This paper reports on the first occurrence of fairly high numbers of Alexandrium ostenfeldii along the Emilia Romagna coasts (Italy). Detailed liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) analyses of the toxin profile were performed on a strain of the organism collected in November 2003, isolated during the event and grown in culture. Selected ion monitoring (SIM) and multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) experiments were carried out for detection of spirolides and paralytic shellfish poisoning… Expand
Complex toxin profile of Mytilus galloprovincialis from the Adriatic sea revealed by LC-MS.
TLDR
Interestingly, yessotoxin (YTX) and its analogues were still present in mussel polar extracts but YTX itself was not the major toxin contained in mussels, and the presence of pectenotoxin-2 seco acid and its putative epimer was also assessed. Expand
Spirolide toxin profile of Adriatic Alexandrium ostenfeldii cultures and structure elucidation of 27-hydroxy-13,19-didesmethyl spirolide C.
TLDR
This paper reports on the determination of the toxin profile of batch cultures of Alexandrium ostenfeldii established from water samples collected along the Emilia-Romagna coasts (Italy) in November 2003, and highlights the occurrence of a new component, 27-hydroxy-13,19-didesmethylspirolide C, whose structure was fully elucidated by NMR.

Toxin Variability Estimations of 68 Alexandrium ostenfeldii (Dinophyceae) Strains from The Netherlands Reveal a Novel Abundant Gymnodimine
TLDR
A multi-clonal approach adds new analogues to the increasing number of compounds in these toxin classes and revealed a high strain variability in cell quota and in toxin profile of toxic compounds within a single population. Expand
Toxic strains of the Alexandrium ostenfeldii complex in southern South America (Beagle Channel, Argentina)
TLDR
This is the first confirmed occurrence of spirolides in mussels and plankton from Argentina, which highlights the importance of monitoring these toxins and their producing organisms to protect public health and improve the management of shellfish resources. Expand
Characterization of spirolide producing Alexandrium ostenfeldii (Dinophyceae) from the western Arctic
TLDR
This study provides the first record and a characterization of Alexandrium ostenfeldii in the western Arctic and identified all Greenland strains as members of a NW Atlantic spirolide producing phylogenetic clade. Expand
Phycotoxin composition and distribution in plankton fractions from the German Bight and western Danish coast
From the German Bight along Jutland to the western Skagerrak, we found representatives of almost all groups of phycotoxins known to occur in North Sea plankton. Identification was by liquidExpand
Differences in the toxin profiles of Alexandrium ostenfeldii (Dinophyceae) strains isolated from different geographic origins: Evidence of paralytic toxin, spirolide, and gymnodimine.
TLDR
The toxin profiles determined in this study provide further evidence of the taxonomic complexity of this species and showed that the studied strains belonged to distinct molecular clades. Expand
First identification of azaspiracid and spirolides in Mesodesma donacium and Mulinia edulis from Northern Chile.
TLDR
This is the first report of the occurrence of these groups of toxins in Chile and suggests that it is necessary to monitor routinely these substances to warrant public health and shellfish exportations. Expand
Comparison of amnesic, paralytic and lipophilic toxins profiles in cockle (Acanthocardia tuberculata) and smooth clam (Callista chione) from the central Adriatic Sea (Croatia)
TLDR
This research had revealed the differences in the accumulation of ASP, PSP and LT toxins between the two studied species, as Acanthocardia tuberculata showed more diverse profile with higher concentrations of analysed toxins. Expand
Quantification and profiling of lipophilic marine toxins in microalgae by UHPLC coupled to high-resolution orbitrap mass spectrometry
TLDR
The generic extraction and full-scan HRMS approach offers an excellent quantitative performance and simultaneously allows to profile analogues and metabolites of marine toxins in microalgae. Expand

Discrimination of the toxigenic dinoflagellates Alexandrium tamarense and A. ostenfeldii in co-occurring natural populations from Scottish coastal waters
TLDR
RRNA probes for A. ostenfeldii are useful, albeit only semi-quantitative, tools to detect and discriminate these species in field studies in mixed Phytoplankton assemblages. Expand
Association of the gonyaulacoid dinoflagellate Alexandrium ostenfeldii with spirolide toxins in size-fractionated plankton
Spirolides are pharmacologically active macrocyclic imines discovered in shellfish and plankton sizefractions collected from near-surface waters along the southeastern coast of Nova Scotia (NS),Expand
Detection and identification of spirolides in norwegian shellfish and plankton.
TLDR
Analysis of mussel extracts from Skjer in the spring of 2002 and 2003, using liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry, revealed the presence of several new spirolides, the first confirmed occurrence of spirollides in mussels and plankton from Norway. Expand
The marine dinoflagellate Alexandrium ostenfeldii (Dinophyceae) as the causative organism of spirolide shellfish toxins
TLDR
Detailed morphological examination of field specimens and cultured cells of A. ostenfeldii showed that in most major aspects specimens from the western Atlantic coast closely resemble this species as described from Scandinavian waters, confirming it as the primary source of spirolides in this region. Expand
Structural study of spirolide marine toxins by mass spectrometry
TLDR
Collection of results and the fragmentation scheme proposed for the main component of the extract enabled elucidation of the structures of some uncharacterized spirolides and some biogenetically related compounds present at previously unreported masses. Expand
Characterization of spirolides a, c, and 13-desmethyl c, new marine toxins isolated from toxic plankton and contaminated shellfish.
TLDR
Three additional marine toxins, spirolides A, C, and 13-desmethyl-C (7), were isolated from contaminated scallops and phytoplankton collections obtained from a Nova Scotian aquaculture site, and this is related to the presence of a cyclic imine function in all these compounds. Expand
Structural study of spirolide marine toxins by mass spectrometry
TLDR
This study has focused on mass spectrometric characterization of the main component of this extract, 13-desmethyl spirolide C, and proposed a fragmentation scheme for this toxin to explain the formation of the collision-induced fragments. Expand
Spirolide composition of micro-extracted pooled cells isolated from natural plankton assemblages and from cultures of the dinoflagellate Alexandrium ostenfeldii.
TLDR
Combining these techniques represents a highly sensitive method for the analysis of marine toxins within complex plankton matrices, even when the toxigenic species is in low abundance, by enrichment of the target organism. Expand

The optimal conditions were established for extraction of paralytic shellfish toxins from a Danish clone of Alexandrium tamarense using extraction with acetic acid and HCl in the concentration range 0.01–1.0 N, with best results as judged from the total amount of toxins and the toxin profile obtained.
