Abstract

Some Clostridium species produce ABX-type protein cytotoxins of high molecular weight. These toxins constitute the group of large clostridial cytotoxins (LCTs), which have homologous protein sequences, exert glycosyltransferase activity and modify GTP-binding proteins of the Ras-superfamily. These characteristics render the LCTs valuable tools for developmental and cell biologists.
