However, a polysaccharide from a closely related species Nostoc
flagilliforme possesses anti-viral effects (Kanekiyo et al.
For example, Nostoc
photobiont in homoiomerous gels such as Collema seem to mimic gel-like free-living Nostoc
genties mels-vabakteres isskiria citotoksina--cianobakterina, kuris pasizymi algicidiniu, herbicidiniu, priesgrybiniu ir antibakteriniu poveikiu (Verpritskii et al.
Isolation, primary sequence determination, and disulfide bond structure of cyanovirin-N, an anti-HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) protein from the cyanobacterium Nostoc
The blue green algal members such as Nostoc
and Oscillatoria species were selected for phycoremediation of municipal wastewater.

the cyanobacterium Nostoc
commune, annual grasses, and annual forbs.
Geosiphon pyriforme, a fungus forming endocytobiosis with Nostoc
(cyanobacteria), is an ancestral member of the Glomales: evidence by SSU rRNA analysis.
According to this theory, the toxin becomes more concentrated as it moves up the food chain from the microbes, Nostoc
cyanobacteria, to tropical plants called cycads to bats to the Chamorro people (SN: 8/14/04, p.
CV-N is a novel protein isolated from the cyanobacterium, Nostoc
ellipsosporum (blue-green algae).
We found that the different strains have a high sequence similarity in the 23S rRNA gene region, and that Anabaena and Nostoc
are the two most closely related genera.
