First evidence of an extensive northern European distribution of azaspiracid poisoning (AZP) toxins in shellfish.
Azaspiracids have recently been identified as the toxins responsible for a series of human intoxications in Europe since 1995, following the consumption of cultured mussels (Mytilus edulis) from theExpand

First evidence of azaspiracids (AZAs): A family of lipophilic polyether marine toxins in scallops (Argopecten purpuratus) and mussels (Mytilus chilensis) collected in two regions of Chile.
Azaspiracids are a family of lipophilic polyether marine biotoxins that have caused a number of human intoxication incidents in Europe since 1995 following the consumption by consumers of intoxicatedExpand

The first identification of azaspiracids in shellfish from France and Spain.
Incidents of human intoxications throughout Europe, following the consumption of mussels have been attributed to Azaspiracid Poisoning (AZP). Although first discovered in Ireland, the search for theExpand

Strategies to avoid the mis-identification of anatoxin-a using mass spectrometry in the forensic investigation of acute neurotoxic poisoning.
Anatoxin-a (AN) is a potent neurotoxin, produced by a number of cyanobacterial species, and consumption of freshwater contaminated with this toxin has led to animal deaths. Forensic investigations ofExpand

Anatoxin-a elicits an increase in peroxidase and glutathione S-transferase activity in aquatic plants.
Although the toxic effects of cyanotoxins on animals have been examined extensively, little research has focused on their effects on macrophytes and macroalgae. To date only microcystins have beenExpand
