Fig. 7. Change of toxin components and glutathione (GSH) in the mixture of gonyautoxins (GTX) 2,3 and bacterial homogenates during incubation. GTX2,3 (10 μmol·L–1) was incubated with the homogenates at 30°C. Change of toxin components in the homogenate with 0.1 M phosphate buffer, pH 7.4. (b) Change of toxin components in the homogenate with 0.1 M borate buffer, pH 7.4 containing 100 mM L-serine. Open circle, GTX2,3; closed circle, saxitoxin; white bar, GSH level. PSP, paralytic shellfish toxins. Reprinted from Sakamoto et al., Formation of intermediate conjugates in the reductive transformation of gonyautoxins to saxitoxins by thiol compounds.
