This dinoflagellate species forms red tides as for instance, the common “Florida red tide,” and is associated with mortalities of marine animals, especially massive fish kills and also birds and mammals. 2004b). Substantial numbers of bottlenose dolphins have been poisoned by brevetoxins. The substituents illustrated correspond to PbTx-2 and 3 (B-backbone) and PbTx-1 and PbTx-7 (A-backbone). The majority of plastid-containing dinoflagellates contain the photopigment peridinin, with the remainder having originated relatively recently through tertiary endosymbioses (Schnepf and Elbrachter 1999). Jeong et al. Karenia brevisis found almost exclusively off the cost of Florida to the Gulf of Mexico. Other Karenia species are reported as “fish killer” without evidence of human effect.

Brevetoxins are also associated with mass kills of finfish, as well as significant seabird and marine mammal mortalities. Direct inhalation of aerosols of contaminated water is another source of exposure. Karenia brevis: is a microscopic, single-celled, photosynthetic organism that is part of the Karenia (dinoflagellate) genus, a marine dinoflagellate commonly found in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Indeed, there is no obvious relict of the haptophyte cytosol or cytosol-contained structures, with all bounding membranes tightly appressed. Animals may present with catarrhal inflammation of the nasal sinuses, which often contain copious exudate with submucosal congestion and hemorrhage. Karenia brevis is a microscopic, single-celled, photosynthetic organism that is part of the Karenia (dinoflagellate) genus, a marine dinoflagellate commonly found in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This study demonstrated that copper sulfate can be effective in destroying the red tide in open waters, but that the treatment provided only temporary relief. Some dinoflagellates harbor foreign plastids that are periodically lost and gained during their life cycle (kleptoplastidy, from the Greek ‘klepto’ – stealing), or bear photosynthetic endosymbionts that are kept for longer periods but not fully integrated (Moestrup & Daugbjerg, 2007). The latter hypothesis is supported by the fact that Dinophysis species can only be cultured using the ciliate Myrionecta rubra as prey, which itself feeds on cryptophytes and would thus be the source for Dinophysis of the cryptophytes and their chloroplasts (Park et al., 2006). The peridinin-containing dinoflagellates have evolved a tripartite N-terminal extension containing two hydrophobic domains for targeting nuclear-coded plastid proteins to the organelle (Nassoury et al. Furthermore, the method is considered cost effective and less labor-intensive compared with clay dispersal. Genus Karenia is an unarmored dinoflagellate. Peter M. Rabinowitz, ... Lora E. Fleming, in Human-Animal Medicine, 2010. 2004; Nisbet et al. A diagnosis of brevetoxicosis is typically based on history, necropsy findings, brevetoxin analysis, and exclusion of other etiologies. Gymnodinium nagasakiense was killed within 30 min at 4.5–6 mg/L (Miyazaki et al., 1990). A number of natural substances and extracts have been shown to have algaecidal properties. Species: Karenia brevis final classification is given for its short blooms. Species in the United States that release these harmful toxins include: The species is found worldwide, with toxic blooms of Karenia brevis (formerly known as Gymnodinium breve and Ptychodiscus brevis) being the organism most frequently associated with red tides in the Gulf of Mexico, and occasionally on the Southeast coast of the United States… The term “red tide” is applied to various dinoflagellate blooms worldwide, but in Florida, it usually refers to blooms of Karenia brevis and its associated brevetoxins (PbTx), which consist of multiple polycyclic polyether compounds. Caruana, Zouher Amzil, in Microalgae in Health and Disease Prevention, 2018. Ozone treatment was also tested against Karenia brevis and its toxins (Schneider et al., 2003). The most common cause of lethal brevetoxicosis in manatees is the ingestion of K. brevis on sea grasses, which leads to respiratory paralysis and other neurologic effects. The NSP toxins produced by Karenia species are closely related in general structure and biological activity to the ciguatoxins responsible for ciguatoxic fish poisoning (CFP) produced by the dinoflagellate Gambierdiscus toxicus. The treatment also reduced concentrations of ammonium and total inorganic nitrogen while dissolved