    The structure of a hepatotoxic peptide from the cyanobacterium Nodularia spumigena was determined using 1D and 2D proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry. The toxin was a cyclic pentapeptide (mol. wt 824.5) with the structure cyclo-(beta-methylisoAsp-Arg-Adda-isoGlu-N-methylde hydrobutyric acid) (Adda: 3-amino-9-methoxy-2,6,8-trimethyl-10-phenyldeca-4,6-dienoic acid).
