LELONG A., HEGARET H., SOUDANT P. AND BATES S.S. 2012. [] Key Result The sexual reproduction of 14 species has been documented. Fourteen species have now been shown to be toxigenic, although some strains are not always toxic under the testing conditions. The biotic and abiotic factors that modify DA production are reviewed, with a focus on how new discoveries have changed our original hypotheses about control mechanisms. Recent studies confirm that silicate and phosphate limitation trigger DA production…
Phylogenetic relationships of Pseudo-nitzschia subpacifica (Bacillariophyceae) from the Mexican Pacific, and its production of domoic acid in culture
TLDR
It is confirmed that P. subpacifica can produce domoic acid (DA), a neurotoxin responsible for the Amnesic Shellfish Poisoning, under P-limited conditions that could be associated with extraordinary oceanographic events such as the 2013–2016 "Blob" in the northeastern Pacific Ocean.
Direct evidence for toxin production by Pseudo-nitzschia plurisecta (Bacillariophyceae) and extension of its distribution area
TLDR
An amnesic shellfish poisoning risk associated with domoic acid production by the species Pseudo-nitzschia plurisecta is confirmed and the toxin profile is determined, which includes three domeic acid isomers.

Amnesic shellfish poisoning (ASP) is a type of seafood poisoning due to human consumption on shellfish mollusks contaminated with algal toxin, domoic acid (DA) derived from the diatom
The genus Pseudo-nitzschia (Bacillariophyceae) in Malaysia, including new records and a key to species inferred from morphology-based phylogeny
TLDR
For the first time high species richness of Pseudo-nitzschia is recorded in the confined coasts of Malaysia, with a special emphasis on the poroid structure of the striae to aid in species identification.

Toxicity of the Diatom Genus Pseudo-nitzschia (Bacillariophyceae): Insights from Toxicity Tests and Genetic Screening in the Northern Adriatic Sea
TLDR
All subclades of the Pseudo-nitzschia genus contain toxic species and that toxicity appears to be strain dependent, often with geographic partitioning.

Morphology, phylogeny and toxin analysis of Pseudo-nitzschia pseudodelicatissima (Bacillariophyceae) isolated from the Thermaikos Gulf, Greece
TLDR
This study confirms the production of DA by P. pseudodelicatissima in culture and phylogenetic analyses of the large subunit and internal transcribed spacer ribosomal rDNA regions, along with the secondary structure of ITS-2 rDNA region supported the identification.
Toxic Pseudo-nitzschia multistriata (Bacillariophyceae) from the Gulf of Naples: morphology, toxin analysis and phylogenetic relationships with other Pseudo-nitzschia species
TLDR
P. multistriata was the only one found to produce domoic acid among all the Pseudo-nitzschia species from the Gulf of Naples, and this finding raises the number of potentially toxic species in this genus to nine.

Taxonomy and Ecophysiology of Pseudo-nitzschia in the Chesapeake Bay
TLDR
Pseudo-nitzschia abundances were associated with low temperature and high salinity and were highest in winter and spring and the hypothesis that DA is produced as an energy modulation strategy when the light and dark reactions of photosynthesis are decoupled was tested.

TLDR
The repeatable annual nature of the blooms suggests that deterministic forecasting of the timing of future toxic Pseudo-nitzschia spp.
AN OUTBREAK OF DOMOIC ACID POISONING ATTRIBUTED TO THE PENNATE DIATOM PSEUDONITZSCHIA AUSTRALIS 1
TLDR
This is the first confirmed report of DA poisoning since the original 1987 episode in Atlantic Canada caused by Nitzschia pungens Grunow forma multiseries Hasle, and suggests another species of planktonic pennate diatom is capable of producing DA and that herbivorous finfish can act as vectors for this toxin.
A STUDY OF THE PSEUDO‐NITZSCHIA PSEUDODELICATISSIMA/CUSPIDATA COMPLEX (BACILLARIOPHYCEAE): WHAT IS P. PSEUDODELICATISSIMA? 1
TLDR
The description of the four species helps to explain the variation observed in mating experiments on cultures originally designated as P. pseudodelicatissima or P. cuspidata, and they are described as new species based on morphological and molecular data.
Domoic acid accumulation in the sardine Sardina pilchardus and its relationship to Pseudo-nitzschia diatom ingestion
TLDR
Sardine stomach content analysis showed that Pseudo-nitzschia prey reached concentrations as high as 7.8 × 10 6 cells g -1 ; in some cases this diatom genus represented more than 99% of the phytoplanktonic prey identified in the stomachs.
Identification and characterisation of the dominant Pseudo-nitzschia species (Bacillariophyceae) along the NE Spanish coast (Catalonia, NW Mediterranean)
TLDR
Differences in the growth rate and cell yield of the species indicate that biotic factors may play a role in the observed distributional patterns of Pseudo-nitzschia species in the area studied.
