However, with the increases in seafood trade, increased worldwide seafood consumption and international tourism, the target populations have become international. [7], The most distinctive trait of this genus is the formation of multinucleated pseudocolonies that consist of an even number of zooids. The toxin is produced by dinoflagellates, such as Protogonyaulax sp., Pyrodinium sp., Gymnodinium catenatum, Alexandrium catenella, and Alexandrium minutum. Under starvation conditions the planozygote disassembled into two 2-zooid with one lacking nucleus, but further fate was not examined. It is one of the few naked dinoflagellates, or species lacking armor (cellulosic plates). Currently the following 10 species are accepted taxonomically: Gymnodinium pulchellum is an unarmoured, marine, planktonic dinoflagellate species. Gymnodinium catenatum is an unarmoured, marine, planktonic dinoflagellate species. [11] has demonstrated that P. lebouriae have peridinin-type plastids that were most likely acquired from ancestral polykrikoids. Polykrikos barnegatensis G.W.Martin, Each zooid has a pair of flagella (transverse and longitudinal flagella) and has its own transverse groove, cingulum, but zooid longitudinal furrows, sulci, are fused. Polykrikos herdmaniae Hoppenrath & Leander, Polykrikos grassei Lecal, [5][13] P. hartmanii feeds on algal species by engulfment after anchoring a prey using a nematocyst-taeniocyst complex (later referred to as NTC). 6.4.1 Gymnodinium (Mizozoa, Dinophyceae, Gymnodiniaceae) Gymnodinium species are found worldwide in the freshwater, brackish, marine plankton, and benthos habitats.

It is restricted to sites where bottom waters are moderately to well-ventilated. [3]Bildgalleri Some recent research [3] have shown that the work of two organelles is coupled, with the taeniocyst adhering to prey, followed by nematocyst discharge leading to prey puncturing and, lastly, retrieving the prey using a tow filament, located on the end of the nematocysts close to posterior vesicle. Observations of feeding behaviour suggest P. kofoidii initially displayed looping swimming behaviour in close proximity to its prey followed by discharge of a nematocyst, pull of the prey into the body through posterior sulcus and final engulfment of the prey. Neosaxitoxin (NSTX) is included, as other saxitoxin-analogs, in a broad group of natural neurotoxic alkaloids, commonly known as the paralytic shellfish toxins (PSTs).The parent compound of PSTs, saxitoxin (STX), is a tricyclic perhydropurine alkaloid, which can be substituted at various positions, leading to more than 30 naturally occurring STX analogues. The tubule, embedded within nematocyst, discharges towards the prey and hypothesized to be used for prey puncturing. Sommige soorten Gymnodinium vormen kettingachtige kolonies, zoals o.a. It is usually seen in long, swimming chains of tiny cells, with up to 32 cells in a chain (occasionally 64). The cyst stage persisted for 1 month, which is considered as a relatively short period in comparison to other dinoflagellates, which obligate dormancy period may reach up to 6 month. Cingulum usually equatorial or premedian, with or without descending displacement (left-handed). However, possibility of chemical signalling involved in cyst hatching for Polykrikos is yet to be determined. Cor marrón-vermella, debidas a diatomeas (dos xéneros Chaetoceros, Rhizosolenia etc.) bahamense. Further studies on molecular mechanisms of detoxification by Polykrikos maybe helpful in biomedical and environment-monitoring fields. The toxic, chain forming G. catenatum is part of a group of 4 species known as the microreticulate-cyst species that include the non-chain forming, non-toxic species Gymnodinium nolleri (Ellegaard and Oshima 1998), Gymnodinium microreticulatum (Bolch et al., 1999) and Gymnodinium trapeziforme (Attaran-Fariman et al., 2007). Predation by heterotrophic Polykrikos became a great topic of interest as some of the organisms graze on dinoflagellates that cause toxic blooms. Toxin group Toxin producing species Class Characteristics Mode of action Structure Domoic acid: Pseudo-nitzschia spp. Polykrikos are known to produce ejectile organelles, the extrusomes. All Polykrikos species have: 1) a slightly curved longitudinal furrow, sulcus, extending to posterior end of the organism 2) a loop-shaped acrobase, which is an anterior extension from the sulcus 3) a transverse furrow, cingulum, with the displacement 4) taeniocyst-nematocyst complexes 5) two or four times less the number of nuclei than of zooids, and 6) ability to disassemble into pseudocolonies with fewer zooids and only one nucleus. Van de meer dan 200 soorten worden er ongeveer 30 in zoet water aangetroffen. ヒオウギガイ(桧扇貝、学名 Mimachlamys nobilis )は、二枚貝綱 イタヤガイ目 イタヤガイ科の1種。 食用になる貝で、アッパガイ、バタバタ、チョウタロウ、虹色貝などの別名、緋扇貝の表記がある。 Polykrikos geminatus (F.Schütt) D.X.Qiu & Senjie Lin, Other recently discovered pathways in the sexual stage are: (1) in culture gametes can revert to an asexual phase and undergo binary fission (asexual division) rather than fusion (e.g. Gymnodinium komt in alle wateren voor.

