In southern Brazil, mixotrophic dinoflagellates belonging to the Dinophysis acuminata complex have recently been involved in diarrheic shellfish poisoning episodes through the production of lipophilic toxins such as okadaic acid (OA) and dinophysistoxin-1 (DTX-1). The present investigation used a combination of laboratory cultures and field surveys at three(More)
Toxigenic Dinophysis spp. are obligate mixotrophic dinoflagellates that require a constant supply of prey-Mesodinium rubrum-to achieve long-term growth by means of kleptoplasty. Mesodinium rubrum is, however, a fast moving, jumping ciliate exhibiting an effective escape response from suspensivorous predators. In the present study, a series of laboratory(More)