oxygen levels remained within acceptable levels. Another species, Chatonella antique, required 24 h exposure for the cells to burst. Karenia brevis is a dinoflagellate which is found in the Gulf of Mexico, along the coasts of Texas, Louisiana, Florida, and North Carolina. for their killing ability against Chatonella ovata, C. verruculosa, Alexandrium tamarense, Heterocapsa circularisquama, Eutreptiella gymnastica, and Oltmannsiellopsis viridis. Many of these metabolites have a very different toxicity from the parent compound and thus the pharmacology and toxicological consequence of exposure to a NSP event will be dependent on the combination of metabolites present and their relative receptor-binding physiology (Baden et al., 2005). K. selliformis also produces the toxin gymnodimine while another member of the genus, K. mikimotoi produces hemolytic glycolipids (Parrish et al., 1998). Within the Gymnodiniales, the Kareniaceae genera Karenia, Karlodinium and Takayama contain endosymbionts of haptophyte origin that now serve as their photosynthetic plastids (Figs 1 and 3). Moreover, two processes for mature transcript production—polyuridylation and substitutional editing—are both now found in these dinoflagellate plastids, whereas they do not occur in the plastids of haptophytes (Dorrell, Hinksman, & Howe, 2016; Dorrell & Howe, 2012; Richardson, Dorrell, & Howe, 2014). However, their optimal range is 22-28 degrees Celsius. Fabrice Not, ... Ian Probert, in Advances in Botanical Research, 2012. In cases where the respiratory tract is affected, inhalation of the toxin is presumed, however, there is no indication that inhalation alone can produce lethal doses. In a recent report, Imai et al. Red tide found in at least 4 Florida counties. This genus is found throughout the world, but usually in sparse abundance unless they are blooming. The technique of using barley for algae control was developed in the early 1990s in England where it is widely used in many bodies of water, including large reservoirs and canals. These blooms are generally referred to as harmful algal blooms(HABs), but are also sometimes referred to as red tides. (2002) reported finding algaecidal bacteria growing on the surface of macroalgae such as Ulva sp. Jun’ichi Kobayashi, Takaaki Kubota, in Comprehensive Natural Products II, 2010, Gymnocins A (167) and B (168) are a series of cytotoxic polyether compounds isolated from the notorious red tide dinoflagellate Karenia mikimotoi. According to the chromalveolate hypothesis, the ancestral plastid of red algal origin was maintained in the chromist lineage and went through significant changes in the alveolates. Similarly, K. umbella was identified on the Tasman Peninsula following the mortalities of a 1000 farmed rainbow trout and salmon (De Salas et al., 2004). They are best known for their dense toxic algal blooms and red tides that cause considerable ecological and economical damage; some Karenia species cause severe animal mortality. Seven novel diterpenes, 266–272 (Ioannou et al., 2009), possessing the rare 2,6-cyclo-xenicane skeleton, were isolated from the brown algae Dilophus fasciola an D. spiralis. General dinoflagellate phylogenies still require molecular data for many dinoflagellate genera (especially for heterotrophic species), taxonomic revision of some species and identification of species likely to correspond to missing branches of phylogenetic trees (Fig. 1.4). This raises the possibility that minicircle genes in different dinoflagellates may be found in either, or potentially both, plastids and nuclei. Blooms of K. mikimotoi are commonly linked with kill kills in Norway and Japan as well as with marine fauna kills, but are not associated with human intoxications (Gentien, 1998; Yamasaki et al., 2004). However, other species displayed growth stimulation and there was no effect for others. Shilo and Aschner (1953) showed that toxicity can be decreased through aeration and treatments with potassium permanganate and sodium hypochlorite. A composite of all observations of Karenia brevis made by the Florida Wildlife Research Institute from 1953 through 2007. Karenia brevis is the organism that causes red tide. (2004b) examined the effect of sophorolipid on Alexandrium tamarense, Heterosigma akashiwo, and Cochlodinium polykrikoides. Compounds 273–277 are four xenicane-type diterpenes obtained from the brown alga D. ligulatus, among which 277 is a novel bicyclic diterpene derivative and showed significant cytotoxic activity (ED50 < 4 