Description:Caption:
This represents the fourth slide in a series highlighting the history, chemistry, and uses of ricin, a highly toxic poison made from castor beans. The slide, entitled, “Biochemical History”, states that in 1891, Dr. Paul Ehrlich “developed his theories of immunology using ricin, as an antigen in toxin-antitoxin reactions”. Ricin is now sometimes used as an agent of bioterrorism. This presentation is copyrighted by Dr. Jonathan Burstein, MD, Anthony J.
