Prions rapidly 'remodel' good protein into bad, Brown study shows

aracteristics. This survival supports the theory that prions have endured through evolution because shape-shifting is advantageous, allowing cells to avoid stress by rapidly adjusting to a new environment.

"Our studies provide some insight into how the appearance of a misfolded protein a rare event can lead to devastating neurological diseases," said Serio. "Just a small amount of prion-state protein can rapidly convert healthy protein into a pathogenic form."
