Conversion of prion protein (PrP) to an altered conformer, the scrapie PrP (PrPSc), is a critical step in the development of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies. Both Cu(II) and nucleic acid molecules have been implicated in this conversion. Full-length PrP can bind up to six copper ions; four Cu(II) binding sites are located in the octarepeat domain(More)
Different capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers (CMUTs) element geometries and fabrication techniques have been proposed through the years though the questions of which element geometry suits each application best as well as further geometrical, array and design parameter optimization techniques still remain open. This paper proposes a thorough(More)
