Sixty-two Clostridium septicum isolates were assayed for extracellular DNase activity. All of the C. septicum isolates tested produced greater DNase activity than did the other DNase-producing clostridial isolates tested. The molecular weight of the DNase of C. septicum was determined to be approximately 45,000. DNase is a major extracellular protein produced by this organism.
