Abstract:

A study was made of the action of microbial and fungal proteolytic enzymes on the activation of Cl. perfringens D and E of specified strains. An activating effect of the fungus in microbial proteolytic enzymes on the D and E prototoxins was revealed. The results indicated that in gas gangrene caused by Cl. perfringens D and E a possible non-specific activation of prototoxins of specified bacteria and aggravation of the infectious process may occur.
