These secondary metabolites are the main focus of this chapter. Cyanobacteria secondary metabolites, whether constitutive or induced, play a key role in their interactions with the environment. Some of these metabolites include taste and odor compounds such as geosmin (GSM) and 2-methylisoborneol (MIB), anti-microbials, terpenoids, lactones, metal chelators, protease inhibitors, indole alkaloids and potent toxins, frequently called cyanobacterial toxins or cyanotoxins (produced by cyanobacteria commonly found in surface water supplies), known to affect a wide range of living organisms. The chapter reviews some of the hazardous secondary metabolites produced by cyanobacteria and their potential transformation products (TPs) formed during various transformation processes.||URI:||https://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/14900||ISBN:||9781118339596||DOI:||10.1002/9781118339558.ch23||Rights:||© 2014 John Wiley and Sons Ltd.
