Prion topology and toxicity


Aguzzi, A; Steele, A D (2009). Prion topology and toxicity. Cell, 137(6):994-996.

Abstract

Inactivation of mahogunin, an E3 ubiquitin ligase, causes a spongiform encephalopathy resembling prion disease. Chakrabarti and Hegde (2009) now report that prion proteins with aberrant topologies inactivate mahogunin, providing a plausible explanation for certain aspects of prion pathology.
