Abstract

Two classes of ricin cDNA clones have been identified and sequenced. The cDNA clone pBL-1 closely matches in nucleotide sequence the ricin genomic clone pAKG previously described by Halling et al., 1985 (Nucl. Acids Res. 13:8019). A second group of cDNA clones, represented by pBL-3, encode a hybrid protein (ricin E), having a ricin-like A chain and N-terminal half of the B chain and an RCA (Ricinus communis agglutinin)-like C-terminal half of the B chain.
