Comparative sequence analysis, in vitro expression and biosynthesis of mouse PrP.

Abstract

A number of studies have indicated that an endogenous brain protein, PrP, is associated with transmissible agents causing spongiform encephalopathies such as scrapie, kuru, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. It has been proposed that PrP derived from scrapie brain is the scrapie agent itself. To test directly whether the PrP mRNA in scrapie brain tissue can… (More)
