Lectinology

Biographic Information

Under prof. R. Kobert`s supervision Peter Hermann Stillmark (1860 – 1923) in 1888 completed his doctoral thesis “ Ueber Ricin, ein giftiges Ferment aus den Samen von Ricinus comm. L. und einigen anderen Euphorbiaceen”. P. H. Stillmark succeeded in isolating a poisonous protein component, toxine, from castor beans which he named ricin. That event is internationally recognised as the birtday of a new branch of science called lectinology.
