analysis of a unique clostridium botulinum strain from the southern hemisphere producing a novel type e botulinum neurotoxin subtype.clostridium botulinum strains that produce botulinum neurotoxin type e (bont/e) are most commonly isolated from botulism cases, marine environments, and animals in regions of high latitude in the northern hemisphere. a strain of c. botulinum type e (cdc66177) was isolated from soil in chubut, argentina. previous studies showed that the amino acid sequences of bont/e produced by various strains differ by < 6% and that the type e neurotoxin gene cluster inserts into the rara operon.201223113872
