Prion Protein, Volume 150,the latest volume in theProgress in Molecular Biology and Translational Science,focuses on Prion Protein.

Neurodegenerative diseases represent a health issue that in recent years has received increasing attention from the scientific community due to their social and economic impact. In particular, prion protein is considered to be the archetype of intrinsically disordered proteins that, upon misfolding, are prone to adopt aberrant conformations. Nevertheless, the molecular events underlying the onset and the progression of these diseases (misfolding, spreading, plaques formation, neuronal death) are still largely unknown.

  • Presents the latest volume in theProgress in Molecular Biology and Translational Scienceseries
  • Accessible to students and researcher alike
  • Written by leading authorities in the field of prion protein