J. Dendrobium catenatum ingår i släktet Dendrobium, och familjen orkidéer. Another extrusome found within the organism is rod-shaped taeniocyst which is distally located to nematocyst and was earlier mistakenly considered as a nematocyst-precursor. [17] Thus, reduction in water toxicity may help regulate the balance of marine food webs and decrease mortality rates of finfish, marine mammals, and sea birds. Polykrikos tanit Reñé, PSP raises socio-economic-environmental concerns as it affects the health of both marine mammals and humans, and the regulation mechanism of toxic microalgae population by P.kofoidii could be important in environmental monitoring and health hazard elimination. G. Morey-Gaines Department of Botany, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, IL 62901 U.S.A; Τhe fine structure of two photosynthetic species of Dinophysis (Dinophysiales, Dinophyceae) Ian … Ballistics in cnidarians nematocysts is driven by synthesis of osmotic propellant poly gamma glutamate synthase, PgsAA, while in Polykrikos it is thought to occur due induced pressure as a result of capsular fibre contraction in the capsule wall. [13][8], Polykrikos hartmannii is a phototrophic dinoflagellate and has been reported in waters of Canada,[14] USA, Mexico, China, India, Japan, Korea,. Within the group there is some variation in which organelles are presented, but trichocysts, nematocysts, taeniocysts, mucocysts and plastids have been observed from different members within the taxon.[8]. schwartzii),. This species is a known producer of toxins and is thus heavily studied. Furthermore, Gavelis et al. The giant lions paw scallop releases both eggs and sperm during each annual spawn. Gymnodinium catenatum is a toxic, bloom forming species of microalgae. [17] Some polykrikoid population monitoring and investigation of toxin dynamics inside the body of grazers could provide better understanding of plankton-based food webs, estimate degrees of poisoning in ecosystems and propose potential toxin elimination routes. [16] [3][4] However, there is also some data available on Polykrikos being toxic to fish. Gymnodinium catenatum Graham (Dinophyceae): Morphology and affinities with armoured forms. PMID 25097151. Variations of PSP toxin profiles during different growth phases in Gymnodinium catenatum Dinophyceae strain isolated from three locations in the Gulf of California, Mexico. "Growth and biomass stimulation of the toxic dinoflagellate Gymnodinium catenatum (Graham) by dissolved organic substances". [5], "Molecular typing of the red-tide dinoflagellate, "The Taxonomic Significance of Species That Have Only Been Observed Once: The Genus, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Gymnodinium&oldid=991936963, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, This page was last edited on 2 December 2020, at 16:39. It has been observed many times all over the world . Gymnodinium catenatum occurs in temperate to equatorial regions which are generally full marine, coastal or in the vicinity of upwelling cells. Polykrikos kofoidii, 2) Kapelodinium vestifici, 3) Ceratoperidinium falcatum, 4) Asterodinium gracile, 5) Actiniscus pentasterias, 6) Marfalefidinium polykrikoides, 7) Brachidinium capitatum, 8) Erythropsidinium agile, 9) Akashiwo sanguinea, 10) Gymnodinium sp., 11) Gymnodinium catenatum, 12) … It is native to Pacific and Gulf of California coasts of the Baja California Peninsula, Mexico, southward to the western coast of Peru. [13] Tang et al. 2. [9], In Polykrikos, well-defined fibrous ribbons are involved in nuclear-flagellar connections, and anchoring to flagellar apparatus might serve in orientation of the nucleus in relation to flagella during processes of movement, mitosis and cell division. Gymnodinium is a genus of dinoflagellates, a type of marine and freshwater plankton. Very few planozygotes went through a resting cyst stage. [3][4] Gymnodinium