Filterfeeders, such as bivalves, are highly affected during toxic cyanobacterial blooms, as they are non-selective and may use the cyanobacteria as main nutrition source. The freshwater mussel Dreissena polymorpha, living in lakes and rivers coexisting with cyanobacteria, was exposed to 100 microg L(-1) microcystin-LR (MC-LR) for up to three days. MC-LR concentration in mussel tissue and surrounding media was quantified by HPLC-PDA during uptake and depuration phase, revealing an immediate… CONTINUE READING
