Microcystin-LR is cyclo(-D-Ala-L-Leu-D-erythro-beta methylisoaspartic acid-(Masp)- L-Arg-(2S,3S,8S,9S)-3-amino-9-methoxy-2,6,8-trimethyl-10-phenyldeca-(4E,6E)-dienoic acid (Adda)-D-isoGlu-N-methyldehydroalanine (Mdha)-).
Microcystin-YR (microcystin containing tyrosine instead of the leucine in microcystin-LR).
Microcystin-RR (microcystin containing arginine instead of the leucine in microcystin-LR) (Fig. 1a).
