Role of illumination intensity in microcystin development using Microcystis aeruginosa as the model algae.

Microcystis aeruginosa (M. aeruginosa) is one of the most common genera of cyanobacteria in algal blooms. In the present work, the impact of the illumination intensity on the growth of M. aeruginosa has been studied and a grinding method for the extraction of intracellular microcystins (MCs) was developed. The variations of algal density, pH, total… CONTINUE READING
