"Prions: the hot Biology of Proteins offers a well-organized evaluate of what's shortly identified approximately prion-related ailments. This accomplished paintings stories the medical signs, epidemiology, and neuropathology of the disorder. It makes a speciality of proof aiding the concept that TSEs end result from a completely novel ailment mechanism, concerning transmission by way of replication of the misfolding of a unmarried protein in the absence of nucleic acids. Following this speculation, the publication examines the constitution, conversion, and mechanism of prion propagation and info its mobile biology. It explores the transmission of the disorder, discusses the demanding situations concerned with analysis, and considers many of the healing avenues which are almost immediately being explored."--BOOK JACKET.
