Prion Protein, Volume 150, the latest volume in theProgress in Molecular Biology and Translational Scienceseries, focuses on Prion Protein, a protein that is considered to be the archetype of intrinsically disordered proteins. This updated volume includes comprehensive sections on a variety of timely topics, including Functions of Prion Protein, Copper and Prion protein, Cell Biology of Prion Protein, Structural Studies of Prion Proteins, Molecular Simulations on Wild Type and Mutant Prion Proteins, Genetics of Prion Protein, The Prion Concept and Synthetic Prions, and Transgenic Mouse Models.

As neurodegenerative diseases represent a health issue that is receiving increasing attention from the scientific community due to their social and economic impact, this series is an ideal resource for the latest research in molecular biology and translational science.

  • 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
