Ribosome-inactivating proteins are structurally divided into two main groups: type 1 proteins comprise a single A-chain with enzymatic activity, and type 2 proteins comprise an A-chain linked to a lectin B-chain through a disulphide bond, the most well-known type 2 protein being ricin (Stirpe and Battelli 2006).
