Compounds of the trace element vanadium have been shown to mimic insulin effects in in vitro and in vivo systems. Vanadium compounds have emerged as agents for potential use in diabetes therapy. In our work we show the possibility of obtaining enriched biomass of cyanobacteria genus Spirulina (S. platensis and S. maxima) with vanadium in organic form. We have investigated the accumulation of vanadium by the cells of cyanobacteria S. platensis and S. maxima by adding to cultural medium both the… CONTINUE READING
