The strain NIVA-CYA 92 of Oscillatoria formosa Bory ex Gormont produces phycotoxins with neurotoxic properties. Chemical analysis by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry of a water extract of lyophilized material of the organism showed the presence of only homoanatoxin-a. The mechanism of action of homoanatoxin-a on peripheral cholinergic nerves is so far(More)
The marine flagellate Prymnesium patelliferum produces toxins lethal to fish. The toxin extracted from the alga has haemolytic, cytotoxic and neurotoxic effects, but the action mechanisms of the toxin are not known in detail. We have examined the toxin effects on the voltage sensitive Ca(2+)-currents, the cytosolic Ca(2+)-level ([Ca2+]i) and the prolactin(More)
The purpose of the present work was to characterise the effects of trimethyltin on the release of acetylcholine from parasympathetic nerves and its effect on the postjunctional cholinergic stimulation of a smooth muscle. The guinea-pig trachea has been used as a model. Prejunctionally, trimethyltin (3.0 × 10(-3) M) significantly enhanced in a reversible(More)
