The production of microcystin-LR
by cyanobacterial strains was analyzed by Enzyme-Linked ImmunoSorbent Assay (ELISA) method.
Additionally, the EPA has released a pre-publication copy of its proposed Fourth Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR4) which includes both individual cyanotoxins such as cylindrospermopsin, anatoxin-A, microcystin-LR
and nodularin, and also total MCs in aggregate.
(MC-LR), which is the most commonly reported as hepatotoxin is regarded as one of the most toxic microcystins.
All samples were analyzed in triplicate except the kit negative control and the microcystin-LR
standard in Advantage A10 Milli-Q water (MQ-[H.

In a previous study, Hereman and Bittencourt-Oliveira (2012), found in adult plants of lettuce accumulation concentrations of microcystin-LR
equivalent above the recommended to the tolerable daily intake (TDI) for human consumption (0.

The World Health Organization (WHO) defined in the Drinking Water Guidelines for microcystin-LR
in drinking water should not exceed 1 mg/L (WHO, 2006) and a provisional tolerable daily intake (TDI) of 0.
