Phenotypic Similarity of Transmissible Mink Encephalopathy in Cattle and L-type Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy in a Mouse Model
Figure 2. Glycoforms proportions (means ± standard deviations) of protease-resistant prion protein detected by using Sha31 antibody. A) Cattle transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs). B) First passage of L-type and typical bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) into TgOvPrP4 mice. C) First passage of transmissible mink encephalopathy (TME) in cattle and L-type BSE into TgOvPrP4 mice. D) Second passage of TME in cattle and L-type BSE into TgOvPrP4 mice. Results from 3 individual mice from each experimental group are shown. Typical BSE in red, H-type BSE in yellow, L-type BSE in green, and TME-in-cattle in blue.
