  abstract  = {The whole-cell protein-profiling technique was
evaluated for studying differences in banding pattern of three
different species of Cyanobacteria i.e. Anabaena fertilissima,
Aulosira fertilissima and Westiellopsis prolifica under the influence
of four different pesticides-2,4-D (Ethyl Ester of 2,4-Dichloro
Phenoxy Acetic Acid), Pencycuron (N-[(4-chlorophenyl)methyl]-Ncyclopentyl-
N'–phenylurea), Endosulfan (6,7,8,9,10,10hexachloro-
oxide) and Tebuconazole (1-(4-Chlorophenyl)-4,4-dimethyl-3-(1,2,4-
triazol-1-ylmethyl)pentan-3-ol). Whole-cell extracts were obtained by
sonication treatment (Sonifier cell disruptor -Branson Digital Sonifier
S-450D, USA) and were analyzed by sodium dodecyl sulfate
polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE). SDS-PAGE
analyses of the total protein profile of Anabaena fertilissima,
Aulosira fertilissima and Westiellopsis prolifica showed a linear
decrease in the protein content with increasing pesticide stress when
administered to different concentrations of 2, 4-D, Pencycuron,
Endosulfan and Tebuconazole. The results indicate that different
stressors exert specific effects on cyanobacterial protein synthesis.},
