Cyanopeptolins - cyanotoxins in the shadow of the famous microcystins

Cyanotoxins are a structurally diverse group of secondary metabolites often co-produced by various species of cyanobacteria. These metabolites can be classified by their toxic mode of action, including hepatoxins, neurotoxins, and dermal toxins. Other than the well-known microcystins, we know much less about the stability and potency of the many other cyanotoxins.
