Clostridium perfringens enterotoxin (CPE), the virulence factor responsible for symptoms associated with C. perfringens type A food poisoning, is produced by enterotoxigenic C. perfringens type A isolates when these bacteria sporulate in the gastrointestinal tract. Less than 5% of the global C. perfringens population apparently carries the cpe gene. To assess the distribution of cpe-regulatory factors, we investigated whether the cpe gene of a C. perfringens food poisoning isolate can be… CONTINUE READING
