    • Variation in the prion protein gene (PRNP) sequence of wild deer in Great Britain and mainland Europe 

      Robinson, Amy L; Williamson, Helen; Guere Calderon, Mariella Evelyn; Tharaldsen, Helene; Baker, Karis; Smith, Stephanie L; Perez-Espona, Silvia; Krojerova-Prokesova, Jarmila; Pemberton, Josephine M.; Goldmann, Wilfred; Houston, Fiona (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Susceptibility to prion diseases is largely determined by the sequence of the prion protein gene (PRNP), which encodes the prion protein (PrP). The recent emergence of chronic wasting disease (CWD) in Europe has highlighted ...
