatoxin-a (ANTX) and to five extracts obtained from bloom-forming cyanobacteria Microcystis, Planktothrix and Dolichospermum… 

Effects of Extracts Containing Metabolites of Different Cyanobacteria from an Ambient Spring (Central Europe) on Zooplankters Daphnia magna and Duckweed Spirodela polyrhiza

Toxic cyanobacterial blooms are a well-known problem in eutrophic water bodies, but cyanobacterial toxicity in ambient springs is unexplored. Therefore, we studied the toxin content and effects of

The Occurrence of Potential Harmful Cyanobacteria and Cyanotoxins in the Obrzyca River (Poland), a Source of Drinking Water

Analysis of the chemical indicators of water quality has shown relationships between them and microcystins as well as cyanobacteria abundance, andMicrocystin concentrations (MC-LR and MC-RR) were positively correlated with cyanob bacteria biovolume.

Phytoplankton of the Curonian Lagoon as a New Interesting Source for Bioactive Natural Products. Special Impact on Cyanobacterial Metabolites

The results of the study showed a biotechnological potential of natural products from the Curonian Lagoon, with no link between the observed activity and a specific sample component can be established.

Spatial and Temporal Diversity of Cyanometabolites in the Eutrophic Curonian Lagoon (SE Baltic Sea)

The profiles of cyanopeptides and anatoxin synthetized by cyanobacteria in the Lithuanian part of the Curonian Lagoon are determined and their spatial and temporal patterns in this ecosystem are characterized.

Seasonal Response of Daphnia pulex to Cyanobacterial Extracts at Different Temperatures in Valle de Bravo Reservoir (Mexico)

The tolerance of Daphnia pulex to cyanotoxins depends on the bloom-forming species and the temperature, and the adverse effect of cyanobacterial extracts was greater from Microcystis than Woronichinia blooms.

Cyanobacteria and their secondary metabolites in three freshwater reservoirs in the United Kingdom

Background Bloom-forming cyanobacteria occur globally in aquatic environments. They produce diverse bioactive metabolites, some of which are known to be toxic. The most studied cyanobacterial toxins

Blooming cyanobacteria alter water flea reproduction via exudates of estrogen analogues.



Experimental studies on the effects of toxic Microcystis aeruginosa PCC7820 on the survival and reproduction of two freshwater rotifers Brachionuscalyciflorus and Brachionus rubens

This study indicates that the two rotifers have different sensitivities to toxic M. aeruginosa and that toxic cyanobacteria may affect zooplankton community structure by differentially inhibiting the different zoopLankton taxa.

Effect of nutrient limitation of cyanobacteria on protease inhibitor production and fitness of Daphnia magna

Findings indicate that both the grazer and the cyanobacterium benefit from P reduction in terms of digestibility and growth inhibition, which is an interesting starting point for further studies.

Microcystin assimilation and detoxification by Daphnia spp. in two ecosystems of different cyanotoxin concentrations

It is demonstrated that generations of daphniids from the Sulejow reservoir had more effective antioxidant systems protecting them against the accumulation of cyanobacterial toxins; thereby, they are less susceptible to toxic effects than the daphNIids from lake Biale.

Acute, chronic and reproductive toxicity of complex cyanobacterial blooms in Daphnia magna and the role of microcystins.

Sensitivity and adaptation of aquatic organisms to oscillapeptin J and [D-Asp3,(E)-Dhb7]microcystin-RR

The data characterize oscillapeptin J as a specific crustacean toxin directed against this most "dangerous" group of grazers for planktonic cyanobacteria.

Identification of peptide metabolites of Microcystis (Cyanobacteria) that inhibit trypsin-like activity in planktonic herbivorous Daphnia (Cladocera).

The present study underlines the potential importance of the biochemistry of cyanobacteria for the feeding ecology of a planktonic herbivore.

Effect of crude extracts of Dolichospermum planctonicum on the demography of Plationus patulus (Rotifera) and Ceriodaphnia cornuta (Cladocera)

It was found that the rotifers were more resistant to the toxicants than the cladocerans, and had a significant negative impact on the demographic parameters, adversely affecting reproduction more than survival.
