Estimating toxic cyanobacteria in a Brazilian reservoir by quantitative real-time PCR, based on the microcystin synthetase D gene

Abstract

The production of microcystin toxins by cyanobacteria is an intrapopulation feature and the toxic and nontoxic genotypes can be separated only through molecular analyses targeting the mcy markers. Quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) is a procedure that has been established, not only to detect but to specifically quantify these genotypes. In the present work… (More)
