Update of risk assessments of main marine biotoxins in the European Union.
This review is an up-to-date compilation of the available literature, including scientific papers, reviews, and EFSA's opinions, on toxicity and risk assessment data on the main marine biotoxins ofExpand
Development of a method for the genetic identification of mussel species belonging to Mytilus, Perna, Aulacomya, and other genera.
Legislation regarding the labeling of processed products is an important issue in the protection of consumer rights. This labeling is especially important in products that cannot be identified on theExpand
Mercury, cadmium and lead levels in samples of the main traded fish and shellfish species in Galicia, Spain
The presence of mercury, cadmium and lead has been studied in raw and processed fish and shellfish of the main traded species in Galicia (Spain) from at least 40 commercial outlets between JanuaryExpand
Cytoskeletal disruption is the key factor that triggers apoptosis in okadaic acid-treated neuroblastoma cells
Okadaic acid (OA) is a tumour promoter that induces apoptosis in several cell models. Following previous findings, the objective of this work was to elucidate the pathways involved in OA-triggeredExpand
Whey protein-based coatings on frozen Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar): Influence of the plasticiser and the moment of coating on quality preservation.
The effects of different whey protein concentrate coating formulations (with or without glycerol or sorbitol in two proportions) on frozen Atlantic salmon quality parameters were evaluated. TheExpand
Azaspiracid-1, a potent, nonapoptotic new phycotoxin with several cell targets.
This paper reports on potential cellular targets of azaspiracid-1 (AZ-1), a new phycotoxin that causes diarrhoeic and neurotoxic symptoms and whose mechanism of action is unknown. In excitableExpand
Tetrodotoxin, an Extremely Potent Marine Neurotoxin: Distribution, Toxicity, Origin and Therapeutical Uses
Tetrodotoxin (TTX) is a potent neurotoxin responsible for many human intoxications and fatalities each year. The origin of TTX is unknown, but in the pufferfish, it seems to be produced byExpand
Molecular Detection of Xenostrobus securis and Mytillus Galloprovincialis Larvae in Galician Coast (Spain)
The mussel species Xenostrobus securis from New Zealand was detected in the Spanish coast recently, in the mouth of the Verdugo River into the Vigo Ria. In view of the great importance of the farmExpand
Study of cytoskeletal changes induced by okadaic acid in BE(2)-M17 cells by means of a quantitative fluorimetric microplate assay.
The diarrhogenic activity of the marine toxin okadaic acid (OA) has been associated to its actin-disrupting effect, which could reflect the loosening of tight junctions in vivo. In this report, weExpand
Collapse of mitochondrial membrane potential and caspases activation are early events in okadaic acid-treated Caco-2 cells.
Diarrhetic Shellfish Poisoning (DSP) results from the consumption of shellfish contaminated with okadaic acid (OA) or one of the dinophysistoxins (DTX). It has been reported that this toxin inducesExpand
