Elderberry (Sambucus nigra L.) seed proteins inhibit protein synthesis and display strong immunoreactivity with rabbit polyclonal antibodies raised against the type 2 ribosome-inactivating protein nigrin b



Elderberry (Sambucus nigra L.) seed proteins inhibit protein synthesis and display strong immunoreactivity with rabbit polyclonal antibodies raised against the type 2 ribosome-inactivating protein nigrin b



Journal of Experimental Botany 45(273): 513-516



Affinity chromatography-purified elderberry (Sambucus nigra L.) seed proteins strongly inhibited protein synthesis and displayed the 28S rRNA N-glycosidase activity characteristic of all types of ribosome-inactivating proteins (RIPs). Western blot analysis revealed several proteins that reacted with antibodies raised against the novel non-toxic type 2 ribosome-inactivating protein nigrin b isolated from elder bark, thus indicating the presence of a new type 2 RIP.
