Laminin-induced PC-12 cell differentiation is inhibited following laser inactivation of cellular prion protein.

Abstract

Prions, the etiological agents for infectious degenerative encephalopathies, act by inducing structural modifications in the cellular prion protein (PrPc). Recently, we demonstrated that PrPc binds laminin (LN) and that this interaction is important for the neuritogenesis of cultured hippocampal neurons. Here we have used the PC-12 cell model to explore the… (More)
