Abstract
Cyanobacteria produce a number of bioactive compounds, most of them are oligopeptides. Almost all are known from freshwater species. The aim of this study was to search for marine and brackish water species producing bioactive compounds. To reach this goal, new strains were isolated from Norwegian and Pakistani coastal waters. These and additional strains from NIVA, UiO and UiB culture collections (24 in total), belonging to Chroococcales and Oscillatoriales, were identified based on morphology and sequencing of the partial cpcBA phycocyanin DNA and partial 16S rDNA-regions. Their systematic position was determined by phylogenetic analyses. The bioactivity was t...
