Eun Seob Cho, Gi-Young Kim, Bong Chol Oh, Lesley L. Rhodes, Jae-Dong Lee
ABSTRACT
We applied fluorescent lectins to discriminate between toxic and non-toxic dinoflagellates in order to develop and improve the monitoring and prediction programs in Korean coastal waters. The differentiation between C. polykrikoides and G. impudicum using fluorescent-labeled lectins was achieved by the application of lectins, ECA, HPA and WGA. The lectin WGA was found to be useful tool for discrimination of toxic G. catenatum from non-toxic G. impudicum.
