- Project No 4022
- Project Name Effects of cylindrospermopsin on mouse stem cells
- Lead Organisation SA Water
- Main Researcher Katherine Reid
- Completion Year 2010
This project established a bioassay using mouse embryonic stem cells to assess the effects of the cyanobacterial toxin, cylindrospermopsin, on early embryonic development. Using embryonic stem cells cultured in vitro as a model for embryos in vivo, the project will analysed cytotoxicity of cylindrospermopsin, its effects on cell morphology, and on gene expression.
