Inhibition of PrPSc formation by lentiviral gene transfer of PrP containing dominant negative mutations.

Abstract

Currently, there is no treatment to cure transmissible spongiform encephalopathies. By taking advantage of the 'prion-resistant' polymorphisms Q171R and E219K that naturally exist in sheep and humans, respectively, we have evaluated a therapeutic approach of lentiviral gene transfer. Here, we show that VSV-G (vesicular stomatitis virus G glycoprotein… (More)
