Prions are misfolded protein species known to cause neurodegeneration in vivo called transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), a group of progressive encephalopathies that affect the brain and nervous system of animals and humans. Mental and physical abilities deteriorate and holes appear in the cortex giving the brain tissue a sponge-like-appearance. The disorders cause a steadily worsening impairment of brain function:
Examples include classic Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, the new variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (nvCJD, a human disorder thought to be induced by the consumption of bovine meat of animals with spongiform encephalopathy - BSE), Gerstmann–Sträussler–Scheinker syndrome, fatal familial insomnia and Kuru.
SynAging is using prion-protein-derived oligomer preparations on primary neuronal cultures to model prion disease and induce neurodegeneration and neuronal death.
This enables mechanistic studies of prion-induced neurodegeneration in vitro.
Clients can study their active substances for the ability to prevent or revert prion-derived neurotoxicity in SynAgings assays.
This model of PrP-derived low number oligomers is supported by key publications:
