  • A type II ribosome-inactivating protein (RIP) was isolated from the bark tissue of Japanese elderberry (Sambucus sieboldiana) and named sieboldin-b. Sieboldin-b is a heterodimeric protein consisting of 27- and 33-kDa subunits and showed strong ribosome-inactivating activity in vitro but did not show in vivo toxicity. The amino acid sequence of sieboldin-b deduced from the structure of the cDNA showed that both subunits of sieboldin-b are encoded on a single precursor polypeptide. Sieboldin-b… CONTINUE READING
