    The article describes the analysis of prion protein (PrP) gene (PRNP) variation in Moroccan sheep breeds to determine its susceptibility to scrapie. In the study, the amino acid variations were analyzed at codon 136, 154 and 171, which have been shown to be particularly important in genetic...

    Susceptibility to natural scrapie in sheep is associated with polymorphisms at codons 136, 154 and 171 of the prion protein (PrP) gene. To assess the risk of scrapie in sheep raised in China, DNA from 30 sheep of two breeds was isolated, amplified and sequenced for the PrP gene. The ovine PrP...

    Scrapie is a prion disease affecting sheep and goats. Susceptibility to this neurodegenerative disease shows polygenic variance. The involvement of the laminin receptor (LRP/LR) in the metabolism and propagation of prions has previously been demonstrated. In the present work, the ovine laminin...

    Background. Sheep with prion protein (PrP) gene polymorphisms QQ171 and RQ171 were shown to be susceptible to the prion causing L-type bovine spongiform encephalopathy (L-BSE), although RQ171 sheep specifically propagated a distinctive prion molecular phenotype in their brains, characterized by...

    Ovine scrapie is considered a neurodegenerative disease characterized by the accumulation of an abnormal, protease-resistant isoform of PrP. The polymorphisms at codons 136, 154, and 171 are associated with susceptibility to scrapie. In order to detect the existing polymorphisms at the 3 codons...
