CHEMOTAXONOMY OF CYANOBACTERIA Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The fatty acid-based classification system divides cyanobacteria into four groups. These groups include strains that contain C 18 fatty acids with three, four or no double bonds. The fatty acid composition of several cyanobacterial strains that we have analysed suggests the existence of a fifth group that consists of C 18 polyunsaturated fatty acids with no more than two double bonds.
