Brevenal inhibits Pacific ciguatoxin-1B-induced neurosecretion from bovine chromaffin cells 2009 1040 Ciguatoxins and brevetoxins are neurotoxic cyclic polyether compounds produced by dinoflagellates, which are responsible for ciguatera and neurotoxic shellfish poisoning (NSP) respectively. Recently, brevenal, a natural compound was found to specific...
A competitive ELISA to detect brevetoxins from Karenia brevis (formerly Gymnodinium breve) in seawater, shellfish, and mammalian body fluid 2009 1817 We developed a competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to analyze brevetoxins, using goat anti-brevetoxin antibodies obtained after immunization with keyhole limpet hemocyanin- brevetoxin conjugates, in combination with a three-step s...
Effects of inhaled brevetoxins in allergic airways: Toxin–allergen interactions and pharmacologic intervention 2009 1388 During a Florida red tide, brevetoxins produced by the dinoflagellate Karenia brevis become aerosolized and cause airway symptoms in humans, especially in those with pre-existing airway disease (e.g., asthma). To understand these toxin-induced airway...
New fish-killing alga in coastal Delaware produces neurotoxins 2009 2219 Ten fish mortality events, involving primarily Atlantic menhaden, occurred from early July through September 2000 in several bays and creeks in Delaware, USA. Two events involved large mortalities estimated at 1–2.5 million fish in Bald Eagle Creek...
