Fig. 8. Change of toxin components in the mixture of gonyautoxins (GTX) 1,4 and glutathione (GSH) during incubation. GTX1,4 (4 μM) was incubated with 1 mL of 8 mM GSH in 0.1 M phosphate buffer, pH 7.4, at 70°C. Open square, GTX1,4 in the reaction mixture; closed square, neoSTX in the reaction mixture; open circle, GTX1,4 in the phosphate buffer as a control.
