The suitability and sensitivity of two neural cell models, NG108-15 and Neuro-2a, to different marine toxins were evaluated under different incubation and exposure times and in the presence or absence of ouabain and veratridine (O/V). NG108-15 cells were more sensitive to pectenotoxin-2 than Neuro-2a cells. For saxitoxin, brevetoxin-3, palytoxin, okadaic acid and dinophysistoxin-1 both cell types proved to be sensitive and suitable for toxicity evaluation. For domoic acid preliminary results were presented. Setting incubation time and exposure time proved to be critical for the development of the assays. In order to reduce the duration of the assays, it was better to reduce cell time incubation previous to toxin exposure than exposure time. For palytoxin, after 24h of growth, both cell types were sensitive in the absence of O/V. When growth time previous to toxin exposure was reduced, both cell types were unsensitive to palytoxin when O/V was absent. Although dinophysistoxin-1 and okadaic acid are both phosphatase inhibitors, these toxins did not respond similarly in front of the experimental conditions studied. Both cell types were able to identify Na-channel acting toxins and allowed to quantify the effect of saxitoxin, brevetoxin-3, palytoxin, okadaic acid, dinophysistoxin-1 and pectenotoxin-2 under different experimental conditions.
