The prion protein (PrP) is a cell-surface Cu(2+)-binding glycoprotein that when misfolded is responsible for a number of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies. Full-length PrP-(23-231) and constructs in which the octarepeat region has been removed, or His(95) and His(110) is replaced by alanine residues, have been used to elucidate the order and mode of Cu(2+) coordination to PrP-(23-231). We have built on our understanding of the appearance of visible CD spectra and EPR for various PrP… CONTINUE READING
