Is qPCR a Reliable Indicator of Cyanotoxin Risk in Freshwater?

PMCID: 4926139
PMID: 27338471
DOI: 10.3390/toxins8060172

[…] n using this tool, the authors concluded that higher mcyB-to-phycocyanin ratios corresponded to higher MC cell quotas and that variations in the proportion of MC-producing genotypes could explain the MC net production in Microcystis colonies of different sizes.During the same year, Kurmayer and Kutzenberger [] developed a Taq nuclease assay that also targeted the phycocyanin locus and the mcyB gen […]


Role of toxic and bioactive secondary metabolites in colonization and bloom formation by filamentous cyanobacteria Planktothrix

PMCID: 4892429
PMID: 27307781
DOI: 10.1016/j.hal.2016.01.004

[…] netic structure (see section 5.4). In a few studies, the measurement of toxin synthesis genotype abundance was not found to be a satisfactory method for use in monitoring programs in order to predict MC net production from green-pigmented Planktothrix populations (e.g. ). Particularly for MCs, these contrasting results may be caused by: (1) several cyanobacteria producing MCs frequently co-exist i […]


Genetic Variability of Microcystin Biosynthesis Genes in Planktothrix as Elucidated from Samples Preserved by Heat Desiccation during Three Decades

PLoS One
PMCID: 3827215
PMID: 24265798
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0080177

[…] tructure over three decades support this hypothesis.The increase in the frequency of the mcyA (Dhb) deletion mutant during the 30 year observation period is of significance with regard to the overall MC net production of the population in Lake Zürich. During the earlier survey on mcy mutant genotype abundance [], a total of 103-114 individual filaments of Planktothrix were isolated from a depth-in […]


Ligand Mobility Modulates Immunological Synapse Formation and T Cell Activation

PLoS One
PMCID: 3284572
PMID: 22384241
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0032398

[…] C movement was analyzed with MATLAB (MathWorks, Natick, MA), as previously described . MC track velocity was defined as the total distance traveled by a given MC, divided by its total track duration. MC net displacement was computed as the shortest distance between the position where a single MC first appeared and the position where that MC disappeared from tracking. […]


Seasonal Dynamics of Microcystis spp. and Their Toxigenicity as Assessed by qPCR in a Temperate Reservoir

Mar Drugs
PMCID: 3210603
PMID: 22072994
DOI: 10.3390/md9101715

[…] oxin-producing genotypes in environmental water samples. Although some previous reports have showed a close relationship between the occurrence of certain toxic genotypes (containing toxin genes) and MC net production [], and that it is possible to infer MC concentrations from Microcystis cell numbers [], correlations between MC levels and toxic genotypes numbers are often difficult to obtain [,]. […]
