Phenotypic Description

The octameric repeat region of the mouse prion protein was replaced with the hexameric repeat region from the domestic chicken. The mice express mouse PrP at wild-type levels with correct membrane location and orientation but have an altered metal binding region. The mice have been generated to get a better understanding of prion diseases such as CJD in humans.
