Neurology of ciguatera. (1/37)

Ciguatera is a widespread ichthyosarcotoxaemia with dramatic and clinically important neurological features. This severe form of fish poisoning may present with either acute or chronic intoxication syndromes and constitutes a global health problem. Ciguatera poisoning is little known in temperate countries as a potentially global problem associated with human ingestion of large carnivorous fish that harbour the bioaccumulated ciguatoxins of the photosynthetic dinoflagellate Gambierdiscus toxicus. This neurotoxin is stored in the viscera of fish that have eaten the dinoflagellate and concentrated it upwards throughout the food chain towards progressively larger species, including humans. Ciguatoxin accumulates in all fish tissues, especially the liver and viscera, of "at risk" species. Both Pacific (P-CTX-1) and Caribbean (C-CTX-1) ciguatoxins are heat stable polyether toxins and pose a health risk at concentrations above 0.1 ppb. The presenting signs of ciguatera are primarily neurotoxic in more than 80% of cases. Such include the pathognomonic features of postingestion paraesthesiae, dysaesthesiae, and heightened nociperception. Other sensory abnormalities include the subjective features of metallic taste, pruritus, arthralgia, myalgia, and dental pain. Cerebellar dysfunction, sometimes diphasic, and weakness due to both neuropathy and polymyositis may be encountered. Autonomic dysfunction leads to hypotension, bradycardia, and hypersalivation in severe cases. Ciguatoxins are potent, lipophilic sodium channel activator toxins which bind to the voltage sensitive (site 5) sodium channel on the cell membranes of all excitable tissues. Treatment depends on early diagnosis and the early administration of intravenous mannitol. The early identification of the neurological features in sentinel patients has the potential to reduce the number of secondary cases in cluster outbreaks.  (+info)

Total synthesis of ciguatoxin CTX3C. (2/37)

More than 20,000 people suffer annually from ciguatera seafood poisoning in subtropical and tropical regions. The extremely low content of the causative neurotoxins, designated as ciguatoxins, in fish has hampered the isolation, detailed biological studies, and preparation of anti-ciguatoxin antibodies for detecting these toxins. The large (3 nanometers long) and complicated molecular structure of ciguatoxins has impeded chemists from completing their total synthesis. Our highly convergent strategic approach featuring the chemoselective ring-closing metathesis reaction as a key tactic has enabled the total synthesis of ciguatoxin CTX3C, which will provide a practical supply for further studies.  (+info)

Pacific ciguatoxin-1b effect over Na+ and K+ currents, inositol 1,4,5-triphosphate content and intracellular Ca2+ signals in cultured rat myotubes. (3/37)

1. The action of the main ciguatoxin involved in ciguatera fish poisoning in the Pacific region (P-CTX-1b) was studied in myotubes originated from rat skeletal muscle cells kept in primary culture. 2. The effect of P-CTX-1b on sodium currents at short times of exposure (up to 1 min) showed a moderate increase in peak Na+ current. During prolonged exposures, P-CTX-1b decreased the peak Na+ current. This action was always accompanied by an increase of leakage currents, tail currents and outward Na+ currents, resulting in an intracellular Na+ accumulation. This effect is blocked by prior exposure to tetrodotoxin (TTX) and becomes evident only after washout of TTX. 3. Low to moderate concentrations of P-CTX-1b (2-5 nM) partially blocked potassium currents in a manner that was dependent on the membrane potential. 4. P-CTX-1b (2-12 nM) caused a small membrane depolarization (3-5 mV) and an increase in the frequency of spontaneous action potential discharges that reached in general low frequencies (0.1-0.5 Hz). 5. P-CTX-1b (10 nM) caused a transient increase of intracellular inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP(3)) mass levels, which was blocked by TTX. 6. In the presence of P-CTX-1b (10 nM) and in the absence of external Ca2+, the intracellular Ca2+ levels show a transient increase in the cytoplasm as well as in the nuclei. The time course of this effect may reflect the action of IP(3) over internal stores activated by P-CTX-1b-induced membrane depolarization.  (+info)

A quantitative and comparative study of the effects of a synthetic ciguatoxin CTX3C on the kinetic properties of voltage-dependent sodium channels. (4/37)

