Microenvironment of cysteine 242 in type-1 ribosome-inactivating protein from iris.


IRIP is a type-1 ribosome-inactivating protein isolated from the bulbs of Iris hollandica. It is one of the few type-1 RIPs that contain Cys residue(s) in their primary sequence. IRIP contains a single Cys residue at position 242. Although IRIP is thought to be a monomeric protein, SDS-PAGE indicates that part of the IRIP molecules can exist as disulphide… (More)