μg/mL) against KB (human nasopharynx carcinoma) cells, NSCLC-N6 (human lung carcinoma) cells, and P-388 (murine leukemia) cells (Bouaicha et al., 1993). Tertiary endosymbiosis occurs when an alga containing a plastid of secondary endosymbiotic origin (e.g., chromists) is engulfed and reduced to the photosynthetic organelle. In brackish water environments, chemical control is the primary means of dealing with Prymnesium parvum blooms and their toxins. In vitro, PbTx has been shown to activate mast cells, resulting in degranulation and production of proinflammatory cytokines such as IL-6 (Hilderbrand et al., 2011). Blooms of a halophilic dinoflagellate Karenia brevis (formerly known as Ptychodiscus brevis) are reported to be the cause of brevetoxin (BTX) in seafoods. These sequences code for the core subunits of the photosystem, cytochrome b6f, ATP synthase complex (atpA, atpB, petB, petD, psaA, psaB, psbA-E, psbI) and four other proteins (ycf16, ycf24, rpl28, and rpl23).The remaining genes required for photosynthesis have been lost from the plastid and presumably moved to the nucleus. The haptophyte-derived plastid, therefore, represents an intimately integrated organelle equivalent to plastids in other algae and plants. A broader list of bacteria and their targets is presented in Mayali and Azam (2004). 1999, 2001, 2002; Barbrook and Howe 2000; Hiller 2001; Laatsch et al. Toxic … Question. In the US, the most recent (and last) attempt to control a bloom in the ocean took place in 1957 when copper sulfate was aerially dispersed to treat Karenia brevis (Rounsefell and Evans, 1958). The responsible species is Karenia brevis (Florida) or K. brevisulcatum (New Zealand), though several closely related species (K. papilionacea, K. selliformis, K bidigitata) isolated from New Zealand waters have also shown low levels of NSP toxicity (Haywood et al., 2004). Karenia is found throughout the world in both oceanic and coastal waters. 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). All genes are contained on a single organelle chromosome, but there is evidence that some additional gene copies occur on smaller extrachromosomal DNAs, potentially mimicking development of the peridinin minicircles (Espelund et al., 2012). Brevetoxins have often proven to be lethal to manatees, especially along the southwest coast of Florida. (2002) confirmed that growth inhibition occur in several algal species with exposure to barley straw extract. Some major phylogenetic traits can, however, be identified for dinoflagellates (Fig. 1.4). K. digitata was identified on the west coast of Japan and Hong Kong due to ichthyotoxic effects (Yang et al., 2000). Nagayama et al. Humans, who are generally exposed in areas with red tide events off the coasts of Florida and North Carolina or in the Gulf of Mexico, exhibit a variety of upper and lower respiratory symptoms, including coughing, sneezing, rhinorrhea, and bronchoconstriction (Backer et al., 2003, 2005). In addition, BTX-B2 and S-desoxy-BTX-B2 have been reported as the most abundant B-type BTX metabolites in the Eastern oyster (Wang et al., 2004). It is possible that the period of coexistence of two different plastid types necessitated some divergence of these transit peptide properties, and these have been maintained since loss of the peridinin plastid. These are lipid soluble and heat-stable, cyclic polyether compounds. (2002) examined the used of sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) from the electrolysis of seawater against phytoplankton, heterotrophic protists, planktonic crustaceans, finfish, shellfish, and macroalgae. 300–500 ppb for 10 min, and 200–400 ppb for 1 h) may effectively eliminate the bloom without serious damage to other co-occurring species, except for the heterotrophic dinoflagellates. Both A-type and B-type brevetoxins commonly co-occur in the dinoflagellates with the major toxin in K. brevis being PbTx-2 with lesser amounts of PbTx-1 and PbTx-3 (a reduced derivative of PbTx-2) (Baden and Tomas, 1988). Prymnesin may also be destroyed by exposure to strong light in the UV and visible range in laboratory experiments (Glass et al., 1991). The two thecate dinoflagellates (A. tamarense and H. circularisquama) were relatively unaffected compared with the other species, which suggest that the theca may offer some protection. In Korea, the distribution and lethality of algaecidal bacteria against Cochlodinium polykrikoides were studied in a local bay. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V.