Ciguatoxins (CTXs) are known to bind to receptor site 5 of the voltage-dependent Na channel, but the toxin's physiological effects are poorly understood. In this study, we investigated the effects of a ciguatoxin congener (CTX3C) on three different Na-channel isoforms, rNa(v)1.2, rNa(v)1.4, and rNa(v)1.5, which were transiently expressed in HEK293 cells. The toxin (1.0 micromol l(-1)) shifted the activation potential (V(1/2) of activation curve) in the negative direction by 4-9 mV and increased the slope factor (k) from 8 mV to between 9 and 12 mV (indicative of decreased steepness of the activation curve), thereby resulting in a hyperpolarizing shift of the threshold potential by 30 mV for all Na channel isoforms. The toxin (1.0 micromol l(-1)) significantly accelerated the time-to-peak current from 0.62 to 0.52 ms in isoform rNa(v)1.2. Higher doses of the toxin (3-10 micromol l(-1)) additionally decreased time-to-peak current in rNa(v)1.4 and rNa(v)1.5. A toxin effect on decay of I(Na) at -20 mV was either absent or marginal even at relatively high doses of CTX3C. The toxin (1 micromol l(-1)) shifted the inactivation potential (V(1/2) of inactivation curve) in the negative direction by 15-18 mV in all isoforms. I(Na) maxima of the I-V curve (at -20 mV) were suppressed by application of 1.0 micromol l(-1) CTX3C to a similar extent (80-85% of the control) in all the three isoforms. Higher doses of CTX3C up to 10 micromol l(-1) further suppressed I(Na) to 61-72% of the control. Recovery from slow inactivation induced by a depolarizing prepulse of intermediate duration (500 ms) was dramatically delayed in the presence of 1.0 micromol l(-1) CTX3C, as time constants describing the monoexponential recovery were increased from 38+/-8 to 588+/-151 ms (n=5), 53+/-6 to 338+/-85 ms (n=4), and 23+/-3 to 232+/-117 ms (n=3) in rNa(v)1.2, rNa(v)1.4, and rNa(v)1.5, respectively. CTX3C exerted multimodal effects on sodium channels, with simultaneous stimulatory and inhibitory aspects, probably due to the large molecular size (3 nm in length) and lipophilicity of this membrane-spanning toxin.  (+info)

First- and second-generation total synthesis of ciguatoxin CTX3C. (5/37)

More than 20,000 people suffer annually from ciguatera seafood poisoning in subtropical and tropical regions. The extremely low content of the causative neurotoxins, designated as ciguatoxins, in fish has hampered isolation, detailed biological studies, and preparation of anti-ciguatoxin antibodies for detecting these toxins. Furthermore, the large (3 nm in length) and complex molecular structure of ciguatoxins has impeded chemists from completing their total synthesis. In this article, the full details of studies leading to the total synthesis of ciguatoxin CTX3C are provided. The key elements of the first-generation approach include O,O-acetal formation from the right and left wing fragments, conversion from O,O-acetal to O,S-acetal, a radical reaction to cyclize the G ring, a ring-closing metathesis reaction to close the F ring, and final removal of the 2-naphtylmethyl protective groups. Subsequent studies provided a second-generation total synthesis, which is more concise and results in a higher yield. Second-generation synthesis was accomplished by using a direct method of constructing the key intermediate O,S-acetal from alpha-chlorosulfide and a secondary alcohol. These syntheses ensure a practical supply of ciguatoxin for biological applications.  (+info)

Inhibition of voltage-gated potassium currents by gambierol in mouse taste cells. (6/37)

Ciguatera is a food poisoning caused by toxins of Gambierdiscus toxicus, a marine dinoflagellate. The neurological features of this intoxication include sensory abnormalities, such as paraesthesia, heightened nociperception, and also taste alterations. Here, we have evaluated the effect of gambierol, one of the possible ciguatera toxins, on the voltage-gated ion currents in taste cells. Taste cells are excitable cells endowed with voltage-gated Na+, K+, and Cl- currents (I(Na), I(K), and I(Cl), respectively). By applying the patch-clamp technique to single cells in isolated taste buds obtained from the mouse vallate papilla, we have recorded such currents and determined the effect of bath-applied gambierol. We found that this toxin markedly inhibited I(K) in the nanomolar range (IC50 of 1.8 nM), whereas it showed no significant effect on I(Na) or I(Cl) even at high concentration (1 microM). The block of I(K) was irreversible even after a 50-min wash. In addition to affecting the current amplitude, we found that gambierol significantly altered both the activation and inactivation processes of I(K). In conclusion, unlike other toxins involved in ciguatera, such as ciguatoxins, which affect the functioning of voltage-gated sodium channels, the preferred molecular target of gambierol is the voltage-gated potassium channel, at least in taste cells. Voltage-gated potassium currents play an important role in the generation of the firing pattern during chemotransduction. Thus, gambierol may alter action potential discharge in taste cells and this could be associated with the taste alterations reported in the clinical literature.  (+info)

