Microcystin-LR MSDS

Microcystin-LR is the most widely encountered and most thoroughly studied of the Microcystins, cyclic heptapeptides that have been shown to be liver toxins, and which are produced by Microcystis aeruginosa and other cyanobacteria. Microcystins have a unique β amino acid side chain termed “Adda,” and variability at the second and fourth amino acid positions in the Adda sequence is the basis of Microcystin nomenclature (e.g., LR, LW, RR, YR, etc.).
