The investigation of the effect of potassium dichromate, zinc sulphate, pesticide esfenvalerate and cyanobacterial toxin of microcystin-LR on Daphnia swimming activity was performed for the first time.
Acute oral toxicity of microcystin-LR, a cyanobacterial hepatotoxin, in mice.

2) But treatment is not foolproof, and in August 2010 microcystin-LR was detected in finished drinking water from three Ohio water systems, although none of the incidents were severe enough to warrant a drinking water advisory.
Characterization of organic anion transporting polypeptide 1b2-null mice: essential role in hepatic uptake/toxicity of phalloidin and microcystin-LR.
OBJECTIVE: We examined the contribution of the transcription factor p53, as well as that of the hepatic uptake transporter for microcystin-LR, organic anion transporting polypeptide 1B3 (OATP1B3), to the cellular response to microcystin-LR exposure.
In the December 2009 issue of Nano Letters Nicholas Kotov and colleagues describe a new biosensor that can rapidly detect microcystin-LR (MC-LR) in drinking water.
Concern regarding these potential health risks has prompted the World Health Organization (WHO) to adopt a provisional guideline value for microcystin-LR [MC-LR; containing leucine (L) and argenine (R) as the variable L-amino acids], the most common microcystin congener, of 1.
This antibody was raised against microcystin-LR but cross-reacts with many of the known microcystin analogues.
