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 cancer therapy and laser physics to developing proteins that can solve humankind’s chemical problems. The work of the 2018 Nobel Laureates also included combating war crimes, as well as integrating innovation and climate with economic growth. Find out more.
