A predictive model to estimate total skin tetrodotoxin in the newt Taricha granulosa.

Abstract

We developed a predictive model to estimate the total amount of tetrodotoxin (TTX) in the skin of individual newts (Taricha granulosa) based on measures of the amount of TTX present in dorsal skin. We found that regions of skin on a newt could be reliably differentiated using granular gland density and that patterns of variation in granular gland density… (More)
