Recombinant PrPSc shares structural features with brain-derived PrPSc: Insights from limited proteolysis
(Plos Pathogens, 2018-01-31)
Very solid evidence suggests that the core of full length PrPSc is a 4-rung β-solenoid, and that individual PrPSc subunits stack to form amyloid fibers. We recently used limited proteolysis to map the β-strands and connecting ...
