    Genetic factors are implicated in the aetiology of sporadic late-onset neurodegenerative diseases. Whether these genetic variants are predominantly common or rare, and how multiple genetic factors interact with each other to cause disease is poorly understood. Inherited prion diseases are highly...

    The prion protein gene Prnp encodes PrP[sup Sc] , the major structural component of prions, infectious pathogens causing a number of disorders including scrapie and bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). Missense mutations in the human Prnp gene, PRNP, cause inherited prion diseases such as...
