Nucleic acid sequence-based amplification (NASBA) is an isothermal method of RNA amplification that has been previously used in clinical diagnostic testing. A real-time NASBA assay has been developed for the detection of rbcL mRNA from the red tide dinoflagellate Karenia brevis. This assay is sensitive to one K. brevis cell and fg of in vitro transcript, with occasional detection of lower. Introduction. Land runoff and the input of terrestrially-derived dissolved organic matter (DOM; otherwise known as `humic substances') have been implicated as important factors in the initiation of coastal dinoflagellate blooms (e.g. Gymnodinium breve, Florida; Alexandrium tamarense, Maine, and St. Lawrence Estuary, Canada), and as a general stimulant for marine phytoplankton production since.

Taylor, and H.H. Seliger (eds.). Five major human toxic syndromes caused by the consumption of shellfish contaminated by algal toxins are presented. The increased risks to humans of shellfish toxicity from the prevalence of harmful algal blooms (HABs) may be a consequence of large-scale ecological changes from anthropogenic activities, especially increased eutrophication, marine transport and aquaculture, and global climate.

Gymnodinium breve red tide blooms: Initiation, transport, and consequences of surface circulation November Limnology and Oceanography 42(5_part_2) Neurotoxic shellfish poisoning (NSP) is the clinical symptom usually associated with red tides off the coasts of Florida due to intoxication from Karenia brevis (aka Ptychodiscus brevis, Gymnodinium breve).
For example, the unarmored dinoflagellate Gymnodinium breve is responsible for blooms that cause shellfish poisoning, fish kills, and human illness. The raphidophyte Heterosigma akashiwo likewise causes potentially dangerous red tides.
The classic causative organism, Gymnodinium breve, is a dinoflagellate restricted to the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, although similar species occur throughout the world.
It is found especially during red tides in the late summer and autumn months almost every year off the West Coast of Florida with massive fish and bird kills. S.M. Warlen, P.A. Tester, D.R.

