Massive cyanobacterial water blooms are serious environmental and health problems worldwide. While some cyanobacterial toxins such as peptide microcystins have been investigated extensively, other toxic components of cyanobacteria (e.g. lipopolysaccharides, LPS) are poorly understood. The present study characterized endotoxin activities of LPS isolated from… CONTINUE READING
