Toxicity of French Polynesian strains of Gambierdiscus toxicus in cultures.
Bull Soc Pathol Exot. 1992; 85(5 Pt 2):474-7.BS

Abstract

Seven clonal strains of Gambierdiscus toxicus isolated from three ciguateric areas around Tahiti island were mass cultured and extracted for ciguatoxins and maitotoxin. CTX analogs were detected only in one clone (GTP1), suggesting that CTX production may be strain-dependent. However, this in vitro production of CTXs, which remains fairly poor with regards to the toxicity levels encountered in wild G. toxicus, is not a stable temporal characteristic. On the other hand, maitotoxic compounds were detected in all 7 strains in copious amount, especially in clone GTH2.
