Caption: Microcystin is a toxin produced by microcystis, a blue-green algae which thrives on phosphorus contamination from leaking septic systems, sewer drainage and runoff from fertilized lawns, farms and cattle feedlots. Contamination from algal blooms in Lake Erie caused a two-day ban on the use of drinking water in Toledo, Ohio, in August, 2014.Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (black), hydrogen (white), oxygen (red) and nitrogen (blue).
