  • 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)
    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 Biophilia ...
  • Temperature effects explain continental scale distribution of cyanobacterial toxins. 

    Mantzouki, Evanthia; Ibelings, Bas; Fastner, Jutta; Lürling, Miquel; de Senerpont Domis, Lisette; Teurlincz, Sven; Chmura, Damian (MDPI https://doi.org/10.3390/toxins10040156, 2018-04-13)
    MANTZOUKI, E., IBELINGS, B., FASTNER, J., LÜRLING, M., DE SENERPONT DOMIS, L., TEURLINCX, S. and CHMURA, D. 2018. Temperature effects explain continental scale distribution of cyanobacterial toxins. Toxins [online], 10(4), article ID 156. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3390/toxins10040156
    Insight into how environmental change determines the production and distribution of cyanobacterial toxins is necessary for risk assessment. Management guidelines currently focus on hepatotoxins (microcystins). Increasing ...
  • Uptake and depuration of cyanotoxins in the common blue mussel Mytilus edulis. 

    Waack, Julia (Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2017-06-01)
    WAACK, J. 2017. Uptake and depuration of cyanotoxins in the common blue mussel Mytilus edulis. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.
    Cyanobacteria produce a variety of secondary metabolites which possess amongst others antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Being primary producers they are also a vital component within the food web. However, ...
