Accepted name: rRNA N-glycosylase
Reaction: Hydrolysis of the N-glycosylic bond at A-4324 in 28S rRNA from rat ribosomes
Other name(s): ribosomal ribonucleate N-glycosidase; nigrin b; RNA N-glycosidase; rRNA N-glycosidase; ricin; momorcochin-S; Mirabilis antiviral protein; momorcochin-S; gelonin; saporins
Systematic name: rRNA N-glycohydrolase
Comments: Ricin A-chain and related toxins show this activity. Naked rRNA is attacked more slowly than rRNA in intact ribosomes. Naked rRNA from Escherichia coli is cleaved at a corresponding position.
