Ricin, abrin, modeccin, gelonin andMomordica charantia inhibitor, as well as crude extracts ofBryonia dioica seeds and ofDianthus caryophyllus leaves, each inhibit protein synthesis in a rabbit reticulocyte lysate and reduce local lesion production by tobacco mosaic virus, thus resembling the effects of the pokeweed antiviral peptide.
