Non-toxic type 2 ribosome-inactivating proteins (RIPs) from Sambucus: occurrence, cellular and molecular activities and potential uses



Non-toxic type 2 ribosome-inactivating proteins (RIPs) from Sambucus: occurrence, cellular and molecular activities and potential uses



Cellular and Molecular Biology 49(4): 537-545



Ribosome-inactivating proteins (RIPs) are a family of enzymes that trigger the catalytic inactivation of ribosomes. The most known member of the family is the highly poisonous two-chain ricin isolated from Ricinus communis.