Short report: persistent bradycardia caused by ciguatoxin poisoning after barracuda fish eggs ingestion in southern Taiwan. (7/37)

We report an outbreak of ciguatoxin poisoning after barracuda fish ingestion in southern Taiwan. Three members of a family developed nausea, vomiting, watery diarrhea, and myalgias about 1 hour after eating three to ten eggs of a barracuda fish. Numbness of the lips and extremities followed the gastrointestinal symptoms about 2 hours after ingestion. Other manifestations included hyperthermia, hypotension, bradycardia, and hyperreflexia. Bradycardia persisted for several days, and one patient required a continuous infusion of intravenous atropine totaling 40 mg over 2 days. Further follow-up of the patients disclosed improvement of neurologic sequelae and bradycardia, but sensory abnormalities resolved several months later. In conclusion, ciguatoxin poisoning causes mainly gastrointestinal and neurologic effects of variable severity. In two patients with ciguatoxin poisoning after barracuda fish egg ingestion, persistent bradycardia required prolonged atropine infusion.  (+info)

Uptake, tissue distribution, and excretion of brevetoxin-3 administered to mice by intratracheal instillation. (8/37)

Brevetoxins are a family of potent lipid-soluble neurotoxins produced by the dinoflagellate Karenia brevis, the organism responsible for Florida red tide. Brevetoxins aerosolized by surf and wind produce irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat in people on or near red tide-affected beaches. The effects of chronic exposures to brevetoxins on healthy and health-compromised individuals are not known. The purpose of this study was to investigate the pulmonary uptake, tissue distribution, and excretion of polyether brevetoxin-3 in mice, a rodent model for investigating the potential systemic adverse health effects associated with repeated brevetoxin inhalation. Male CBA/CaJ mice were administered [3H]brevetoxin-3 by intratracheal instillation. Groups of 3 mice were sacrificed immediately after instillation and at 0.5, 3, 6, 12, 24, 48, and 96 h postinstillation. Four additional mice were placed into metabolism cages for excreta collection up to 168 h postinstillation. Brevetoxin-3 distributed rapidly to all tissues, with the highest initial doses in the liver and gastrointestinal tract. Elimination half-times ranged from approximately 28 h for fat, heart, intestines, kidneys, liver, and muscle to approximately 90 h for brain and testes. The total dose to tissue ranged from 39 ng brevetoxin equivalents-h/g for testes to 406 ng brevetoxin equivalents-h/g for liver. Approximately 90% of excretion had occurred within 96 h, with 11 and 64% of the initial brevetoxin dose excreted in urine and feces, respectively. These results are consistent with earlier reports of rapid absorption and widespread tissue distribution of brevetoxins in rats.  (+info)

AU - Johnson, H. W.B.. AU - Baden, D. G.. AU - Murray, Thomas F.. PY - 2007/10/1. Y1 - 2007/10/1. N2 - The marine toxin gambierol, a polyether ladder toxin derived from the marine dinoflagellate Gambierdiscus toxicus, was evaluated for interaction with voltage-gated sodium channels (VGSCs) in cerebellar granule neuron (CGN) cultures. At concentrations ranging from 10 nM to 10 μM, gambierol alone had no effect on the intracellular Ca2+ concentration [Ca 2+]i of exposed CGN cultures. Furthermore, there was no evidence of neurotoxicity in CGN cultures exposed for 2 h to gambierol (1 nM-10 μM). However, gambierol was a potent inhibitor (IC50 = 189 nM) of the elevation of [Ca2+]i that accompanies exposure of CGN cultures to the VGSC activator brevetoxin-2 (PbTx-2).

0009] Due to the importance of both tau and β-amyloid in neurodegenerative processes, studies were initially conducted on each of the proteins independently and on the separate involvement of each one in Alzheimers disease. As a consequence, the first approaches to the treatment of Alzheimers were aimed at improving the effects produced by each of these proteins independently. Currently, due to the involvement of both proteins in Alzheimers, the interactions or relations between them are being studied. These studies demonstrate the existence of a relationship between both proteins, although the mechanism thereof is as yet not well-defined. Some data show that the formation of amyloid deposits may affect different molecular pathways which may facilitate the phosphorylation of tau and, consequently, the subsequent aggregation thereof (Blurton-Jones et al. 2006, Current Alzheimer Research, 3(5), 435-448). This takes place, for example, by the activation, on the part of the β-amyloid deposits, ...

