A molecular basis for transmissible spongiform encephalopathy agent strain differences

D. McKenzie, Jason C. Bartz, J. Aiken

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Distinct strains of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy agents differ with respect to both their biological and physicochemical properties. These strain differences may be due to variability in the conformation of the disease-specific isoform of the priori protein.
