Murine gammaherpesvirus (MHV-68) is well established as a small animal model for the study of gammaherpesviruses. The MHV-68 genome contains an open reading frame (ORF74) that has significant sequence homology with mammalian G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) and the GPCR from the related Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV). Here we show that(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is associated with pathological assembly states of amyloid-β protein (Aβ). Aβ-related synaptotoxicity can be blocked by anti-prion protein (PrP) antibodies, potentially allowing therapeutic targeting of this aspect of AD neuropathogenesis. Here, we show that intravascular administration of a high-affinity humanized anti-PrP antibody(More)
