GENETIC POPULATION STRUCTURE OF PSEUDO‐NITZSCHIA PUNGENS (BACILLARIOPHYCEAE) FROM THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST AND THE NORTH SEA 1

Results suggested that the populations of P. pungens recently mixed in the Juan de Fuca eddy region but did not exchange genetic material by sexual reproduction, suggesting that the species may be cryptic, important for bloom prediction and aiding the identification of molecular markers that can be used for rapid detection assay development.

Bacterial community composition differs with species and toxigenicity of the diatom Pseudo-nitzschia

The hypothesis that bacterial communities respond to DA or other species-specific differences in the environments created by Pseudo-nitzschia strains is supported.

'One toxicology', 'ecosystem health' and 'one health'.

'One Health' as a discipline links human and veterinary medicine as co-equal partners in an increasingly efficient joint venture into health promotion and prioritised research and 'One Toxicology' is proposed to help hold toxicological sciences together and maintain intimate connections to medicine in general.

Reticulate Evolution and Marine Organisms: The Final Frontier?

This review provides examples of genetic exchange that have come to light largely as a result of analyses of molecular markers and Comparisons among these markers and between these loci and morphological characters have provided numerous examples of marine microorganisms, plants and animals that possess the signature of mosaic genomes.

The gene-rich genome of the scallop Pecten maximus

The genome assembly of Pecten maximus and its annotated gene set provide a high-quality platform for a wide range of investigations, including studies on such disparate topics as shell biomineralization, pigmentation, vision and resistance to algal toxins.

BIOACTIVE PROTEINS, PEPTIDES, AND AMINO ACIDS FROM MACROALGAE 1

An overview of the important bioactive amino‐acid‐containing compounds that have been identified in macroalgae and the potential of macroalgal proteins as substrates for the generation of biofunctional peptides for utilization as functional foods to provide specific health benefits will be discussed.

Distribution and ecology of Pseudo-nitzschia species (Bacillariophyceae) in surface waters of the Weddell Sea (Antarctica)

The distribution of six Pseudo-nitzschia species and their relationship with environmental conditions were studied for the first time in a vast zone of the Weddell Sea (∼61–77°S, Antarctica) using light and scanning electron microscopy to examine phytoplankton abundance and composition.

Pseudo-nitzschia sp. cf. pseudodelicatissima — a confirmed producer of domoic acid from the northern Gulf of Mexico

This study unequivocally establishes P. pseudodelicatissima as a source of DA in the northern Gulf of Mexico and suggests that rapidly growing, rather than nutrient-limited, popula- tions of this diatom should yield maximum net DA production rates and DA cell quotas.

Ecophysiology and Metabolism of ASP Toxin Production

What is examined in detail is the change in cellphysiology that may accompany: a) cell deformities that tend to appear after a certain period in culture, b) the decrease in diatom cell size due to vegetative division, or c)sexual reproduction in mixtures of clonal cultures.

CONFIRMATION OF DOMOIC ACID PRODUCTION BY PSEUDONITZSCHIA AUSTRALIS (BACILLARIOPHYCEAE) CULTURES 1

Hydrographic data suggest that areas such as Monterey Bay might be “hot spots” for domoic acid‐producing blooms, and long‐term historical records do not indicate previous blooms of this species on the Pacific coast, this is probably because it has been often misidentified as Nitzschia seriata Hasle.

MORPHOLOGY OF THE MARINE DIATOM NITZSCHIA NAVIS‐VARINGICA, SP. NOV. (BACILLARIOPHYCEAE), ANOTHER PRODUCER OF THE NEUROTOXIN DOMOIC ACID

A new marine diatom is found to produce the neurotoxin domoic acid (DA), better known from several species of Pseudo‐nitzschia Peragallo and one species of Amphora Ehrenberg, which is therefore more widespread among diatoms than previously thought.

DOMOIC ACID PRODUCTION IN NITZSCHIA SP. (BACILLARIOPHYCEAE) ISOLATED FROM A SHRIMP‐CULTURE POND IN DO SON, VIETNAM

Domoic acid (DA), a neuroexcitatory amino acid, was detected in batch culture of the newly recognized species Nitzschia navis‐varingica Lundholm et Moestrup, and was confirmed by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry.
