Microcystins are produced by cyanobacteria carrying microcystin synthetase (mcy) genes in blooms. The present study investigated seasonal variations in concentrations of mcy A and 16S rRNA genes, encoded in the genus Microcystis using real-time PCR, and measured the water quality variables and microcystin concentrations in a hypereutrophic fish pond between June and November 2007. Prior to field survey, the relationship between axenic Microcystis aeruginosa NIES 102 cell abundance and… CONTINUE READING
