Distribution and origin of tetrodotoxin

Distribution and origin of tetrodotoxin

Journal of Toxicology, Toxin Reviews 20(1): 11-33

Among the marine toxins relevant for human intoxication, tetrodotoxin (TTX) has been known as one of the most prejudicial. Puffer fish were originally thought to be the only animal from which TTX could be isolated.
