Extracts of "diarrhetic" shellfish toxins from the edible mussel (Mytilus edulis) were tested with biological and chemical assays to determine toxin content. When tested with the standard mouse bioassay, a higher toxicity was detected in most samples compared to that revealed from detection of the diarrhea-causing substances okadaic acid and dinophysistoxin-1 by high-performance liquid chromatography. Routine extraction of toxins for the two assays was carried out with two different solvents… CONTINUE READING
