Spontaneous Generation of Infectious Prion Disease in Transgenic Mice
Figure 5. . . Immunochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded tissue blots of representative coronal sections of the hippocampus, showing deposition patterns of abnormal isoform of host-encoded prion protein in brains from BoPrP-Tg110 mice infected with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE)-C (A), 113L-BSE (B), BSE-H (C), and BSE-L (D) prions. BoPrP, bovine prion protein; 113L, leucine substitution at codon 113. Monoclonal antibody Sha31 stained by using the procedure of Andréoletti et al. (29). Original magnifications ×20.
