Ranpirnase: amphibian ribonuclease A, P-30 protein-alfacell.

Drugs in R&D. 2007;8(2):120-4. [Link] Abstract Ranpirnase [Onconase] is an amphibian oocyte/early embryo ribonuclease (RNase) of 105 amino acids in length that is capable of controlling tumour growth by degrading RNA within cancer cells, resulting in inhibition of protein synthesis and arresting mitosis in G(1 )phase. It represents the first successful isolation, purification and characterisation […]
