Brevetoxins are structurally quite different from gonyautoxins, lacking any salt-like charaeter in particular, and affect cellular membrane channels which are needed to import food. Brevetoxins are acetogenins, but are far more eomplex in structure than EPA and vegetable oils. The problem of detecting brevetoxins at the subtrace level with which they oceur in fish and mollusks is a serious one as normal methods of analytical chernistry are not sensitive enough. However, in combining this with biological methods a solution has been offered to this problem: tritium-labeled radioaetive precursors are fed to G.

These compounds are called phytoalexins, a word derived from ancient Greek to mean "warding-off".
