Clostridium perfringens Major Toxins


The CloPer-MjTx-Panel-4 comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of the 4 major toxins from Clostridium perfringens (alpha, beta, epsilon and iota) by using qPCR. Clostridium perfringens is a ubiquitous pathogen that produces many toxins and hydrolytic enzymes related with different diseases. This bacterium has 5 different toxinotypes (named A, B, C, D and E) and 4 major toxins (named Alpha, Beta, Epsilon and Iota). The toxinotypes are a broad description and can contain one or more toxins (see table).

Several common diseases associated with C. perfringens are food-poisoning, gas gangrene, and many veterinary diseases.