belong to red dinoflagellates that, in concentration, can cause red tides. This data raises the question whether such hatching pattern may reflect the Polykrikos pseudocolonies phylogeny. Such heterothrophic polykrikoids may not only cut down on the toxicity levels induced by their prey in marine food webs, but can cease the toxic blooms and could be used in bioremediation. Pyrodinium was first discovered in 1906 in the waters around New Providence Island in the Bahamas. Gamete formation was particular as pseudocolony produces 4 gametes of different sizes and morphologies than vegetative cells. However, mixothrophic P. lebouriae, phylogenetically nested among heterothropic polykrikoids, has plastids atypical of dinoflagellates. of field dinoflagellate (Gymnodinium catenatum) samples. Green mass aggregations of Gyrodinium cf. Early-branching polykrikoids, Polykrikos geminatum and P. hartmanii, have three-membrane plastids with triple stacked thylakoids that are indicative of secondary peridinin-type plastids common for dinoflagellates. Cor marrón-verdosa, debidas ós dinoflaxelados Karenia mikimotoi e Prorocentrum minimum. It is also seen as solitary cells with a green-brown colour. Gymnodinium é um género de dinoflagelados que inclui diversas espécies desprovidas de placas celulósicas (por isso chamadas dinoflagelados nus).O género foi recentemente [2] dividido em diversos géneros, com base na natureza da ranhura apical e na bioquímica (especificamente na identidade dos principais carotenóides). Only one species is known to be exclusively autotrophic (P. geminatum), while some lack the plastid and are completely heterotrophic (P. grassei, P. herdmanae, P. kofoidii and P. Thus, human consumption of seafoods harvested from areas where these dinoflagellates thrive in abundance (i.e., algal blooms) can lead to the outbreak of paralytic poisoning. Voorkoming. aureolum Hulburt in the Ria of Pontevedra (north-west Spain). The duration of encystment is associated with ecological foraging strategies. 麻痺性貝毒 (PSP: Paralytic Shellfish Poison) 毒成分:サキシトキシン (saxitoxin, STX)、テトロドトキシン (tetrodotoxin, TTX)、ゴニオトキシン (gonyautoxin, GTX) などによる 。; 毒化原因:、渦鞭毛藻類の Protogonyaulax tamarensis,Protogonyaulax catenella, Alexandrium tamarense, Gymnodinium catenatum、ビブリオ属の Vibrio alginolyticusなど。 Neosaxitoxin (NSTX) is included, as other saxitoxin-analogs, in a broad group of natural neurotoxic alkaloids, commonly known as the paralytic shellfish toxins (PSTs).The parent compound of PSTs, saxitoxin (STX), is a tricyclic perhydropurine alkaloid, which can be substituted at various positions, leading to more than 30 naturally occurring STX analogues. Polykrikos have been found to regulate algal blooms as they feed on toxic dinoflagellates. [4] G. catenatum is one of the species causing paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) and is found in waters of Australia, Japan, Mexico and Spain. This page was last edited on 22 January 2012, at 10:14. Vegetative form doubled zooids and subsequently split into four gametes of a 2-zooid-1-nucleus form. Esta página se editó por última vez el 22 oct 2019 a las 15:58. G. catenatum is a photosynthetic dinoflagellate that is most notable as the only naked dinoflagellate known to be responsible for paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP), a neurotoxic poisoning syndrome which affects human consumers of contaminated shellfish. [3] [4] IUCN kategoriserar arten globalt som akut hotad. Contreras. In this study, the oxidative stress and genotoxic responses of mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) exposed to paralytic shellfish toxin (PST) - producing dinoflagellates Gymnodinium catenatum were evaluated under i) … Polykrikos kofoidii Chatton, 麻痺性貝毒 (PSP: Paralytic Shellfish Poison) 毒成分:サキシトキシン (saxitoxin, STX)、テトロドトキシン (tetrodotoxin, TTX)、ゴニオトキシン (gonyautoxin, GTX) などによる 。