Abstract

Some literature data suggest that one of the possible roles of the cyanotoxin cylindrospermopsin (CYN) is forcing other phytoplankton species in the environment to produce alkaline phosphatase, which enables the cyanobacterium to take up the enzymatically liberated phosphate. In this study, cultures of a planktonic green alga, Scenedesmus obtusus (Chlorophyta, Sphaeropleales), were treated with CYN producer Aphanizomenon (Cyanobacteria, Nostocales) crude extract (C+), with non-CYN producer Aphanizomenon crude extract (C−), and with non-CYN producer Aphanizomenon crude extract supplemented with CYN (C−+C). The results showed that C+ treatment induced both acidic and alkaline phosphatases of the studied cosmopolitan green alga, which otherwise was neither sensitive to the relatively high CYN concentration, nor to phosphate limitation. In cases of C− and C−+C treatments, these phenomena were not observed. Several studies suggest that additional compounds may support CYN action. The results presented here suggest in a more direct way that other components present in the cellular matrix of the producer organism itself are involved in the effects of CYN, activation of phosphatases (not only alkaline ones) among them. These other components are absent in C− crude extract or cannot actively contribute to the effects of exogenously added CYN.
