The amino-terminal region of the enterotoxin of Clostridium perfringens was investigated by automated sequence analysis. The primary structure results revealed that the enterotoxin is composed of a single polypeptide amino acid sequence. Computer comparison of a 20-residue sequence with a sequence library of reported proteins revealed no significant chemical similarities, indicating that the enterotoxin represents a unique polypeptide primary structure.
