Caption

A molecular model of a human prion protein. Prions are infections proteins responsible for neurological diseases such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (a.k.a. mad cow disease) by causing existing proteins to misfold into an amyloid form of tightly packed beta sheets. When this occurs in the brain, neural tissue is destroyed and leads to the death of the host.