; 毒化原因:、渦鞭毛藻類の Protogonyaulax tamarensis,Protogonyaulax catenella, Alexandrium tamarense, Gymnodinium catenatum、ビブリオ属の Vibrio alginolyticusなど。 Pyrodinium is well known for producing Paralytic Shellfish Toxins, e.g. The nematocyst is a larger organelle and lies posterior to taeniocyst. Under culture conditions most organisms undergone meiosis and directly entered vegetative cycle. We want to test the hypothesis that viral community structure and function are linked to specific bloom stages and co-regulate the fate of HABs. [7] [9] Often Polykrikos have half the number of nuclei than zooids, and each pair of zooids shares a nucleus. • Estrada, Norma; Ascencio, Felipe; Shoshani, Liora (December 2014). In 1873 Butschili re-examined the specimen and concluded that the cell was an unusual ciliate, and Bergh later, in 1881, clarified Polykrikos dinoflagellate affinities.[6]. 赫氏圆石藻(学名:Emiliania huxleyi),经常被缩写为“EHUX”,是一种遍布全球水域的钙板金藻。 它被用来研究夏季的温跃层后营养耗尽的水中形成的大范围水华。 就像其他的钙板金藻一样,'赫氏圆石藻是一种包覆着独特碳酸钙盘状外壳的单细胞海洋浮游植物。 High predation impact by Polykrikos schwartzii Butschili on toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium tamarense (Lebour) Balech was reported in Argentina, while Polykrikos kofoidii Chatton was controlling Gymnodium catenatum Graham in Portuguese and Japanese coastal waters. [10] Organelles are located in proximity, but lie within different membranes and are separated by a passage, called “chute”. In upwelling regions its cysts are produced during active upwelling or upwelling relaxation. It has two membranes and contain the double-stacked thylakoids that are found in diatoms and haptophytes. The dinoflagellates (class Dinophyceae) are the most notorious producers of toxins. Genus Gymnodinium Stein, 1878 Cells unarmoured. compressum and Pyrodinium bahamanse var. Nucleus is uniquely characterised by a double-layered fibrous cortex that underlines evaginated nuclear envelope; cortex is hypothesized to provide strength and shape to the nucleus, while nuclear evaginations are thought to increase nuclear-cytoplasmic exchange area at cortex perforation sites. 해당 패류독소를 생성하는 플랑크톤으로 Alexandrium catenella, Pyrodinium bahamense, Gymnodinium catenatum 등이 있으며, 섭취 후 안면마비, 사지마비, 보행곤란 등의 증세가 나타나며, 호흡곤란으로 사망할 수 … Single cell or chain-forming species. [1]Inga underarter finns listade i Catalogue of Life. Transcriptomics analysis demonstrated multiple losses events in polykrikoids that might be explained from energetics and physiological restriction perspectives. Pyrodinium is a monospecific species with two varieties, Pyrodinium bahamense var. Algae - Algae - Toxicity: Some algae can be harmful to humans.

PSP (Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning): toxina paralizante ou, impropiamente, paralítica, provocada por proliferación das especies Alexandium minutum e Gymnodinium catenatum. Polykrikos (from Greek “poly” - many, and “krikos” – ring or circle) is one of the genera of family Polykrikaceae that includes athecate pseudocolony-forming dinoflagellates. Polykrikos lebouriae Herdman, The results may contribute to the current understanding of the viral regulatory role in algal bloom events. A few species produce toxins that may be concentrated in shellfish and finfish, which are thereby rendered unsafe or poisonous for human consumption. G. catenatum is one of the species causing paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) and is found in waters of Australia, Japan, Mexico and Spain. One of them is a nematocyst formed in zooids. Materials and Methods 2.1. 1991. [3]Taxonomia. [8] Golgi-derived vacuoles are shared by both organelles and supply each with molecules needed for its growth along with participating in NTC articulation. Composition. There is also variation in feeding ecology as some species have plastids and can use photosynthesis to obtain nutrients but often happen to be mixotrophs (P. barnegatensis, P. lebouriae, P tanit, P. hartmannii). Gymnodinium komt in alle wateren voor.

