Open-pollinated [F.sub.3], [F.sub.4], and [F.sub.5] seeds of these crosses were screened for reduced levels of ricin and RC[A.sub.120] by means of a radial immunodiffusion (RID) assay (Pinkerton et al., 1999).
Following the return of each animal to preoperative weight (7 to 10 days), subjects from each group were removed from the home cage and IgG concentrations were determined through the use of radial immunodiffusion as outlined by Mancini, Carbonara, and Heremans (1965).
