WHO Guideline for microcystin-LR is 1 g/litre (drinking water), 1997 (Falconer, I. R. etal.(1994), Toxicity of the blue-green alga (cyanobacterium) Microcystis aeruginosa in drinking water to growing pigs, as an animal model for human injury and risk assessment. Environ. Toxicol. Water Qual. Intern. J., 9, ) Outline of the Experiment １） Animal ： Pig （ Body weight 60 – 65 kg 、 5 heads/group ） ２） Administration ： Oral (microcystin containing water) ３） Dosage ： 1312, 796, 280 and 0 g/kg/day ４） experimental Period ： 8 weeks
Outline of Risk Assessment Minimum Dose （ 280 g/kg/day ） Liver tissue damage. Safety Factor １） Only 1% of lifetime exposure A safety factor of 10 is applied ２） Use of pig data as an animal model for human injury A safety factor of 10 is applied ３） Difference of health condition due to age, other causes of liver damage, and other-----A safety factor of 10 is applied Thus a safety factor 1000 is applied to the lowest doserate. This provide a guideline safe intake for humans of 0.28 g/kg/day, Which should result in no adverse effect as seen by direct liver injury To apply this to a 60kg adults drinking 2L water/day, a consumption, Of water containing 8.4 g microcystin/L should be safe.
4) For tumor prmortion, additional safety factor of 5 or 10 is required Thus a conservative estimate for water safety is 0.84 g microcystin/ L or approximately 1 g/L.

Problems Are toxin genes in cyanobacteria localized ? Do migratory birds carry cyanobacteria ?
SELECTIVE CONTROL OF TOXIC MICROCYSTIS WATERBLOOMS USING LYSINE AND MALONIC ACID
Why do we need selective control of toxic cyanobacterial waterblooms? In Europe, they do not need selective control of toxic cyanobacteria, since they use only drinking. Therefore, They remove phosphate completely in eutrophicated lake water for control of toxic cyanobacteria. As the result, there is no phytoplankton in the lake, also Zooplankton and fish.
In Asia, inland residents have utilized freshwater fish for a major protein source. Therefore, aquaculture is important, and eutrophication is necessary for growth of phytoplankton, zooplankton and fish, but exclusion of toxic cyanobacteria is necessary for human health and aquaculture. As the result, we need to develop a method of selective control of toxic cyanobacteria. As the opposite situation of the European,
Kaya, K. and Sano, T.(1996) Algicidal compounds in yeast extract as a component of microbial culture media. Phycologia, 35(6 Supp.), Two algicidal compounds, lysine and malonic acid, were identified from Yeast extract. Lysine was toxic to only Microcystis (cyano- Bacteria, blue-green algae). Cells of Microcystis viridis NIES-102 were completely killed within 48 hr by lysine at the concentration of 1.0 ppm, whereas lysine was non-toxic to Anabaena and Chlorella species. Also, cells of M. viridis were killed by malonic acid at the concentration of 40 ppm. Why did we select lysine and malonic acid for the control?
We examined effects of lysine and malonic acid on Microcystis Blooms using enclosures. Enclosure 10 m m 10 – 20 cm ABC Lake Sediments Enclosure A: Control Enclosure B: Lysine treatment Enclosure C: Lysine plus malonic acid treatment 1 m 0.5 m Sampling Point

Macrophytes: Seeds of macrophytes (Myriophllum spicatum and Potamogeton crispus L) and water chestnuts (Trapa sp.) were contained in the lake sediment. Monitoring: Water pH, DO, Chlorophill-a, Lysine, Malonic acid, Microcystin, Cell numbers of phytoplankton (cyanobacteria, dyatom,eugllena) and zooplankton (cradoceran ) Results were expressed as average of three sampling points with S. D. Lysine and malonic acid treatments: Lysine was dissolved with water at the concentration of 100g/L, and sprayed with an insecticide sprayer (lysine 10 g/m 2 ). Malonoc acid was sprayed as the same manner as the lysine treatment (malonic acid 10g/m 2 ). Methods:

Conclusion: The treatment with lysine plus malonic acid is an effective method for the control of toxic Microcystis blooms. The ecological and water qualitative changes derived from the treatment suggested that the incorporation cycles of nitrogen and phosphorus in eutrophicated water were switched from toxic cyanobacteria (Microcystis) to non- toxic macrophytes.
Another Methods for Cyanobacterial Control
Dry up ( of Dam Sediments ) Cyanobacterial (Microcystis) cells are resting on dam sediment at low water temperature (below 10 ºC) in winter season. When the dam sediment were dried up, the germination rates of the cells on the sediment were dependent on the water content in the sediment.
