Prion degradation in soil: possible role of microbial enzymes stimulated by the decomposition of buried carcasses.

Abstract

This study is part of a European project focused on understanding the biotic and abiotic mechanisms involved in the retention and dissemination of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE) infectivity in soil in order to propose practical recommendations to limit environmental contamination. A 1-year field experiment was conducted with lamb carcasses… (More)
