Mutant prion protein could help reveal neurodegenerative disease mechanisms

For the first time, scientists have isolated a mutated prion protein that can multiply in the lab but not in living animals, according to a study. The mutant prion provides new insights into the mechanisms that make prions infectious, say researchers….
