Specifications

Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E
Ricin is a protein toxin that is readily produced from castor beans (Lectin Ricinus communis) which inhibits protein synthesis. Red blood cells agglutinate due to the presence of RCA (Ricinus communis agglutinin) a potent cytotoxin but a weak hemagglutinin. Ricin and RCA are synthesized in the endosperm cells of maturing seeds, and are stored in an organelle called the "protein body", a vacuolar compartment. When the mature seed germinates, the toxins are destroyed by hydrolysis within a few days.
