The principal infectious and pathogenic agent in all prion disorders is a beta-sheet-rich isoform of the cellular prion protein (PrP(C)) termed PrP-scrapie (PrP(Sc)). Once initiated, PrP(Sc) is(More)
Corynebacterium diphtheriae pathogenesis depends on the production of toxin (Dtx), which in turn depends on a micromolar concentration of nitric oxide (NO)-mediated deactivation of DtxR (an(More)
One of the most intriguing disease-related mutations in human prion protein (PrP) is the Tyr to Stop codon substitution at position 145. This mutation results in a Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker-like(More)
There has been a marked expansion in the discovery of new antifungal peptides. This paper describes a novel dodecapeptide, H-Arg-Trp-Trp-Arg-D-Trp-D-Phe-Ile-D-Phe-His-Trp-Arg-Trp-NH(2), derived from(More)
