Expression of PrP(C) in the rat brain and characterization of a subset of cortical neurons.

Abstract

The cellular prion protein (PrP(C)) is a membrane-bound glycoprotein mainly present in the CNS. The scrapie prion protein (PrP(Sc)) is an isoform of PrP(C), and it is responsible for transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), a group of neurodegenerative diseases affecting both humans and animals.
