Gonyautoxin-1 (Cat No.:T000008) is a type of neurotoxin produced by certain species of algae, including Alexandrium and Gymnodinium. It belongs to the saxitoxin group of toxins and can cause paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) in humans. GTX-1 acts by blocking sodium channels in nerve cells, leading to symptoms such as tingling, numbness, and paralysis if consumed. It is closely monitored in shellfish and other seafood to prevent PSP outbreaks, as the toxin can accumulate in these organisms.