Gymnodinium catenatum Graham 1943– This species was originally described by Graham from a bloom in the Gulf of California, with a 384 word description in English . The most distinctive feature of polykrikoids is their formation of multinucleate "pseudocolonies" consisting of an even number of subunit zooids.The two genera differ in number of nuclei; possessing two nuclei regardless of the number of zooids is a synapomorphy for Polykrikos, whereas Pheopolykrikos possess equal numbers of nuclei and zooids. 219 (12): 964–974. Predation of toxic microalgae by heterotrophic dinoflagellates is one of the factors controlling the algal blooms. A majority of species are planktonic with theexception of Polykrikos lebouriae and Polykrikos herdmanae that are found in benthic habitat. Dendrobium catenatum [2] är en orkidéart som beskrevs av John Lindley. [8] Transverse flagellum has the lateral projections, mastigonemes, and striated strand common to other dinoflagellates. However, molecular data analysis by Gavelis et al. [3] Several bloom-forming and toxin producing species are known (e.g., Gynbidinium catenatum, Fig. Gradual increase in size of Polykrikos makes the organisms great predators, but increase in body size of single cells is known to result in increased self-shading of chloroplasts and decreased surface area to volume ratio, leading to decreased photosynthetic efficiency. [12], All known Polykrikos species are found in marine environments. [15] Short dormancy period could facilitate rapid cycling between life cycle stages that could be beneficial to heterotrophic species in case of fluctuating food availability. All structured data from the file and property namespaces is available under the Creative Commons CC0 License; all unstructured text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License; additional terms may apply. Two gametes further paired up with their ventral sides and fused forming a planozygote. The most distinctive feature of polykrikoids is their formation of multinucleate "pseudocolonies" consisting of an even number of subunit zooids.The two genera differ in number of nuclei; possessing two nuclei regardless of the number of zooids is a synapomorphy for Polykrikos, whereas Pheopolykrikos possess equal numbers of nuclei and zooids. Polykrikos are characterized by a sophisticated ballistic apparatus,[2] named the nematocyst-taeniocyst complex, which allows species to prey on a variety of organisms. Some gonyaulacoid dinoflagellates and single species of gymnodinoid, Gymnodinium catenatum, are known to produce STX or GTXs, and these dinoflagellates have the longer sxtA transcript that includes the A4 domain [33 ,57 ]. When organisms were well-fed, they appeared as 4-zooid-2-nuclei pseudocolonies, and during vegetative reproduction doubled number of zooids followed by nuclei division leading to 8-zooid-4-nuclei stage with further transverse binary division into two 4-zooid-2-nuclei Polykrikos. "Apoptosis of hemocytes from lions-paw scallop Nodipecten subnodosus induced with paralyzing shellfish poison from Gymnodinium catenatum". Germling, a single zooid cell, emerging from the cyst, had a unique development that has never been documented for any free-living dinoflagellate. [13] Also, a comparison of three Polykrikos species feeding revealed that species differ in their prey preference, and some are more specialized than the other, such that P. hartmanii preying is less diverse (fed on 2 prey species) than of P. kofoidii and P. lebouriae, which fed on 14 different algal species.[13]. This organic compound has similarities to sporopollenin, but is unique to dinoflagellates. doi : 10.1016/S0022-0981(98)00193-2 . 3.8). [3] deeply examined NTC morphology and ballistic mechanism that were shown to be fundamentally different from cnidarians, demonstrating nematocysts have evolved independently in single-celled dinoflagellates. [5] observed P. hartmannii bloom that caused 100% mortality in juvenile sheepshead minnows (Cyprinodon variegates) within 24 hours suggesting P. hartmannii is an ichthyotoxic, harmful alga. Dentro desta familia lévanse descritas 21 variedades, entre as que destacan as carbamate toxinas (STX) e … The size of these cells ranges from 38 - 53 um long and 33 - 45 um wide. Presence of specialised NTC and large cell size might have triggered multiple losses of photosynthesis. Commonly affected by changes in climate and environmental conditions, coastal areas are very dynamic environments where shellfish play an important ecological role. It is a chain-forming, toxin-producing, red tide species associated with PSP events throughout the world. [5], Polykrikos was first seen in 1868 by Uljanin and was mistakenly considered as a metazoan larva of a turbellarian flatworms. As the tubule passes through the nozzle, it opens the operculum and uncoils