Mechanisms of prion-induced modifications in membrane transport properties: Implications for signal transduction and neurotoxicity
Prion-related encephalopathies are associated with the conversion of a normal cellular isoform of prion protein (PrPc) to an abnormal pathologic scrapie isoform (PrPSc). The conversion of this single polypeptide chain involves a reduction in the α-helice
