ricin, RTA subunit
Antibodies have been purified by affinity chromatography on Protein G from tissue culture supernatant.
Ricin detection limit is 5 ng/ml, signal to noise ratio is 15-50 up to 100 ng/ml
Suggested protocol can be found here.
Detected epitope is located on the surface of RTA subunit not accssible in intact ricin molecule. This antibody does not cross-react to whole ricin molecule.
Ricin is a protein found in castor bean (Ricinus communis) acting as protein synthesis inhibitor. It is a toxin involved in plant defence. A chain of ricin can inactivate few thousands of ribosomes per minute. B chain facilitates the entry of A chain into the cell.
