Arsenic tolerance of cyanobacterial strains with potential use in biotechnology
Revista Argentina de Microbiología
The arsenic content of various water bodies in Argentina is higher than the acceptable levels for human and animal uses. Cyanobacteria are widely distributed in aquatic environments and can bioaccumulate arsenic (As). This study presents the response of indigenous cyanobacteria to As(III) and As(V), including the species Tolypothrix tenuis, Nostoc muscorum and Nostoc minutum, previously used with biotechnological purposes. As(III) resulted more toxic than As(V) in all cases, causing cell deathdoi:10.1016/s0325-7541(13)70021-x pmid:24165141 fatcat:3gmw262gsjewtgnhdguturtbim
