Clostridial neurotoxins, including botulinum and tetanus neurotoxins, are among the deadliest known bacterial toxins. Until recently, the horizontal mobility of this toxin gene family appeared to be limited to the genusClostridiumWe report here the closed genome sequence ofChryseobacterium piperi, a Gram-negative bacterium containing coding sequences with homology to clostridial neurotoxin family proteins.
