Ribosome-inactivating Proteins (RIPs) are a group of cytotoxin proteins that usually contain a RNA N-glycosidase domain, which irreversibly inactivates ribosome, thus inhibiting protein synthesis. During the past 14 years (1990-2004), the studies conducted in our laboratory had been focusing on the structure and enzymatic mechanism of several PIPs. Herein… (More)
