3. In the cell body of the neuron, PrPSc encounters normal PrPc-proteins and triggers their conversion into new PrPSc. In other words, the harmful PrPSc when interacting with the innocuos PrPc will force the normal PrPc-molecules to adopt the shape of PrPSc in a chain reaction-like process.
Their work and discoveries range from how cells adapt to changes in levels of oxygen to our ability to fight global poverty.
