Purification and Molecular Weight Determination of Clostridium Botulinum Type E Toxin.

Abstract

Gerwing, Julia (The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada), Claude E. Dolman, M. E. Reichmann, and Hardial S. Bains. Purification and molecular weight determination of Clostridium botulinum type E toxin. J. Bacteriol. 88:216-219. 1964.-A method was developed whereby type E botulinus toxin can be obtained in a highly purified state by elution through acidified diethylaminoethyl-cellulose columns. The material thus isolated appears to be electrophoretically and ultracentrifugally homogeneous. A molecular weight of 18,600 was calculated for the toxin.
