Domoic Acid(Cat No.: R056495) is a naturally occurring toxin produced by certain species of marine microalgae, such as Pseudo-nitzschia spp., and causes Amnesic Shellfish Poisoning (ASP) in humans and wildlife when consumed via contaminated shellfish or other seafood. Domoic acid is a potent neurotoxin that can cause damage to the brain and nervous system, leading to symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, confusion, seizures, and in severe cases, coma or death.
