Is there a role for cellular prion protein in intrathymic T cell differentiation and migration?


The cellular prion protein (PrP(C)) is expressed in the nervous and immune systems. Functionally, PrP(C) has been suggested to participate in neuron survival, neuritogenesis and T lymphocyte activation. Moreover, PrP(C) interaction with laminin influences neuronal adhesion and neurite extension. Nevertheless, so far the physiological role of PrP(C) has not… (More)
