Abstract

Sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD) is the most common prion disease in humans and has been iatrogenically transmitted through corneal graft transplantation. Approximately 40% of sCJD patients develop visual or oculomotor symptoms and may seek ophthalmological consultation. Here w...read more

Molecular diagnostic strategies in prion disease

Prion diseases are fatal neurodegenerative and infectious disorders characterized by structural transition of the host-encoded cellular prion protein into the aberrantly folded pathologic isoform of the protein. Here is the latest research on molecular diagnostic strategies for prion diseases.

ALS: Prions

Prions are misfolded proteins which characterize several fatal neurodegenerative diseases. Prion-like mechanisms are associated with the pathogenesis of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease

Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease is a fatal neurodegenerative disease caused due to aggregation and accumulation of misfolded prion proteins. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Vision Neuroscience

Visual Neuroscience describes the visual system of the human body and the brain's visual cortex. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to vision neuroscience.

Retinal Development: Genetics

This feed focuses on genetic, epigenetic, and transcriptomic processes pertaining to retinal development and aging.

Prion Disease: Cholesterol

The Prion Disease: Cholesterol feed describes the role cholesterol plays in the conversion and transmission of prion. Discover the latest research on the role of cholesterol in prion disease here.

Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker Disease

Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker disease is a rare neurodegenerative disorder caused by prions and characterized by symptoms associated with prion-associated diseases. Here is the latest research.

Retinal Development And Aging: Genetics

This feed focuses on genetic, epigenetic, and transcriptomic processes pertaining to retinal development and aging. Here is the latest research.

Formation of Synapses and Circuits

Synapses are crucial for the transmission of information within neural circuits. These specialized intercellular junctions are the basis for the formation of complex networks. Formation of these synapses involve numerous steps that are essential for transmission of information. Here is the latest research on formation of synapses and circuits.

Synaptic Junctions

Synaptic or neuronal junctions are the site of transmission of electrical nerve impulses between neurons or between neurons and effector cells. Discover the latest research on synaptic junctions here.

Prion Disease

Prion diseases or transmissible spongiform encephalopathies are rare progressive neurogenerative diseases caused by misfolded prion proteins. Here is the latest research in this domain.

Drug-Induced Diseases

Drug-induced diseases (DID) also called as iatrogenic diseases. Most of these DIDs are largely preventable, if strict vigilance and proper periodic clinical and diagnostic monitoring are undertaken

Mechanisms of Prion Propagation

Prions are misfolded proteins which characterize several fatal neurodegenerative diseases. Whilst some key players seem to have been identified so far, the mechanisms that underlie prion propagation to the brain are still not fully understood. Here is the latest research pertaining to mechanisms of prion propagation.

Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy is a neurodegenerative disease belonging to the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, a group of diseases including sheep scrapie and human Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Here is the latest research.

Prion Neurodegeneration

Prion diseases are fatal, transmissible, neurodegenerative diseases caused by the misfolding of the prion protein (prp). Here is the latest research on prion diseases.
