Understanding differential paralytic shellfish toxin profiles between two Scytonema crispum strains

  Author: Alescia Cullen A major reason cyanobacterial blooms are of nuisance is due to their ability to produce toxic compounds. One class of these compounds are the Paralytic Shellfish Toxins (PSTs), which encompass saxitoxin and its related analogues. Despite the identification of the putative genetics underlying biosynthesis of saxitoxin in 2008, biochemical confirmation of […]