Ciguatera is a toxin that is found in large reef fish such as the barracuda, red snapper, grouper and more. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and may be a true emergency
Editorial Note: Ciguatera poisoning occurs throughout the Caribbean and tropical Pacific regions, where outbreaks have been reported among both residents and tourists. From 1983 through 1992 in the United States, 129 outbreaks of ciguatera poisoning involving 508 persons were reported to CDC; no ciguatera-related deaths were reported (1,2). Most outbreaks were reported from Hawaii (111) and Florida (10), although outbreaks and sporadic cases in California (two), Vermont (one), New York (one), and Illinois (one) also have been associated with consumption of fish imported from tropical waters (3,4). The outbreak described in this report was recognized in an area not typically associated with ciguatera intoxication and underscores that ciguatera poisoning can occur among travelers returning from areas where ciguatera is endemic or among persons consuming fish imported from those areas. Ciguatera toxins are produced by dinoflagellates, which herbivorous fish consume. These fish are then eaten by ...
Apart from the gastrointestinal torment, which mostly fades away after a day or so, one of the most striking and disturbing symptoms of ciguatera is a form of oversensitivity to cold, termed as cold allodynia (Isbister and Kiernan, 2005). For instance, ciguatera sufferers have reported that a refreshing dive in the ocean actually caused burning pain, or that drinking cool beer felt like too hot coffee. The mechanisms whereby ciguatoxins provoke this peculiar form of altered temperature sensitivity, which can last for weeks to years, were fully unknown.. In their paper, Vetter et al (2012) provide the first insights into the molecular mechanisms underlying cold allodynia induced by P‐CTX‐1, the most potent ciguatoxin present in the Pacific Ocean. First, they demonstrate that ciguatoxin‐induced cold allodynia can be reproduced in a mouse model: following injection of minute quantities of P‐CTX‐1 into the sole of the paw, these mice exhibited clear signs of pain at moderately cool ambient ...
Ciguatera poisoning is food poisoning caused by the toxin ciguatera found in a variety of large reef fish. Symptoms of ciguatera poisoning include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dizziness, muscle pain, and vertigo.
ABSTRACT. Reliability of the commercially available Cigua-Check® test kits to identify ciguateric fish was evaluated by assessing the uniformity of conclusions by multiple readers examining identical sticks. One hundred and eighty-eight samples of two types of reef fish were tested for ciguatera using Cigua-Check® test strips. Paired subsamples of all specimens were also analyzed via the more rigorous N2a neuroblastoma mouse bioassay that is specific for aberration of Na+-channel activity that is presumptive for ciguatera fish poisoning. In a double blind trial, four individuals visually examined identical Cigua-Check® strips to conclude whether the samples were positive or negative for ciguatera. Of the 121 samples that were shown to be positively ciguatoxic via bioassay, the four strip readers were in agreement in concluding positive ciguateric status in 9.9% of the samples; these four readers concluded these positive samples were negative for ciguatera in 26.2% of these bioassay-positive ...
Hi Freddd - Actually.. when poisoned via ciguatera. It is best to stay away from any and all fish. Even the smallest amount of ciguatoxin can trigger a flare up. With possibly worsening effects. This is something you dont want to happen. Some even say that nuts, chocolate,caffeine and alcohol can trigger a reaction to it. I have had nuts, chocolate and my morning ritual of my coffee with caffeine and have not had a flare up. I did wait six months however before having the nuts. I am going to attempt some red wine this weekend. I am hoping not to have a flare up with this. As I had mentioned my b-12 levels are within normal limits as per my blood work which is great and I had been getting weekly shots of cyn-b-12 Once a month with c-complex and cyn-b-12. However I would like to know who I would have to contact to try this other b-12 as I know also I havent had any noticable response from these shots. Also, if poisoned with Ciguatera fish oil is out of the question also. These things are a must ...
Reef or Madness from ilum - Julie Hollenbeck on Vimeo.. A 16 minute film about Ciguatera Fish Poisoning created By Julie Hollenbeck, Mark Newbill and Ray Trujillo, Jr.. Ciguatera, the most reported "seafood toxin illness in the world" that a majority of the planet has never heard of, infects hundreds of thousands of people a year, some of whose very will to live is tested by the devastating and debilitating chronic neurological affects of the fish-borne toxin.. "Reef or Madness" a short documentary film by University of Miami Marine Affairs and Policy students Julie Hollenbeck and Mark Newbill, that recounts the struggle of chronic Ciguatera sufferers who seek to regain some semblance of their healthy and productive lives following Ciguatera infection and the incapacitating symptoms that can last for years. While Ciguatera is a recognized medical illness, many marine toxin specialists have yet to agree on how long people may suffer with the symptoms of the fish poison, leaving long-term chronic ...
Brown marbled grouper (Epinephelus fuscoguttatus) is an apex predator from coral reefs of the Indo-Pacific region. All five published case series of ciguatera after consumption of brown marbled grouper were reviewed to characterize the types, severity and chronicity of ciguatera symptoms associated with its consumption. Three of these case series were from large outbreaks affecting over 100-200 subjects who had eaten this reef fish served at banquets. Affected subjects generally developed a combination of gastrointestinal, neurological and, less commonly, cardiovascular symptoms. Gastrointestinal symptoms occurred early and generally subsided in 1-2 days. Some neurological symptoms (e.g., paresthesia of four limbs) could last for weeks or months. Sinus bradycardia and hypotension occurred early, but could be severe and prolonged, necessitating the timely use of intravenous fluids, atropine and dopamine. Other cardiovascular and neurological features included atrial ectopics, ventricular ectopics,

