Paralytic shellfish toxins of two clonal cultures of Alexandrium minutum isolated during the 1993 toxic shellfish events in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, were analyzed using high-performance liquid chromatography. Toxin composition profiles of both cultures showed neosaxitoxin (> 65 mole%) as the principal toxin, with saxitoxin and gonyautoxins (GTX1-4) as minor components. Neither C-toxins (C1-4) nor GTX5-6 were detectable in the two isolates. Bay of Plenty isolates of A. minutum have a… CONTINUE READING
