Abstract The rate of inhibition of protein synthesis and ribosome-dependent GTPase activity by abrin and ricin was determined. Ribosomes were treated with toxin A-chains for increasing periods of time and they assayed for their ability to synthesize polyphenylalanine and hydrolyze GTP. The rate of inhibition of GTPase activity of the 60S subunit derived 8S ribonucleoprotein complex was also determined. Although the degree of maximal inhibition of protein synthesis and GTPase activity was… CONTINUE READING