The fine folks at both HotHardware and PC Perspective have run the new ASUS P7P55D-E Premium motherboard through its paces, which has the particular distinction of handling both USB 3.0 and the up-and-coming SATA 6G through controllers by NEC and Marvell, respectively. Lucky for us, both sites tests came to similar conclusions. The Seagate Barracuda XT SATA 6G drive has almost zero improvement over SATA 3G, other than in some burst speeds due to the fancy cache on the 6G -- the bottleneck here is the drive, not the controller. Meanwhile, USB 3.0 has speeds that are roughly 5 to 6 times faster than USB 2.0 with the same drive, a huge win for fans of external storage the world over. Perhaps even better news is that an ASUS US36 controller card with USB 3.0 and SATA 6G support is a mere $30, so this stuff is already basically within reach to the average desktop user.

CFP is associated with gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, neurologic, and neuropsychiatric symptoms and signs. The meal containing ciguatoxins is generally unremarkable in taste and smell. Symptoms may develop within minutes of ingestion, although they generally occur within 2 to 6 hours after the meal. Almost all victims develop symptoms by 24 hours. The severity of symptoms seems to follow a dose-dependent pattern, with victims who eat larger portions of ciguatoxic fish experiencing more severe symptoms. Additionally, there are variable concentrations of ciguatoxin within a fish, depending on the fish size, age and part consumed, with higher concentrations in the viscera, especially the liver, spleen, gonads, and roe.. The most common initial symptoms reported in cases of ciguatera include acute gastroenteritis, with abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. These symptoms rarely persist for longer than 24 hours but may require fluid resuscitation. Headache is a common symptom, and ...
Each year in the United States, ∼260,000 people get sick from contaminated fish. Fish is also the most commonly implicated food category in outbreaks. We reviewed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Foodborne Disease Outbreak Surveillance System for outbreaks resulting from consumption of fish during the period 1998-2015. We found 857 outbreaks associated with fish, resulting in 4815 illnesses, 359 hospitalizations, and 4 deaths. The median number of illnesses per outbreak was three (range: 2-425). The annual number of fish-associated outbreaks declined from an average of 62 per year during the period 1998-2006 to 34 per year during the period 2007-2015. Hawaii (221 outbreaks [26%]) and Florida (203 [24%]) reported the most outbreaks. Among 637 outbreaks (74%) with a confirmed etiology, scombrotoxin (349 [55%]) and ciguatoxin (227 [36%]) were by far most common. Most outbreak-associated illnesses were caused by scombrotoxin (1299 [34%]), Salmonella (978 [26%]), and ciguatoxin (894 ...
At certain times of the year, various species of fish and shellfish contain poisonous biotoxins, even if well cooked. According to the CDC, it is considered an under-recognized risk for travelers, specifically in the tropics and subtropics. Certain fish-groupers, barracudas, moray eel, sturgeon, sea bass, red snapper, amberjack, mackerel, parrot fish, surgeonfish, and triggerfish-can cause ciguatera fish poisoning. The CDC recommends never eating moray eel or barracuda. Other types of fish that may contain the toxin at unpredictable times include sea bass and a wide range of tropical reef and warm-water fish. Fish containing these toxins do not look, smell, or taste bad. Cooking, marinating, freezing, or stewing does not destroy the toxin. The risk of ciguatera poisoning exists in all tropical and subtropical waters of the West Indies, the Pacific Ocean, and the Indian Ocean, where these reef fish are eaten. Two other forms of poisoning can happen from naturally occurring toxins in fish: ...

