  • Accumulation and detoxication responses of the gastropod Lymnaea stagnalis to single and combined exposures to natural (cyanobacteria) and anthropogenic (the herbicide RoundUp® Flash) stressors.

    LANCE, E., DESPRAT, J., HOLBECH, B.F., GERARD, C., BORMANS, M., LAWTON, L.A., EDWARDS, C. and WIEGAND, C. 2016.Accumulation and detoxication responses of the gastropod lymnaea stagnalis to single and combined exposures to natural (cyanobacteria) and anthropogenic (the herbicide RoundUp® Flash) stressors. Aquatic toxicology [online], 177, pages 116-124. Available from: https://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.aquatox.2016.05.024
    Freshwater gastropods are increasingly exposed to multiple stressors in the field such as the herbicide glyphosate in Roundup formulations and cyanobacterial blooms either producing or not producing microcystins (MCs), ...
  • An investigation into factors influencing the production and degradation of microcystins. 

    Graham, Douglas J. L. (The Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2007-06)
    Microcystins (MCYST) potently inhibit protein phosphatases and these cyclic heptapeptides are powerful hepatotoxins. They are known to be secondary metabolites produced by several species of cyanobacteria. The release ...
  • Mechanistic and toxicity studies of the photocatalytic oxidation of microcystin-LR. 

    Liu, Iain; Lawton, Linda A.; Cornish, Benjamin J. P. A.; Robertson, Peter K. J. (Elsevier http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/journaldescription.cws_home/504091/description#description, 2002-05-31)

    Cyanobacterial toxins present in drinking water sources pose a considerable threat to human health. Conventional water treatment systems have proven unreliable for the removal of these toxins and hence new techniques have ...
  • Processes influencing surface interaction and photocatalytic destruction of microcystins on titanium dioxide photocatalysts. 

    Lawton, Linda A.; Robertson, Peter K. J.; Cornish, Benjamin J. P. A.; Marr, Iain L.; Jaspars, Marcel (Elsevier http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/journaldescription.cws_home/622858/description#description, 2003-01-01)

    Microcystins are a family of hepatotoxic peptides produced by freshwater cyanobacteria. Their occurrence in drinking water is of concern since chronic exposure to these toxins causes tumor promotion. It is therefore essential ...
