Therefore, we investigated the production of protein phosphatase inhibiting microcystins by Antarctic cyanobacteria. We have identified microcystin-LR and for the first time [d-Asp3] microcystin-LR by mass spectrometric analysis in Antarctic cyanobacteria. The microcystins were extracted from a benthic microbial community that was sampled from a meltwater pond (Fresh Pond, McMurdo Ice Shelf, Antarctica). The extracted cyanobacterial cyclic peptides were equivalent to 11.4 ng MC-LR per mg dry weight by semi-quantitative analyses using HPLC-DAD and the protein phosphatase inhibition assay. Furthermore, we were able to identify the presence of cyanobacterial non-ribosomal peptide synthetase (NRPS) and polyketide synthase (PKS) genes in total DNA extracts from the mat community.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Mountfort, Doug</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/7077"/> <dc:creator>Höger, Stefan J.</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