Rathayibacter toxicus is a Gram-positive bacterium that is the causative agent of annual ryegrass toxicity (ARGT), a disease that causes devastating losses in the Australian livestock industry. R. toxicus exhibits a complex life cycle, using the nematode Anguina funesta as a physical vector to carry it up to the seed head of the host plant. ARGT is caused by a tunicamycin-like corynetoxin that is produced in R. toxicus-infected seed galls. We analyzed protein expression in R. toxicus under stationary growth phase conditions to obtain a more complete understanding of the biology of this organism and identify potential targets for immunoassay development ...

Before we go one step further, I want to point out that its important to get your reactivity under control in order to bring down inflammation before ramping up liver detoxification. Removing foods, chemicals, biotoxin exposures, and other stressors, can help a lot to dampen down the immune response. Its important to do this first. We dont want to start moving toxins when the body is already on high alert. It could make matters worse. OK, with that precaution out of the way, lets begin with the understanding that the basic function of the liver and kidneys is to filter blood. Theyre responsible for removing a wide range of toxins from the body. In terms of the three Phases of liver detoxification, these include metabolic end products, micro organisms, pollutants, insecticides, pesticides, food additives, drugs, alcohol, hormones, some vitamins, steroids, and so on. Furthermore, the toxins the liver removes are sequestered in bile that then is dumped into the small intestines whenever you ...

These are not the first 12TB drives in the market, as enterprise versions from both Seagate and Western Digital have been around for some time. However, Seagate is the first vendor to bring down the prices and ship 12TB drives in the consumer market.. From a hardware viewpoint, the three drives are similar to the Seagate Enterprise Capacity v7 drives launched in March 2017. All of them features eight PMR platters with a 923 Gb/in2 areal density in a sealed enclosure filled with helium. That said, the Barracuda Pro Compute, meant for desktop use, doesnt come with rotational vibration (RV) sensors or dual-plane motor balancing hardware. The RV sensors and the dual-plane balance / AgileArray features enable reliable performance in multi-drive enclosures. The other important differentiation aspects include firmware features, warranty / workload ratings, and value-added services like the Seagate Rescue Data Recovery..

A particle detection system to identify and classify particles is programmed to capture digitized images of the particle generated by directing a light source through a fluid that includes the particle. The particle scatters the light and the scattered light is detected using a detector. The detector creates a digital signal corresponding to the particle, which is used by the system to generate a Bio-Optical Signature. This Bio-Optical Signature can then be used to classify the event, or particle. A count rate of the classified particles is monitored to detect a change that is representative of a toxin attack.

Brevetoxin B (Brevetoxin-2; PbTx-2) is a polyketide neurotoxin produced by Karenia species and other dinoflagellates. Brevetoxin B binds to site 5 on the alpha subunit of voltage-gated sodium channels (IC50=15 nM) on neurons at the neuromuscular junction, causing the channel to open irreversibly at potentials more negative than normal, discharging action potentials repetitively. Brevetoxin B is ichthyotoxic at nanomolar concentrations and is responsible for an illness described as neurotoxic shellfish poisoning. - Mechanism of Action & Protocol.

Habitat bias Differences between marine and freshwater species Most dinoflagellate species inhabit marine waters and only 17% of the described species are found in freshwater environments. The freshwater dinoflagellates are highly dominated by plastid-containing species (88%), while in marine environments there is a slight dominance of heterotrophic species (58%) (Gómez 2012b). Consequently, it is easier to establish cultures and to obtain sequences of freshwater species. Overall, the freshwater habitats are usually more accessible and require fewer infrastructures for sampling when compared to open ocean areas. For these reasons, we can expect a higher representation of the freshwater species in the nucleotide databases. However, the percentage of sequenced freshwater species (13%) was lower than for the marine species (22%, Table 1). In part, the marine species are favored by interest in the marine harmful algal blooms (Alexandrium, Dinophysis, Gambierdiscus, etc.). However, the low ...

