Clostridium perfringes toxins mnemonic

Clostridium perfringes produces an alpha toxin.
A for alpha
L for lecithin
P for phosphocholine
H for hemolytic

So alpha toxin is a lecithinase that splits lecithin into phosphocholine.
It is also hemolytic and membranolytic causing extensive myositis.
Alpha helps you remember other toxins it produces as well!  Namely, lecithinase;  proteinase; hemolysin; hyaluronidase. aLPHa remember?
That's all!
