What is ricin toxin?
Ricin is a proteinic cytotoxin derived from the common castor bean, Ricinis communis. Recovered from the meal of castor beans in the castor oil making process, ricin toxin is perhaps 1,000 fold less toxin that botulinum toxin. Ricin is most toxic if inhaled and least toxic if swallowed. It has the potential to be used as a chemical warfare agent.
The toxin is a lectin called Ricin.
Ricin a toxin that cause multi organ failure and all kinds of problems. I had a friend that died from this toxin.
Ricin is reported to be one of the most deadly toxins known to man, and amounts in the micrograms can be fatal. It is theorised that if one molceule of ricin enters a cell in the body, it can shut down protein synthesis and destroy the cell entirely. The slightly worry prospect is that it does not seem very difficult to get hold of or produce naturally and if it was to enter say a… Read More
While the answer is debatable, the castor plant is high on the list. One castor bean can kill a person. The toxin ricin is derived from castor beans.
The Guiness Book of World Records lists the castor oil plant - a relatively common plant whose seeds contain the toxin ricin - as the world's deadliest plant.
What toxin is suspected when a patient has nausea vomiting problems with eye movement dry mouth sore throat difficulty swallowing no gag reflex and extreme weakness?
Ricin would be suspected in this case.
There is unfortunately no antidote for Ricin poisoning yet. We can however give supportive medical care to minimize symptoms, and hope for the best. The scientists are on the other hand working on this. An anti-toxin that protects against ricin poisoning is to move into production for the first time. It is the result of eight years of work by researchers at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory based at Porton Down in Wiltshire. The… Read More
Probably not. Ricin is toxic.
Because Ricin inactivates ribosomes, which assemble amino acids into proteins.
The production of ricin is a low-tech endeavor requiring little time or funding.
Hard to detect.but still it is possible. Doctors guess it by Symptom. There is a Special test designed to detect Ricin!
The active poison in the castor bean is ricin, a deadly water-soluble protein called a lectin.
Ricin is a toxic substance that comes from the pressed leaves of the castor beans. If the beans of the castor plant are eaten, it could cause harm from the ricin that is formed by the action. Ricin can cause harm through ingestion, inhalation or through contact with the skin.
Ricin is a poison derived from castor beans. It can be made from the waste material after processing (mashing) castor beans into castor oil. Although not as lethal as anthrax, ricin prevents cells from producing protein and can lead to death within 36 to 72 hours. In 2013, a Mississippi man, Paul Kevin Curtis, was arrested for sending ricin-contaminated letters to a Mississippi senator and President Obama.
It is a biomicrobial toxin.

I posted a link where a manufacturer offers his resin beads for you to see then and just in case you mispelled resin for ricin which is a poison from the castor bean I posted the wikipedia article on ricin
No, it is not a toxin.

no it's not considered a toxin.
The word perfect is inadequate here; the most dangerous toxin is the botulinum toxin from Clostridium botulinum.
Ricin sure fits the definition

Salmonella does not produce a toxin it invades the body though. Botulism does produce a toxin which can effect the nerves. Edit: Salmonella species are capable of producing a toxin, similar in structure and biological activity to the cholera toxin. Please don't post an answer unless you know it to be correct.

Most plants produce something that is toxic to something else. In general a plant would produce toxins to counteract attacks on it (animals, insects etc.). Some specialized eaters would simply digest poison unharmed, where as others who eat the poison would be so ill that they stopped eating or even died. The poison in plants vary. Some produce Nicotine (Tobacco) and others produce Caffeine (Coffee). As a paradox of these plants self defense methods, we… Read More
