Product Description
Ricin is a highly toxic molecule that is refined from Castor Beans. It consists of two separate parts. Part A destroys the ribosomes that convert RNA messages into Proteins. In this way a single molecule of Part A can kill an entire cell. Part B allows the entry of Part A into the cell by binding to carbohydrates of the surface of the cell.

Original Source data:
Crystallographic refinement of ricin to 2.5 A.