The NSP toxins produced by Karenia species are closely related in general structure and biological activity to the ciguatoxins responsible for ciguatoxic fish poisoning (CFP) produced by the dinoflagellate Gambierdiscus toxicus. This can occur even after a HAB has dissipated. Deeds et al. New Zealand has also had outbreaks of toxicoses due to brevetoxins. Baek et al. Karenia is known to divide very slowly, but are able to form dense blooms probably due to their ability to swim quickly, which likely allows them access to higher co… Brevetoxins are produced primarily by marine dinoflagellates belonging to the genus Karenia. Only dinoflagellates are known until now to have tertiary plastids. Less is known about the processes that drive blooms which affect the western Gulf of Mexico (GoM). New Zealand has also had outbreaks of toxicoses due to brevetoxins. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. The NSP toxins can aerosolize in the surf and lead to respiratory distress, especially among older populations (Sobel and Painter, 2005). These blooms occur with greatest frequency on the Gulf Coast of Florida. It occurs annually in the Gulf of Mexico. Fig. 5.3. Log in for more information. Exposure to PbTxs has been shown to induce more severe respiratory effects in individuals with asthma (Fleming et al., 2007). The responsible species is Karenia brevis (Florida) or K. brevisulcatum (New Zealand), though several closely related species (K. papilionacea, K. selliformis, K bidigitata) isolated from New Zealand waters have also shown low levels of NSP toxicity (Haywood et al., 2004). These events differ dramatically from the previously described PSP toxins in that (a) the toxins are lipophilic in contrast to water soluble, (b) the intoxication events are often associated with massive fish kills and invertebrate die offs, and (c) the events to date are limited to the south-eastern United States, in particular the Gulf of Mexico, and New Zealand. (2003) reported on the effect of phlorotannins from the brown algae Ecklonia kurome, on Karenia mikimotoi, Cochlodinium polykrikoides, and Chatonella antiqua. These bacteria were lethal against Karenia mikimotoi, Fibrocapsa japonica, and Heterosigma akashiwo. Karenia brevis mostly live on the surface of water and not at depths as they need light to survive. With certain naturally occurring or anthropogenic changes to the environment, these dinoflagellates can proliferate to the extent that they cause a “red tide,” a form of HAB. This project will determine the processes that drive K. brevis blooms in the western GoM and lead to better mitigation of blooms along the Texas coast. These neonates present with classic signs of negative energy balance including emaciation, serous atrophy of fat, acinar atrophy (zymogen granule depletion) in the pancreas, and hepatocellular atrophy. Miyazaki et al. To date, comparison of morphological, cytological and nuclear genetic markers (18S rRNA gene, 28S rRNA gene, ITS rDNA) has not clearly resolved relationships between dinoflagellate orders. To date, 10 species are considered potentially toxic: K. bidigitata (synonym of K. bicuneiformis, Guiry and Guiry, 2017), K. brevis (formerly Ptychodiscus brevis and Gymnodinium breve), K. brevisulcata, K. concordia, K. cristata, K. digitata, K. mikimotoi, K. papilionaceae, K. selliformis, and K. umbella. An extensive sea grass loss due to reduced water clarity from multiple brown tide algae blooms led to a dietary shift to macroalgae in manatees in the Indian River Lagoon on Florida’s Atlantic coast, which has been suggested as a causal factor in an unusual mortality event that peaked in 2013 (M. deWit, unpublished observation). Karenia brevis is the type species for the genus, and is known as the organism associated with Florida red tides. Of these, 256 showed high algicidal activity against Heterosigma akashiwo, Karenia mikimotoi at a dose of 10–20 μg/mL and moderate activity (41.5 ± 8.2% at 10 μg/mL) against dinoflagellate Alexandrium catenella (Kim et al., 2006). Karenia brevis is the organism that causes red tide. The new transit peptides for the haptophyte lack the stop-transfer membrane anchors and are also uncharacteristically acidic in nature (Patron & Waller, 2007; Patron et al., 2006). For instance, Furuki and Kobayashi (1991) noted that certain bacteria can both promote and inhibit the proliferation of Chatonella sp. Similarly, cultures of Prorocentrium triestinum, Scrippsiella trochoidea, and Karenia digitata were killed within 15 min after exposure to 1 g O3/m3 (Ho and Wong, 2004). Cell growth was inhibited with 5 mg/L of the extract. The public health challenge is to provide timely preventive information for Florida's dynamic resident and tourist populations about the exposures and health effects of Florida red tide.15 In a unique collaboration, the Florida Department of Health (FDOH), CDC, NOAA, and public and private partners have established a linked network of public health information resources and exposure and disease surveillance on Florida red tide. Currently, medium amounts of Karenia brevis over 100,000 cells per liter signals bloom conditions. This genus is toxic and can be found in costal and oceanic water. The survival of Cyprinodon variegates in fish bioassays was inversely related to the time after ozone treatment, indicating a reduction in toxicity over time. The toxins accumulate in filter-feeding mollusks, and consumption of brevetoxin-contaminated shellfish is the major source of serious exposures to humans. Remarkably, a recent article from Laatsch et al. It is relatively sporadic in abundance, but it can form large blooms in the summer or fall which can have severe ecological and economical consequences. During a Kerenia brevis algal bloom manatees often wash ashore dead, both from ingesting and inhaling the noxious fumes. Because red tides are transported by currents, some, including last year’s bloom, have even been carried by the Gulf Stream current into the Atlantic Ocean. They may also develop irritation of the upper airways by inhalation of contaminated aerosols. Substantial numbers of bottlenose dolphins have been poisoned by brevetoxins.
