A common type of blue-green algae is finding it easy to adapt to Earth's rising CO2 levels, meaning blue-green algae -- of which there are many toxin-producing varieties -- are even more adept at handling changing climatic conditions than scientists previously supposed.
A team of microbiologists at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) are reporting this finding in the journal PNAS this week, and point here at implications for clean drinking water, swimming safety and freshwater ecosystems. OMS - JANUARY 1999 - Toxic Cyanobacteria in Water: A guide to their public health consequences, monitoring and management. Abstract Identification and quantification of cyanobacteria in water resources is the principal component of cyanotoxin monitoring programmes and can provide an effective early warning system for the development of potentially toxic blooms.
Data on concentrations of total phosphate, nitrate and ammonia are valuable for assessing the potential for cyanobacteria to develop and whether or not nitrogen-fixing species are likely to occur. Whereas methods for these nutrients have been extensively reviewed and internationally harmonised by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), approaches to the species determination and quantification of cyanobacteria are very variable and can be undertaken at different levels of sophistication.

Department of Microbiology, Institute of Biochemistry and Biology, University of Potsdam, Golm, Germany. Microcystins The most frequently reported cyanobacterial toxin is the hepatotoxin microcystin (MCY, Fig. 2).
The general structure of microcystins is cyclo(d-Ala-X-d-MeAsp-Z-Adda-d-Glu-Mdha), in which X and Z represent variable l amino acids. d-MeAsp is d-erythro-ß-methyl-aspartic acid, Mdha is N-methyldehydroalanine, and Adda is (2S,3S,8S,9S)-3-amino-9-methoxy-2,6,8-trimethyl-10-phenyldeca-4,6-dienoic acid (Botes et al., 1984) (Fig. 2). Microcystin is predominantly produced by different genera of freshwater cyanobacteria, including Microcystis, Planktothrix and Anabaena (Fig. 5, Table 1) (Sivonen & Jones, 1999), although it has also been detected in terrestrial strains of the genera Nostoc and Hapalosiphon (Prinsep et al., 1992; Oksanen et al., 2004) or in mats of benthic Phormidium (Izaguirre et al., 2007).
Over 80 variants have been described in the scientific literature, mostly differing in amino acid positions X and Z (Sivonen & Jones, 1999). Figure 2 Nodularin Figure 3 Figure 4.

Image credit: Sarah PageANN ARBOR—Efforts to reduce the amount of phosphorus and other nutrients washing off farm fields and into Lake Erie shifted into overdrive after high levels of a bacterial toxin shut down the drinking water supply to more than 400,000 Toledo-area residents last August. Nutrient levels help determine when and where rapid cyanobacterial buildups occur, as well as the size of those blooms. But what factors control their toxicity? The Great Lakes are home to dozens of common cyanobacterial species, but only a few are toxic troublemakers. "We know what causes these blooms: It's nutrients from farm runoff.
Dick said he hopes the study yields insights that can be incorporated into computer-based ecological models used to forecast cyanobacterial blooms.

SCIENCE DAILY 03/07/12 Global Warming Favors Proliferation of Toxic Cyanobacteria. Cyanobacterial populations, primitive aquatic microorganisms, are frequently-encountered in water bodies especially in summer. Their numbers have increased in recent decades and scientists suspect that global warming may be behind the phenomenon, and are particularly concerned by the increase in toxic cyanobacteria, which affect human and animal health. Cyanobacteria are among the most primitive living beings, aged over 3,500 million years old. These aquatic microorganisms helped to oxygenate Earth's atmosphere. At present their populations are increasing in size without stopping. It appears that global warming may be behind the rise in their numbers and may also lead toan increase in the amount of toxins produced by some of these populations.

Cyanobacteria. By producing oxygen as a gas as a by-product of photosynthesis, cyanobacteria are thought to have converted the early reducing atmosphere into an oxidizing one, which dramatically changed the composition of life forms on Earth by stimulating biodiversity and leading to the near-extinction of oxygen-intolerant organisms. According to endosymbiotic theory, the chloroplasts found in plants and eukaryotic algae evolved from cyanobacterial ancestors via endosymbiosis. Ecology A cyanobacteria bloom near Fiji Aquatic cyanobacteria are known for their extensive and highly visible blooms that can form in both freshwater and marine environments. The blooms can have the appearance of blue-green paint or scum.
Characteristics Cyanobacteria are a photosynthetic nitrogen fixing group that survive in wide variety of habitat, soil and water. Nitrogen fixation Cyanobacteria are arguably the most successful group of microorganisms on earth.
