A two population model of prion transport through a tunnelling nanotube.


This article develops a two prion population model that simulates prion trafficking between an infected dendritic cell and a neuron. The situation when the two cells are connected by a tunnelling nanotube (TNT) is simulated. Two mechanisms of prion transport are considered: lateral diffusion in the TNT membrane and active actin-dependent transport inside… (More)
