Neural Stem Cell Differentiation and Prion Infection
Authors:  Yoshifumi Iwamaru, Takato Takenouchi and Hiroshi Kitani, date: 03/20/2014, view: 4964, Q&A: 0
Prion diseases are transmissible, fatal, neurodegenerative diseases in human and animals. The molecular basis of neurodegeneration in prion diseases is largely unclear. Developing a cellular model capable of monitoring prion-induced cytotoxicity ...
