Streptomycin is a common contaminant in a variety of industrial and agricultural wastewaters. The available information on the potential toxicity of streptomycin of fresh algae implicated in the treatment of biological wastewater is extremely limited. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of streptomycin on physiological indices and photosynthesis‐related gene transcription. The results of short‐term batch bioassays indicated that streptomycin was more sensitive to… Expand

TLDR
The findings indicate that tetracycline antibiotics influence cell growth and protein synthesis, and they also induce oxidative stress in M. aeruginosa at environmentally similar concentrations. Expand
Streptomycin affects the growth and photochemical activity of the alga Chlorella vulgaris.
TLDR
It is concluded that micromolar concentrations of streptomycin can affect growth and photosynthetic activity of Chlorella vulgaris and can become an ecological problem for primary producers in the aquatic environment. Expand
Physiological responses of Microcystis aeruginosa against the algicidal bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
TLDR
The preliminary study showed that Pseudomonas aeruginosa can inhibit the growth of cyanobacterium, Microcystis aerug in aquatic ecosystems and the algicidal activity of P. aerUGinosa was primarily due to the fermentation liquid of the strain that impeded the synthesis of intracellular protein and carbohydrate, and damaged the cell membrane through membrane lipid peroxidation.

Nitrogen-Regulated Interactions Between Microcystis aeruginosa and Spiramycin Contaminant
Nitrogen significantly regulated (p < 0.05) the effects of spiramycin on the growth and antioxidant responses of Microcystis aeruginosa as well as the biodegradation of spiramycin by M. aeruginosaExpand
Changes in metabolites, antioxidant system, and gene expression in Microcystis aeruginosa under sodium chloride stress.
TLDR
Investigation of the effects of sudden salinity changes on physiological parameters and related gene transcription in M. aeruginosa indicates that a sudden increase in salinity increases the production and excretion of microcystin, changes the cellular redox status, enhances the activities of antioxidant enzymes, inhibits photosynthesis, and affects transcript levels of related genes.

Inhibition mechanism of Penicillium chrysogenum on Microcystis aeruginosa in aquaculture water
Abstract Excessive Microcystis aeruginosa in aquaculture water can affect the quality and safety of aquatic products. An algicidal strain Penicillium chrysogenum (CHS) was isolated from a mix ofExpand
Analyses of gene expression and physiological changes in Microcystis aeruginosa reveal the phytotoxicities of three environmental pollutants
TLDR
The results suggest that these pollutants may cause pleiotropic effects on algal growth and physiological and biochemical reactions, and they may even affect secondary metabolic processes. Expand
Effect of tetracycline on the growth and nutrient removal capacity of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii in simulated effluent from wastewater treatment plants.
TLDR
Tetracycline concentrations of 0-0.25mg/L are expected to have a significant effect on the growth and nutrient removal of C. reinhardtii in recycled water from wastewater treatment plants. Expand
Antioxidant responses and degradation of two antibiotic contaminants in Microcystis aeruginosa.
TLDR
The ability of M. aeruginosa to eliminate coexisting contaminants via detoxification through detoxification was found, possibly due to the accumulation of hydrogen peroxide caused by the inhibited activities of POD and CAT under exposure to spiramycin. Expand

Responses of blue-green and green algae to streptomycin in unialgal and paired culture
TLDR
The data suggest that attempts to select ‘representative’ species for toxicity testing may have mixed success: any blue-green algae would be a suitable representative of Cyanophyta with respect to streptomycin, but no single green alga would adequately represent the wide range of response to strePTomycin seen among the Chlorophyta species tested.

Algal Toxicity of Antibacterial Agents Applied in Danish Fish Farming
TLDR
Applying this test procedure the toxicity of antibacterial agents, being mono- or polyprotic compounds, may be underestimated because of partitioning between ionized and unionized forms. Expand
Effects of glufosinate on antioxidant enzymes, subcellular structure, and gene expression in the unicellular green alga Chlorella vulgaris.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that glufosinate affects the activities of antioxidant enzymes, disrupts chloroplast ultrastructure, and reduces transcription of photosynthesis-related genes in C. vulgaris. Expand
Inhibitory effects of atrazine on Chlorella vulgaris as assessed by real-time polymerase chain reaction.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that atrazine is highly toxic to this alga and that real-time PCR is an efficient technique for assessing the toxicity of xenobiotic compounds in algae. Expand
Sensitivity of marine microalgae to copper: the effect of biotic factors on copper adsorption and toxicity.
TLDR
The relationship between metal-algal cell binding and copper sensitivity of marine microalgae was investigated using a series of 72-h growth-rate inhibition bioassays and short-term uptake studies, finding differences in sensitivity may be due to differences in uptake rates across the plasma membrane, in internal binding mechanisms and/or detoxification mechanisms between the different microalgal species. Expand
Differential responses to copper-induced oxidative stress in the marine macroalgae Lessonia nigrescens and Scytosiphon lomentaria (Phaeophyceae).
TLDR
It is suggested that copper toxicity induced an uncontrolled lipoperoxide accumulation which may lead to cell damage and dysfunction in L. nigrescens, explaining at least partially, the absence of this kelp in a copper-enriched coastal environment. Expand
Allelopathic effects of Ceratophyllum demersum and Microcystis aeruginosa in co-cultivation
TLDR
The present work describes the co-cultivation of Microcystis aeruginosa and Ceratophyllum demersum and the mechanism of their interactions and the inhibition of M.aerug inosa was due to allelopathy rather than competition between them for light and nutrients. Expand
Inhibition of Aerobic Growth and Nitrification of Bacteria in Sewage Sludge by Antibacterial Agents
TLDR
The antibacterial agents were assessed using a pour plate method with both (separately tested) activated sludge bacteria and N. europeae showing to be 5 to 10 times more potent to most agents except SDZ, TI, and MET. Expand
Toxic and genotoxic evaluation of six antibiotics on non-target organisms.

The macrolides were found to be the most harmful for the aquatic environment and the environmental risk was calculated by MEC/PNEC ratio using the available data from the literature regarding their occurrence in the aquatic environments and the toxicity data obtained from the bioassays performed.
