Prion Diseases

Edited by Stanley B. Prusiner

A Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press Publication

Infectious proteins called prions are responsible for the devastating transmissible spongioform encephalopathy Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Prions are misfolded versions of proteins that replicate by converting their normal cellular counterparts into new prions and may play an important role in numerous other conditions, including Alzheimer and Parkinson's disease.
