Biocatalytic Detoxification of Paralytic Shellfish Toxins.

ACS Chem Biol 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

United States Food and Drug Administration , College Park , Maryland 20740 , United States.

Small molecules that bind to voltage-gated sodium channels (VGSCs) are promising leads in the treatment of numerous neurodegenerative diseases and pain. Nature is a highly skilled medicinal chemist in this regard, designing potent VGSC ligands capable of binding to and blocking the channel, thereby offering compounds of potential therapeutic interest. Paralytic shellfish toxins (PSTs), produced by cyanobacteria and marine dinoflagellates, are examples of these naturally occurring small molecule VGSC blockers that can potentially be leveraged to solve human health concerns.

Effects of oral domoic acid exposure on maternal reproduction and infant birth characteristics in a preclinical nonhuman primate model.

Neurotoxicol Teratol 2019 Mar - Apr;72:10-21. Epub 2019 Jan 5.

Department of Pharmaceutics, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA.

Domoic Acid (DA) is a naturally-occurring excitotoxin, produced by marine algae, which can bioaccumulate in shellfish and finfish. The consumption of seafood contaminated with DA is associated with gastrointestinal illness that, in the case of high DA exposure, can evolve into a spectrum of responses ranging from agitation to hallucinations, memory loss, seizures and coma. Because algal blooms that produce DA are becoming more widespread and very little is known about the dangers of chronic, low-dose exposure, we initiated a preclinical study focused on the reproductive and developmental effects of DA in a nonhuman primate model.

Monitoring programs are in place for testing shellfish on a regular basis. In some countries testing is performed using the so-called mouse bioassay, an assay that faces ethical concerns not only because of animal distress, but also because it lacks specificity and results in high amounts of false positives.

Cryptic diversity within the Scytonema complex: Characterization of the paralytic shellfish toxin producer Heterosyctonema crispum, and the establishment of the family Heteroscytonemataceae (Cyanobacteria/Nostocales).

Harmful Algae 2018 Dec 23;80:158-170. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Queensland Department of Environment and Science, GPO Box 5078 Brisbane Qld 4001, Australia.

Strains of the freshwater filamentous, benthic cyanobacterium Scytonema crispum Agardh isolated from six sites in subtropical south-east Queensland were characterised using a combination of phenotypic and genetic traits. Morphologically, the strains were consistent with the description of Scytonemataceae sensu stricto, and the description of Scytonema crispum. However, phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene, the 16S-23S rRNA operon, and the nifH gene revealed that these strains and three others from outside Australia formed a monophyletic clade distinct from Scytonema and other species in the Scytonemataceae.

Insights into the dynamics of harmful algal blooms in a tropical estuary through an integrated hydrodynamic-Pyrodinium-shellfish model.

Harmful Algae 2018 Dec 7;80:1-14. Epub 2018 Sep 7.

Marine Science Institute, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines.

In contrast to temperate Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs), knowledge on the mechanisms driving tropical HABs are less well studied. The interaction of a seasonal temperature window, cysts (for certain species) and large-scale transport are some of the key processes in temperate HABs. In the Philippines, HABs occur not along long open coastlines, but in embayments that are highly influenced by run-off and stratification. Read More

The Acute Toxicity of Tetrodotoxin and Tetrodotoxin⁻Saxitoxin Mixtures to Mice by Various Routes of Administration.

Toxins (Basel) 2018 Oct 23;10(11). Epub 2018 Oct 23.

Cawthron Institute, Private Bag 2, Nelson 7042, New Zealand.

Tetrodotoxin (TTX) is a potent neurotoxin associated with human poisonings through the consumption of pufferfish. More recently, TTX has been identified in bivalve molluscs from diverse geographical environments, including Europe, and is therefore recognised as an emerging threat to food safety. A recent scientific opinion of the EFSA Panel on Contaminants in the Food Chain recognised the need for further data on the acute oral toxicity of TTX and suggested that, since saxitoxin (STX) and TTX had similar modes of action, it was possible that their toxicities were additive so could perhaps be combined to yield one health-based guideline value.