The oldest known toxic algal species in North America is a dinoflagellate that causes neurotoxic shellfish poisoning (NSP). After people eat contaminated shellfish, they can suffer numbness and tingling, cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, chills and sweats. Species Overview: Gymnodinium breve is an unarmoured, marine, planktonic dinoflagellate species.
It is a toxin-producing species associated with red tides in the Gulf of Mexico, off the coast of western Florida. Taxonomic Description: Gymnodinium breve is an athecate species; i.e. without thecal plates. Cells are small and dorso-ventrally. The prevalence of toxic red tide events in the state of Florida, stemming from the dinoflagellate Karenia brevis, has received considerable attention over the past several decades .While large and persistent blooms of are known to occur on an annual basis on Florida's Gulf Coast, data suggest that red tides are increasing both.
Fish and invertebrate kills were reported from September to October in the Indian River, Florida, coincident with blooms of the dinoflagellate Gymnodinium pulchellum Larsen The most frequent biotic causes of mass-mortality events include toxicity, due to toxic algal blooms [1, 2], the appearance of diseases [3,4], or mortality following spawning events.
Among the. Interactions between bacteria and species of harmful and/or toxic algae are potentially important factors affecting both the population dynamics and the toxicity of these algae. Recent reports of b. 1 Chapter One Introduction The dinoflagellate, Karenia brevis (formally Gymnodinium breve Davis) (Daugbjerg et al., ) is responsible for one of the oldest reported harmful algal blooms in North America (Ingersoll, ), yet shellfish poisonings in the Gulf of Mexico from this algal species were considered rare and infrequent as late as forty years ago.
Harmful algal blooms of the toxic dinoflagellate Gymnodinium breve have caused massive fish kills in the Gulf of Mexico since the s, with most occurrences on the west coast of Florida. Inthe list of states that have experienced natural resource, public health, and.
3. Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) PSP is a worldwide marine toxin disease with both neurologic and gastrointestinal symptoms, which is caused by the consumption of shellfish contaminated by toxic dinoflagellates .The first PSP event was reported in near San Francisco, USA, and was caused by a dinoflagellate, A.
catenella, which resulted in people being ill and six deaths . Although the toxic dinoflagellate Gymnodinium breve is found throughout the Gulf of Mexico in background concentrations (Florida (28°N, 82°50′W to 26°30′N, 82°15′W) has. Florida red tides are annual blooms of the marine dinoflagellate Karenia brevis in the Gulf of Mexico.
The organism produces a group of highly potent natural neurotoxins called brevetoxins. Brevetoxins cause massive fish kills, neurotoxic shellfish poisoning, and respiratory distress, particularly in.
Karenia brevis (Davis cf. Hansen & Moestrup = Gymnodinium breve) is an unarmored, non-peridinin-containing dinoflagellate that grows to ca. 20 to 40μ m in organism is positively phototactic (), is negatively geotactic (), swims at a speed of ca.
1 m h −1 and is thought to be an obligate photoautotroph ().K. brevis is the causative agent of the recurring red tide blooms (21 of. Evolution of a Gymnodinium breve (Gymnodiniales, Dinophyceae) red tide bloom on the west Florida shelf: relationships with physical factors.
Presented at the 9th International Conference on Harmful Algal Blooms, Hobart, Australia, FebruaryIn Florida, bloom appearances are associated with the unarmored dinoflagellate Gymnodinium breve (a.k.a. Ptychodiscus brevis) that are associated with marine mortalities (fish kills), mild cases of shellfish poisoning, and asthma-like symptoms associated with aerosols.
Such. NSP is caused by the ingestion of shellfish exposed to blooms of the dinoflagellate Kerenia brevis (formerly Gymnodinium breve) [33, 34]. This dinoflagellate species produces two types of lipid soluble toxins: hemolytic and neurotoxic [ 35 ], causing massive fish kills, bird deaths, and marine mammal mortalities [ 36, 37 ].
Neurotoxic shellfish poisoning, caused by toxins produced in Gymnodinium breve, is notorious for fish kills and shellfish poisoning along the coast of Florida in the United States.
When the red tide blooms are blown to shore, wind-sprayed toxic cells can cause health problems for humans and other animals that breathe the air. Unit III Red Tide and Harmful Algal Blooms Researchers at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Florida Marine Research Institute (FMRI) are on the edge of scientific discovery.
They are working to discover the mysteries of Gymnodinium breve (G. breve), the dinoflagellate responsible for Florida’s red tide. FLORIDA RED TIDES ARE CAUSED BY THE TOXIC DINOFLAGELLATE KARENIA BREVIS Left: Karenia brevis, the Florida red tide dinoflagellate.
Left: A fish kill caused by a K. brevis bloom. brevis is native to the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem,and reports suggesting bloom-related events (fish kills) date back to The. Infollowing an extensive Florida red tide, over West India manatees died as a result of toxin exposure (Bossart et al., ).
Other toxic species related to G. breve are known to cause fish kills, shore bird deaths, and shellfish toxicity in Japan, New Zealand, and possibly South Africa.
The Japanese and New Zealand species produce. Abstract. Harmful algal blooms (HABs) have increased globally in recent years. In Hong Kong, a record algal bloom, caused by Gymnodinium mikimotoi and Gyrodinium sp. HK’ 98 (subsequently described as Karenia digitata) occurred in March and April Almost all fishes died in the affected cages, and the estimated economic loss caused by the HAB was HK$ (equivalent to US $).

A harmful algal bloom (HAB) occurred along the southeast Arabian Sea, bordering Western India, during September to November This bloom was unique in the region in terms of its large spatial extent, and the trend was weakened towards November. Mass mortality of fish, emanation of noxious odour, and respiratory problems among the children on the coastal stretch were noticed.
For example, the toxic dinoflagellate, Gymnodinium breve, has been forming blooms in Florida waters for more than years, and it also once bloomed in North Carolina's coastal waters during (Landsberg and Steidinger ; Steidinger and others ).
The objectives of this research project are to use laboratory cultures, aquaria, and mesocosms to: (1) determine the removal efficiencies of selected clays on three harmful algal bloom (HAB) species found in U.S.
waters (the Florida red tide dinoflagellate Gymnodinium breve, the New York brown tide chrysophyte Aureococcus anophagefferens, and. 1. Introduction.
The planktonic marine dinoflagellate Karenia brevis blooms annually in the Gulf of Mexico and is most prevalent along the west coast of Florida. Historically, blooms have occurred primarily during the fall and winter months. However, over recent years the Florida red tide specifically and HABs (harmful algal blooms) in general appear to be more frequent, persistent and.Oda, inwas the first to name any species in what is now the genus Karenia:  Gymnodinium mikimotoi but was later renamed Karenia mikimotoi.
 Davis in was the first to document that the cause of the fish kills was the dinoflagellate Gymnodinium breve,  which was renamed Ptychodiscus brevis and since is now known as.INTRODUCTION. The harmful alga, Karenia brevis (formerly, Gymnodinium breve, Davis) (Duagbjerg et al., ) is responsible for the most prevalent harmful algal blooms (HABs) in the Gulf of Mexico as well as periodic blooms along the US Atlantic Coast (Tester and Steidinger, ; Landsberg, ).This dinoflagellate produces a suite of polyether neurotoxins called brevetoxins (designated as.
