Transgenic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) mice, expressing the mouse PrP (show C4BPA ELISA Kits) (moPrP) homolog of human PrP (show C4BPA ELISA Kits) D178N/V129 (moPrP D177N/V128), closely reproduce essential features of CJD. The mutant PrPs (show MSMB ELISA Kits) expressed in these mice are misfolded but unable to self-replicate. They accumulate in different compartments of the neuronal secretory pathway, impairing the membrane delivery of ion channels essential for neuronal function.
Identified are several nuclear PrP(c) partners, which comprise gamma-catenin (show JUP ELISA Kits), one of its desmosomal partners, beta-catenin (show CTNNB1 ELISA Kits) and TCF7L2 (show TCF7L2 ELISA Kits), the main effectors of the canonical Wnt (show WNT2 ELISA Kits) pathway, and YAP (show YAP1 ELISA Kits), one effector of the Hippo pathway.

The results indicate that certain negative feedback response elements are located in the 5' flanking region and intron1 of the PRNP gene, suggesting that regulation by transcription factors such as Sp1 (show SP1 ELISA Kits) and RP58 (show ZNF238 ELISA Kits) may contribute to the negative feedback mechanism of PRNP.
allele and haplotype segregation at the polymorphic sites within the promoter (23indel) and intron 1 (12indel) regions of the PRNP
PRNP gene variation in Pakistani cattle and buffaloes.
A significant relation between the investigated PRNP indel polymorphisms (23 and 12 bp indels), and susceptibility of Polish Holstein-Friesian cattle to classical bovine spongiform encephalopathy, is reported.
fibrils formed by the rabbit protein contain less beta-sheet structure and more alpha-helix structure than those formed by the proteins from human and cow
these results identify a novel PrP(C)-interacting protein KCTD1 (show KCTD1 ELISA Kits) and suggest a new approach to investigating the unidentified physiological cellular function of PrP(C).

Data show the presence of PrP(Sc) in muscle and central nervous system of rhesus monkeys experimentally infected with vCJD.
PrP(c) is expressed in all digestive regions of the rat, monkey, and cow; PrP(c) expressing cells appeared scattered throughout the epithelium of fundic and pyloric glands as well as in intestinal villi and crypts.
fibrils formed by the rabbit protein contain less beta-sheet structure and more alpha-helix structure than those formed by the proteins from human and cow; strong inhibition of fibrillization of the rabbit PrP by the crowded physiological environment and the absence of such a protease-resistant fragment for the rabbit protein could be why rabbits are resistant to prion diseases
Different overall sensitivities of prion protein toward urea denaturation occurs with stabilities in the following species order: hamster = mouse < rabbit < bovine prion protein
amyloid and oxidative stress-related disease proteins like prion protein are increased in expression and form localized accumulations in diabetic muscle in this rabbit model of diabetes.

the PRNP octapeptide repeat domain was necessary to promote exosome secretion and to impair the formation of the CAV1-dependent ATG12-ATG5 cytoplasmic complex that drives autophagosome formation.
Transgenic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) mice, expressing the mouse PrP (moPrP) homolog of human PrP D178N/V129 (moPrP D177N/V128), closely reproduce essential features of CJD. The mutant PrPs (show MSMB ELISA Kits) expressed in these mice are misfolded but unable to self-replicate. They accumulate in different compartments of the neuronal secretory pathway, impairing the membrane delivery of ion channels essential for neuronal function.
Association of human and mouse P-tau with amyloid PrPSc did not diminish survival time following prion infection in these mice. By analogy, human P-tau may not affect prion disease progression in humans.

Localization of fully posttranslationally modified Syrian golden hamster glycosylated PrPC is confirmed in the plasma membrane together with the posttranslational glycosylation pattern.
The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored glycoprotein that tends to aggregate into rod-like structures. The encoded protein contains a highly unstable region of five tandem octapeptide repeats. This gene is found on chromosome 20, approximately 20 kbp upstream of a gene which encodes a biochemically and structurally similar protein to the one encoded by this gene. Mutations in the repeat region as well as elsewhere in this gene have been associated with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, fatal familial insomnia, Gerstmann-Straussler disease, Huntington disease-like 1, and kuru. An overlapping open reading frame has been found for this gene that encodes a smaller, structurally unrelated protein, AltPrp. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
