    Recently, an association between bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) and insertion/deletion (indel) polymorphisms in the bovine prion protein gene (PRNP) promoter region has been reported in German cattle. These PRNP polymorphisms cause changes in PRNP expression and are thought to play an...
