Use of site-directed mutagenesis to study the biological activity of ricin in mammalian cells Adip Pillai, Amanda Jetzt and Wendie Cohick Ricin is a ribosome-inactivating cytotoxic protein easily derived from the castor bean plant and considered to be a possible bioterror agent classified as a level B biothreat. Rici...
- whereRU: Aresty Poster [#86] - Screen for Ricin A-chain mutants that have altered ribosome interaction by Aresty Posters 2009
Screen for Ricin A-chain mutants that have altered interactions with ribosomal stalk proteins. Contacts: Maria Montano firstname.lastname@example.org Abstract: Ricin, from the castor bean Ricinus communis, is a plant toxin and one of the most potent, lethal substances known. Ricin inhibits protein synthesis within a c...
