  • An investigation into the biodegradation of peptide cyanotoxins (microcystins and nodularin) by novel gram-positive bacteria. 

    Welgamage Don, Aakash Channa Dharshan (Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2012-02)
    Cyanobacterial secondary metabolites, microcystins (MC) and nodularin (NOD) have become common contaminants in most aquatic ecosystems over recent years presenting a hazard to animal and human health. Unfortunately, ...
  • Investigation of novel methods to remove the cyanotoxin, Cylindrospermopsin, from drinking water. 

    Chandu, Vijith Cholakkal Parambil (Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2013-04)
    The widespread distribution of cyanobacteria and their toxic effects on humans has become a major concern for researchers. Cyanobacteria are a group of oxygenic phototrophic bacteria that exhibit an enormous diversity ...
  • Investigation of the production and isolation of bioactive compounds from cyanobacteria. 

    Hameed, Shaista (Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences., 2013-05)
    Due to heavy nutrient load and adverse climate change the occurrence of toxic cyanobacterial blooms have significantly increased during the last decades. Nodularia spumigena is one of the dominant toxic cyanobacteria which ...
  • Monitoring and regulating cyanobacterial metabolites (microcystins and geosmin) in aquatic systems. 

    Pestana, Carlos Joao (Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2012-04)
    Cyanobacterial secondary metabolites can cause serious harm to animals and humans (cyanotoxins) and can have a major financial impact on the potable water and aquaculture industries (taste and odour compounds). ...
  • Optimisation of high value metabolite production from benthic marine dinoflagellate Prorocentrum lima. 

    Praptiwi, Radisti Ayu (Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2014-03)
    Toxins produced by harmful algal blooms (HABs) are known to pose contamination risks to seafood products (e.g. fish and shellfish) consumed by human. In order to control contamination risks, monitoring regimes have to ...
  • Overcoming the seasonal variations in fitness of the amphipod Corophium Volutator as an environmental toxicology test species using laboratory cultured specimens. 

    McGee, Donall (Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2014-10)
    The marine amphipod Corophium volutator is an important source of food for many fish and wading birds, making it an important species in an estuarine environment and a relevant toxicological test species. Historical data ...
  • Photocatalytic degradation of eleven microcystin variants and nodularin by TiO2 coated glass microspheres. 

    Pestana, Carlos J.; Edwards, Christine; Prabhu, Radhakrishna; Robertson, Peter K. J.; Lawton, Linda A. (Elsevier http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jhazmat.2015.07.016, 2015-12-30)
    PESTANA, C. J., EDWARDS, C., PRABHU, R., ROBERTSON, P. K. J. and LAWTON, L. A., 2015. Photocatalytic degradation of eleven microcystin variants and nodularin by TiO2 coated glass microspheres. Journal of Hazardous Materials, Vol. 300, pp. 347-353.
    Microcystins and nodularin are toxic cyanobacterial secondary metabolites produced by cyanobacteria that pose a threat to human health in drinking water. Conventional water treatment methods often fail to remove these ...
  • Purification, detection and biological effects of cyanobacterial toxins. 

    McElhiney, Jacqueline (The Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 1999-05)
    LAWTON, L. A., MCELHINEY, J. and EDWARDS, C., 1999. Purification of closely eluting hydrophobic microcystins (peptide cyanotoxins) by normal-phase and reversed-phase flash chromatography. Journal of Chromatography A 848, pp. 515-522
     
    MCELHINEY, J., LAWTON, L. A., EDWARDS, C. and GALLACHER, S., 1998. Development of a bioassay employing the desert locus (Schistocerca gregaria) for the detection of saxitoxin and related compounds in cyanobacteria and shellfish. Toxicon, 36 (2), pp. 417-420
     
    The aesthetic beauty of a landscape is a very subjective issue: every person has their own opinions and their own idea of what beauty is. However, all people have a common evolutionary history, and, according to the ...
