Cyanobacterial Toxins

The cyanobacteria are proving to be a source of a large number of novel organic compounds with biological activity. Among the many compounds found and characterised to date, many are toxic and have been suspected as the cause of deaths in animals (including humans). Below are links to further information on some of these toxins and their biological targets. Information on other toxins will be added to the list in the future.
