Description
A healthy neuron normally contains only the PrPC conformation of the prion protein. The abnormal PrPSc conformation catalyzes the conversion of PrPC proteins into PrPSc proteins. Over time, the amount of PrPSc proteins reaches high levels, thereby causing the symptoms of prion diseases.
