Jagd auf den Adlermörder – Entdeckung eines neuen Cyanotoxins

Abstract

Hunting down the eagle killer: Vacuolar myelinopathy is a neurological disease affecting wildlife – including the iconic bald eagle – in the United States. Its cause has been elusive for decades, but its occurrence has
been linked to the cyanobacterium Aetokthonos hydrillicola colonizing the invasive aquatic plant Hydrilla verticillata. In a recent study, we found that A. hydrillicola produces a novel highly toxic biindole alkaloid (aetokthonotoxin), and proved that it is causing the disease.
