saxitoxin

Neurotoxin produced by the 'red tide' dinoflagellates, Gonyaulax catenella and G. tamarensis . It binds to the sodium channel, blocking the passage of action potentials. Its action closely resembles that of tetrodotoxin. The toxin was originally isolated from the clam, Saxidomus giganteus .

saxitoxin

neurotoxin found in a variety of dinoflagellates. If ingested, it may cause respiratory failure and cardiac arrest.