Pain is a major medical and socio-economic issue affecting one in five Australians. Our research aims to understand the molecular mechanisms behind pain. The current focus of the lab is to use toxins from plants and venomous animals to understand the molecular pharmacology of pain. These toxins are highly selective for ion channels and receptors found in the sensory neurons that detect pain and can potentially be developed into novel analgesics. Our research also investigates the mechanisms contributing to chemotherapy-induced pain, cancer-associated pain, inflammatory and neuropathic pain, and the painful marine toxin disease known as ciguatera. To investigate the neuropharmacology of pain we use a range of techniques including: in vivo pain pathway characterisation, high-content imaging of cultured sensory neurons, high-throughput screening using calcium and membrane potential assays, and traditional pharmacological assays. While all pain has similar symptoms, it is becoming clear that the ...

We reach Cabrera on the 15th in the afternoon in order to continue sampling the eastern part of the National Park. Ten minutes after the robot was in the water, we saw some fog beginning to form on the camera lens, which is bad news; water was somehow getting inside. We decide to suspend the dive and lift the ROV out of the water. There must be a broken seal or connection.. To save time, the divers submerge themselves in the small island of Na Foradada while we check the robot. We dont see many fish here, only a group of barracudas (Sphyrna viridensis), but we do spot a wall covered with sponges and corals, such as Leptosamnia pruvoti, Caryophyllia inormata, etc.. The results of the analysis of the robots camera indicate that we cannot continue; we need a new camera. While we obtain it, were going to try to place the rear camera in the front. We dont know if this is going to work. So, we set sail towards the port of Cabrera and begin with the changes.. At night, the divers, especially Juan ...
A merganser bill, on the other hand, may be 4x as long as wide. But more than that, the structure of the bill has changed dramatically. Duck bills have plates or lamellae, fine transverse ridges on the cutting edges that let water escape from the bill when prey is brought to the surface. In mergansers, these plates have been modified to produce a saw-toothed effect. These arent true teeth, lacking in birds, but they are very toothlike, analogous to the teeth of barracudas, needlefish and dolphins, other fish-catching vertebrates ...

Cell-based biosensors (CBBs) utilize the principles of cell-based assays (CBAs) by employing living cells for detection of different analytes from environment, food, clinical, or other sources. For toxin detection, CBBs are emerging as unique alternatives to other analytical methods. The main advantage of using CBBs for probing biotoxins and toxic agents is that CBBs respond to the toxic exposures in the manner related to actual physiologic responses of the vulnerable subjects. The results obtained from CBBs are based on the toxin-cell interactions, and therefore, reveal functional information (such as mode of action, toxic potency, bioavailability, target tissue or organ, etc.) about the toxin. CBBs incorporate both prokaryotic (bacteria) and eukaryotic (yeast, invertebrate and vertebrate) cells. To create CBB devices, living cells are directly integrated onto the biosensor platform. The sensors report the cellular responses upon exposures to toxins and the resulting cellular signals are transduced by

TY - JOUR. T1 - Induction of oxidative DNA damage by the marine toxin okadaic acid depends on human cell type. AU - Valdiglesias, Vanessa. AU - Laffon, Blanca. AU - Pásaro, Eduardo. AU - Cemeli, Eduardo. AU - Anderson, Diana. AU - Méndez, Josefina. PY - 2011/5. Y1 - 2011/5. N2 - The marine toxin okadaic acid (OA) is the main representative of diarrhoeic shellfish poisoning (DSP) toxins. Its ingestion induces nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and abdominal ache. It has also been found to trigger cellular and molecular effects at low concentrations. Its mechanism of action has not been described yet. Results of a previous study showed that OA can induce cytotoxic and genotoxic effects, both directly and indirectly, and modulations in DNA repair processes in three different types of human cells (leukocytes, SHSY5Y neuroblastoma and HepG2 cells). These effects varied depending on the type of cell and the concentration employed (Valdiglesias et al., 2010). On that basis, the ability of OA to induce ...
There have been reports of ciguatera poisoning and high mercury levels in recent years traced to fish from Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (FGBNMS). In February 2008, the FDA issued an advisory recommending that primary processors avoid purchasing hogfish, grouper, and snapper species captured within 10 miles of the sanctuary, and amberjack, barracuda and other pelagic species captured within 50 miles of the sanctuary. This advisory was reissued in November 2013.
The 7 minute clip includes assorted segments of Heart playing their songs "Barracuda", "Heartless", and "What About Love", before concluding with clips of them covering Led Zeppelin songs like "The Battle of Evermore" and "Four Sticks". Very nice footage, and you can see how well Ann Wilsons voice has held up over the years on their classic songs, plus the Led Zeppelin material! I did notice "Barracuda" was slowed down a bit, but other than that, alls well if youre a Heart fan! Lastly for SooToday-related Heart fallout, editorial writer Mac Headrick reviewed the show as part of a new opinion piece named "Its Only Rock and Roll" that went up on the site on Sunday. Mac said that he liked the show, but he was more inclined to attend based on the Led Zeppelin tribute aspect of it, which he tied into a comparison of major concerts today in relation to the late 1960s & early 1970s, specifically Led Zeppelins 1971 Toronto show and the Heart gig this past Friday, both of which he attended.

