Characterization of Dinophysis spp. (Dinophyceae, Dinophysiales) from the mid‐Atlantic region of the United States1

Due to the increasing prevalence of Dinophysis spp. and their toxins on every US coast in recent years, the need to identify and monitor for problematic Dinophysis populations has become apparent.

Dinophysis Toxins: Causative Organisms, Distribution and Fate in Shellfish

Several Dinophysis species produce diarrhoetic toxins (okadaic acid and dinophysistoxins) and pectenotoxins, and cause gastointestinal illness, Diarrhetic Shellfish Poisoning (DSP), even at low cell

Shellfish lipophilic toxin profile and toxic phytoplankton species along eastern Adriatic coast

Lipophilic toxins were analysed in shellfish along eastern Adriatic coast during one-year period. Samples which provided a positive mouse bioassay test (MBA) for lipophilic toxins were analysed by

New Knowledge on Distribution and Abundance of Toxic Microalgal Species and Related Toxins in the Northwestern Black Sea

Numerous potentially toxic plankton species commonly occur in the Black Sea, and phycotoxins have been reported. However, the taxonomy, phycotoxin profiles, and distribution of harmful microalgae in

Notes on the Cultivation of Two Mixotrophic Dinophysis Species and Their Ciliate Prey Mesodinium rubrum

Large differences in cell toxin quota were observed in the same Dinophysis strains under different experimental conditions, which highlight the ciliate strain-specific response to prey and its importance to mass production of M. rubrum and Dinphysis cultures.



Toxicity and ribosomal DNA of the dinoflagellate Dinophysis sacculus (Dinophyta)

Comparison with sequences obtained in the laboratory from other dinoflagellate genera such as Alexandrium and with those reported in the genomic databases suggests that the ITS–5.8S region could be used as a molecular marker for detection of D. sacculus.

Occurrence of diarrhetic shellfish poisoning (DSP) toxins in clams (Ruditapes decussatus) from Tunis north lagoon

Data reveal that DSP toxicity in clams of Tunis north lagoon is low according to European regulatory limit (160 μg OA eq/kg shellfish meat), however, a potential threat is represented by DSP toxic species as D. sacculus and provides grounds for widen and reinforcing sanitary control of the phycotoxin measures in the region.

High performance liquid chromatography analysis of diarrhetic toxins inDinophysis spp. from the French coast

The results of okadaic acid analyses by high performance liquid chromatography, on planktonic samples collected during the summer of 1991, show that D. sacculus, the major Dinophysis species, throughout this period, showed low okadaing acid content in raw extract, whereas toxic levels were 3- to 12-fold higher in sorted samples than in raw ones.

Accumulation of Phycotoxins in the Mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis from the Central Adriatic Sea

Survey of DSP(Diarrheic Shellfish Poisoning)toxin profiles in the mussel mytilus galloprovincialis from coastal waters of the Central Adriatic Sea, over the years 1995 to 2001 demonstrate that

First Evidence of Okadaic Acid in Mytilus galloprovincialis Mussels, Collected in a Mediterranean Lagoon, Tunisia

The results reported here, although based on limited sampling, demonstrate for the first time the existence of a risk to public health from diarrheic shellfish poisoning in cultivated bivalve mollusc in Tunisia.

Harmful Dinophysis species: A review

A Survey of Shellfish Toxicity in the Central Adriatic Sea

A long term survey of the phytoplankton community has been conducted and the origin of mussel toxicity was traced to Dinophysis sacculus, a suspected toxic species.

First successful culture of the marine dinoflagellate Dinophysis acuminata

The dinoflagellate genus Dinophysis in- cludes several species that cause diarrhetic shellfish poi- soning, none of which have yet been established in cul- ture. We report on the maintenance of
