  • 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)
    LIU, I., LAWTON, L., CORNISH, B. and ROBERTSON, P., 2002. Mechanistic and toxicity studies of the photocatalytic oxidation of microcystin-LR. Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology A. Chemistry. Volume 148 (1-3), pp. 349-354
    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)
    LAWTON, L., ROBERTSON, P., CORNISH, B., MARR, I. and JASPARS, M., 2003. Processes influencing surface interaction and photocatalytic destruction of microcystins on titanium dioxide photocatalysts. Journal of Catalysis. Volume 213 (1) pp. 109-113
    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 ...
