Abstract

The prion protein is believed to be the causative agent of a host of fatal neurodegenerative diseases, including chronic wasting disease and scrapie. The prion protein is shed into the environment and is strongly bound to soil. Evidence suggests that binding to soil can influence the biologic properties of the prion protein, including prion replication and infectivity. The physicochemical properties of soil influence this behavior, and some evidence suggests that local soil type may play a role in prion disease transmission in the environment.