Is that some kind of riddle? Mr. Lethem, why do you insist on being so meandering and elusive? All were trying to do here is conduct a straightforward interview to try to interest people in your FBI-hating work, and you persist in making it difficult. Why is that, Lethem?. Lethem:. Dear Janet McSweeno,. I want to tell you a little story, as you stand there glowering at the my authorial barricades with your barracudas or bazookas or whatever theyre called full of nerve gas and inflammatory interviewing devices. And while I tell you this little story I want you to remember the children who stand in here with me, all the humble innocent little children Ive created in my various books, children who never did anything to deserve the pain youre about to inflict on them, whose only crime was that they dared to exist.. The story happened to me today: I was walking down Bergen Street I saw a tiny little old woman, a brown woman, perhaps Domican or Puerto Rican. She pushed a shopping cart ahead of her ...

By January 1979, French support for Bokassa had eroded after riots in Bangui led to a massacre of civilians.[2] Between 17 and 19 April, a number of high school students were arrested after they had protested against wearing the expensive, government-required school uniforms; an estimated 100 were killed.[3][4] Emperor Bokassa personally participated in the massacre, where he was even reported beating some of the children to death with his own cane. The massive press coverage which followed the deaths of the students opened the way for a successful coup which saw French troops in Operation Barracuda restore former president David Dacko to power while Bokassa was away in Libya meeting with Gaddafi on 20 September 1979. Bokassas overthrow by the French government was called "Frances last colonial expedition" by veteran French diplomat Jacques Foccart. François Mitterrand refused to have France intervene in this manner again.[5] Operation Barracuda began the night of 20 September and ended early ...

Foodborne agents cause an estimated 76 million illnesses annually in the United States (1). Outbreak surveillance provides insights into the causes of foodborne illness, types of implicated foods, and settings of foodborne infections that can be used in food safety strategies to prevent and control foodborne disease. CDC collects data on foodborne disease outbreaks submitted from all states and territories. This report summarizes epidemiologic data for the 1,097 reported outbreaks occurring during 2007 (the most recent finalized data), which resulted in 21,244 cases of foodborne illness and 18 deaths. Among the 497 foodborne outbreaks with a laboratory-confirmed single etiologic agent reported, norovirus was the most common cause, followed by Salmonella. Among the 18 reported deaths, 11 were attributed to bacterial etiologies (five Salmonella, three Listeria monocytogenes, two Escherichia coli O157:H7, and one Clostridium botulinum), two to viral etiologies (norovirus), and one to a chemical ...

Foodborne illnesses are a major health burden in the United States (1). Most of these illnesses are preventable, and analysis of outbreaks helps identify control measures. Although most cases are sporadic, investigation of the portion that occur as part of recognized outbreaks can provide insights into the pathogens, food vehicles, and food-handling practices associated with foodborne infections. CDC collects data on foodborne disease outbreaks (FBDOs) from all states and territories through the Foodborne Disease Outbreak Surveillance System (FBDSS). This report summarizes epidemiologic data on FBDOs reported during 2006 (the most recent year for which data have been analyzed). A total of 1,270 FBDOs were reported, resulting in 27,634 cases and 11 deaths. Among the 624 FBDOs with a confirmed etiology, norovirus was the most common cause, accounting for 54% of outbreaks and 11,879 cases, followed by Salmonella (18% of outbreaks and 3,252 cases). Among the 11 reported deaths, 10 were attributed to ...
