Description, distribution, activity and phylogenetic relationship of ribosome-inactivating proteins in plants, fungi and bacteria.
Ribosome-Inactivating Proteins (RIPs) are enzymes that trigger the catalytic inactivation of ribosomes and other substrates. They are present in a large number of plants and have been found also inExpand

2.8‐Å crystal structure of a nontoxic type‐II ribosome‐inactivating protein, ebulin l
Ebulin l is a type‐II ribosome‐inactivating protein (RIP) isolated from the leaves of Sambucus ebulus L. As with other type‐II RIP, ebulin is a disulfide‐linked heterodimer composed of a toxic AExpand

Enzymatic activity of toxic and non‐toxic type 2 ribosome‐inactivating proteins
Ribosome‐inactivating proteins (RIPs) display adenine polynucleotide glycosylase activity on different nucleic acid substrates, which at the ribosomal level is responsible for the arrest of proteinExpand

Elderberry (Sambucus nigra) bark contains two structurally different Neu5Ac(alpha2,6)Gal/GalNAc-binding type 2 ribosome-inactivating proteins.
A second NeuAc(alpha2,6)Gal/GalNAc binding type 2 ribosome-inactivating protein (RIP), called SNAI' has been isolated from elderberry (Sambucus nigra) bark. SNAI' is a minor bark protein whichExpand

Constitutive and inducible type 1 ribosome‐inactivating proteins (RIPs) in elderberry (Sambucus nigra L.)
Two novel highly basic type 1 (single chain) ribosome‐inactivating proteins (RIPs) with N‐glycosidase activity have been found in elderberries (the fruits of Sambucus nigra L.). Mass spectrometry ofExpand

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

Ebulin 1, a nontoxic novel type 2 ribosome-inactivating protein from Sambucus ebulus L. leaves.
A novel type 2 ribosome-inactivating protein (RIP) that we named ebulin 1 has been isolated from leaves of Sambucus ebulus L. (Caprifoliaceae). In vitro ebulin 1 strongly inhibited protein synthesisExpand

Distribution and properties of major ribosome-inactivating proteins (28 S rRNA N-glycosidases) of the plant Saponaria officinalis L. (Caryophyllaceae).
We have studied the distribution of the protein synthesis inhibitory activity in the tissues of Saponaria officinalis L. (Caryophyllaceae). Seven major saporins, ribosome-inactivating proteins, wereExpand

Targeting cancer cells with transferrin conjugates containing the non-toxic type 2 ribosome-inactivating proteins nigrin b or ebulin l.
Nigrin b and ebulin l are type 2 ribosome-inactivating proteins (RIPs) with 10(4) times less cellular and in vivo toxicity than ricin that are currently being considered for the construction ofExpand
