New book on prion diseases from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press) 'Prion Diseases' covers the progress that has recently been made in our understanding of the pathophysiology of prion diseases, as well as ongoing efforts to develop effective therapeutics. The contributors discuss how proteins such as tau, islet amyloid polypeptide, andα-synuclein adopt alternative shapes that lead them to aggregate, resulting in cellular degeneration. This volume is therefore useful for all biomedical scientists and physicians wishing to understand and treat this group of devastating disorders. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
