Simplified ultrasensitive prion detection by recombinant PrP conversion with shaking

Abstract

To the editor: A key problem in managing prion diseases is the lack of a rapid, practical assay for prions (infectivity) at low-level infectious, or sub-infectious, amounts. Prion diseases involve the accumulation of a pathological, typically protease-resistant form of prion protein, termed PrPSc, which appears to propagate itself in infected hosts by… (More)
