Oxygen-radical-mediated toxic effects of the red tide flagellate Chattonella marina on Vibrio alginolyticus
Toxic mechanisms of the red tide flagellate, Chattonella marina, collected in 1985 from Kagoshima Bay, Japan, were studied at the subcellular level. C. marina was found to reduce ferricytochrome c atExpand

Extracellular polysaccharide-protein complexes of a harmful alga mediate the allelopathic control it exerts within the phytoplankton community
The goal of this study was to examine the significance of allelopathy by the raphidophyte Heterosigma akashiwo in a multispecies phytoplankton community in the field. Towards this aim, we soughtExpand

Presence of the distinct systems responsible for superoxide anion and hydrogen peroxide generation in red tide phytoplankton Chattonella marina and Chattonella ovata
Raphidophycean flagellates, Chattonella marina and C. ovata, are harmful red tide phytoplankters; blooms of these phytoplankters often cause severe damage to fish farming. Previous studies haveExpand

Lectin-induced enhancement of superoxide anion production by red tide phytoplankton
Chattonella marina, a raphidophycean flagellate, is a highly toxic red tide phytoplankton which causes severe damage to fish farming. Recent studies demonstrated that Chattonella spp. continuouslyExpand

Preparation characteristics of water-in-oil-in-water multiple emulsions using microchannel emulsification.
Microchannel (MC) emulsification is a novel technique for preparing monodispersed emulsions. This study demonstrates preparing water-in-oil-in-water (W/O/W) emulsions using MC emulsification. TheExpand
