Upstream AUGs modulate prion protein translation in vitro.

Abstract

The level of expression of the host PrP gene (PRNP) has been shown to affect the progression to a disease, transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE). In order to define sequences that are responsible for translation ofPRNPmRNA we have investigated a region comprising its 5'-leader sequence. Most remarkable, it consists of an almost identical Kozak mRNA… (More)
