Microcystin-YR MSDS

Microcystin-YR is one of over 80 types of 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.).
