Background Information

Prion protein (PRNP) is a ubiquitous membrane glycoprotein whose abnormal self-replicating, misfolded form is widely believed to cause several central nervous system disorders, collectively known as Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSE). Prion diseases are TSEs, attributed to conformational conversion of the cellular prion protein (PrPC) into an abnormal conformer that accumulates in the brain. The two isoforms, PrPC and PrPS, have the same primary amino acid sequence and only differ in conformation. While PrPC is composed of 42% α-helix and only 3% β-sheet, PrPSc is composed of 30% α-helix and 43% β-sheet. PrPC converts to its pathogenic isoform when the region corresponding to the residues 108-144 fold into β-sheets. PrPC is very soluble in detergents and easily digested by proteases while the PrPSc is insoluble in detergents and resistant to protease digestion. Prion diseases exist in infectious, sporadic, and genetic forms.


Storage Instructions All the reagents are stored at 2-8°C. The kit is stable for 6 months from the date of receipt.
