IL2-ricin fusion toxin is selectively cytotoxic in vitro to IL2 receptor-bearing tumor cells.


Fusion toxins consist of peptide ligands linked through amide bonds to polypeptide toxins. The ligand directs the molecule to the surface of target cells and the toxin enters the cytosol and induces cell death. Ricin toxin is an excellent candidate for use in fusion toxins because of its extreme potency, the extensive knowledge of its atomic structure, and… (More)
