Effects of microcystin-LR
on patterns of iNOS and cytokine mRNA expression in macrophages in vitro.
The influence of microcystin-LR
on fish phagocytic cells.
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.
Toxin concentrations were determined to be 103 [micro]g microcystin-LR
per gram chlorophyll a.

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
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.
