Pathogenesis of mouse scrapie: patterns of agent replication in different parts of the CNS following intraperitoneal infection.

Abstract

The dynamics of agent replication were studied at 8 levels of spinal cord and in 9 areas of brain of mice infected intraperitoneally with the 139A strain of scrapie agent. Replication in the CNS was first detectable at 2 levels of spinal cord between thoracic vertebrae 4 and 9. The onset of replication was progressively delayed by up to 4 weeks at… (More)
