  • This could also be a factor in many animal prion diseases where the time course is long, i.e. 2-5 years or more, and might allow higher extraneural infectivity in fat tissues [7], [33] - [35].

    undefined

  • Alternatively, the long asymptomatic survival time of tg44 mice might also contribute to high level extraneural infection.

    undefined

  • Possibly soluble anchorless PrP facilitates spread of infection from CNS to extraneural sites by blood, lymph or nerve-mediated transport.

    undefined

  • In this study extraneural infection was much higher in tg44 mice expressing anchorless PrP than in WT mice.

    undefined

  • Conclusions Using sensitive techniques, we identified extraneural deposition of PrPSc in spleen and muscle samples from approximately one third of patients who died with sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
