Disease: prion disease (PMID:14562104)
Dysfunction type: expression
Description: Here we report that stoichiometric transformation of PrP(C) to PrPres in vitro requires specific RNA molecules.In other words,host-encoded stimulatory rna molecules may have a role in the pathogenesis of prion disease.
Function Mechanism: NA (PMID:14562104)
Biological Process: pathogenic process
