A contribution toward the development of chemically reproducible media for the production of CLOSTRIDIUM PERFRINGENS toxins Currie, John Fisher


A method for the production of a hot hemolysin by CI. perfringens in a chemically defined medium is described. A factor essential for the production of lecithinase (alpha toxin ) has been partially purified from dried meat. It is suggested that this toxigenic factor is a protein derivative.
