    Prion proteins (PrPs) are difficult to crystallize, probably due to their inherent flexibility. Several PrPs structures have been solved by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques; however, only three structures were solved by X-ray crystallography. Here we combined in-situ proteolysis with...
