Prions may play crucial role in evolution.

...pecifically, Sup35 recognizes special signals that tell the entire protein production machinery to stop when it is supposed to stop. Sup35 doesn't function in its prion state. As a result, the protein production machinery runs right through the "stop signs." This means that usually silent regions of th...