after. Dinosporin is a macromolecular, highly resistant organic compound which forms or partly forms, the enclosing wall of fossilizable organic-walled dinoflagellate cysts.. Carlos Jiménez, F.Xavier Niell, F.G. Figueiras, Vicente Clavero, Patricia Algarra, e José Buela. [2] Amphidinium was redefined later. Nodipecten subnodosus is a species of scallop known by the common name giant lions paw. The walls of organic-walled dinocysts are composed of the resistant biopolymer called dinosporin. For P. kofoidii two copulation finger-shaped structures were observed in gametes that are presumably involved in gamete contact and fusion, but more data is needed to confirm this. This species produces red tide blooms and has been associated with fish and invertebrate kills in Japan and Florida. Theca with or without longitudinal ridges or ribs. Toxin group Toxin producing species Class Characteristics Mode of action Structure Domoic acid: Pseudo-nitzschia spp. Sommige soorten Gymnodinium vormen kettingachtige kolonies, zoals o.a. Its morphology clearly went from a 1-zooid-1-nucleus, over a 2-zooid-1-nucleus, and a 4-zooid-1-nucleus into the 4-zooid-2-nucleus stage. Polykrikos hartmannii W.Zimmermann, Some gonyaulacoid dinoflagellates and single species of gymnodinoid, Gymnodinium catenatum, are known to produce STX or GTXs, and these dinoflagellates have the longer sxtA transcript that includes the A4 domain [33 ,57 ]. Polykrikos schwartzii Bütschli, [11], For the genus of Polykrikos, detailed data is available on reproduction of a type species (holotype) P. kofoidii, whose life cycle resembles general dinoflagellate cycle as vegetative cells form gametes that fuse to form a diploid (2n) zygote that could encyst, but pseudocolonial nature adds a number of peculiarities to the Polykrikos development.[12]. Polykrikos is a colony of zooids (units of a colonial organism) that carry out simultaneous functions of a whole cell. Arrival of these HABs, often more … Cor marrón-chocolate, debidas ó flaxelado Heterosigma akashiwo. [9], There is a variation in nutrient acquisition among Polykrikos species as some exclusively rely on photosynthesis, some are mixothrophs, while some are obligate heterotrophs which makes Polykrikos a useful group to study for organellar evolution. Small to large cells with varied morphology from spherical to biconical and lobed to pyriform. Encasing coiled tubule capsule, unlike in cnidarians, is sealed, which forces stylet upon firing first to puncture the capsule from within to free the filament, and only later to pierce the prey. Characteristics. doi:10.1016/j.imbio.2014.07.006. Hydrography and phytoplankton of the Ría de Vigo before and during a red tide of Gymnodinium catenatum Graham. Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology 236 (1): 33–47. : Bacillariophyceae: Hydrophilic N-toxin: Glutamate receptor agonist: Saxitoxins (neosaxitoxins, gonyautoxins): Alexandrium spp., Pyrodinium bahamense, Gymnodinium catenatum… de soort G. impudicum. G. catenatum, een zeer giftige soort, is een van de kettingachtige soorten. Van de meer dan 200 soorten worden er ongeveer 30 in zoet water aangetroffen. Karenia brevis (formerly known as Gymnodinium breve and Ptychodiscus brevis) and related species are dinoflagellates that can form HABs known as "Florida red tides." The ventrally fused gametes required a complex rearrangement of eight flagella and formation of sulci and cinguli. Voorkoming. P.hartmannii feeds on chain-forming dinoflagellates Cochlodinium polykrikoides and Gymnodinium catenatum that are also known to cause fish mortality, and therefore P. hartmannii is thought to have enzymes that detoxify toxins produced by these prey dinoflagellates. However, some Polykrikos pose a health risk to certain fishes, while the bloom-regulating ones are often preyed on by marine invertebrates, like amphipods, which would return the toxins back into the food web. Polykrikos are known to modulate populations of dinoflagellates like Alexandrium tamarense,[3][4] and G. catenatum,[17] which are among prevalent agents of toxic algal blooms. Files are available under licenses specified on their description page. G. catenatum, een zeer giftige soort, is een van de kettingachtige soorten. Characteristics. Cytoplasm of Polykrikos is characterized by numerous rough endoplasmic reticulum nets, Golgi complexes and vacuoles. The 4-zooid planozygote had only one nucleus and had two developmental pathways depending on food availability. : Bacillariophyceae: Hydrophilic N-toxin: Glutamate receptor agonist: Saxitoxins (neosaxitoxins, gonyautoxins): Alexandrium spp., Pyrodinium bahamense, Gymnodinium catenatum… Since 2000, the species which had been considered to be part of Gymnodinium have been divided into several genera, based on the nature of the apical groove and partial LSU rDNA sequence data.
