Colorimetric DNA-based assay for the specific detection and quantification of Ostreopsis cf. ovata and Ostreopsis cf. siamensis in the marine environment
(Harmful Algae, 2019-03-16)
Ostreopsis is a toxic benthic dinoflagellate largely distributed worldwide in tropical and temperate areas. In the Mediterranean Sea, periodic summer blooms have been reported and have become a serious ...
Detection and quantification of the toxic marine microalgae Karlodinium veneficum and Karlodinium armiger using recombinase polymerase amplification and enzyme-linked oligonucleotide assay
(Analytica Chimica Acta, 2018-07-28)
Karlodinium is a dinoflagellate responsible for fish-killing events worldwide. In Alfacs Bay (NW Mediterranean Sea), the presence of two Karlodinium species (K. veneficum and K. armiger) with different ...
Electrochemical genosensor for the direct detection of tailed PCR amplicons incorporating ferrocene labelled dATP
(Biosensors and Bioelectronics, 2019-03-30)
An electrochemical genosensor for the detection and quantification of Karlodinium armiger is presented. The genosensor exploits tailed primers and ferrocene labelled dATP analogue to produce PCR products ...
Assessment of cytotoxicity in ten strains of Gambierdiscus australes from Macaronesian Islands by neuro-2a cell-based assays
(Journal of Applied Phycology, 2018-06-15)
Within the dinoflagellate genus Gambierdiscus several species are well-known producers of ciguatoxins (CTXs) and maitotoxins (MTXs). These compounds are potent marine toxins that accumulate through the ...
Dual quantitative PCR assay for identification and enumeration of Karlodinium veneficum and Karlodinium armiger combined with a simple and rapid DNA extraction method
(Journal of Applied Phycology, 2018-04-04)
Karlodinium is a dinoflagellate genus responsible for massive fish mortality events worldwide. It is commonly found in Alfacs Bay (NW Mediterranean Sea), where the presence of two Karlodinium species ...
First report of Gambierdiscus in the Western Mediterranean Sea (Balearic Islands)
(Harmful Algae News, 2018-02)
Gambierdiscus (Dinophyceae) species are benthic dinoflagellates living in marine littoral zones of circumtropical areas and have recently been described in temperate waters . Some species are producers ...
