Structural facets of disease-linked human prion protein mutants: a molecular dynamic study.


Prion propagation in transmissible spongiform encephalopathies involves the conversion of the cellular prion protein, PrPC, into the pathogenic conformer PrPSc. Human familial forms of the disease are linked to specific mutations in the PrP gene, PRNP, and include Gerstmann-Strussler-Scheinker syndrome (GSS), familial Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (fCJD), and… (More)
