  1. pmc Anti-idiotypic antibodies: a new approach in prion research
    Anja Colja Venturini
    Department for Production of Diagnostic Reagents and Research, Blood Transfusion Centre of Slovenia, Ljubljana, Slovenia
    BMC Immunol 10:16. 2009
    ..Different ways to induce anti-idiotypic responses were studied in mice and chickens using various forms of V5B2, a PrPSc-specific monoclonal antibody we have described previously...

    Mara Bresjanac
    Laboratory for Neuronal Plasticity and Regeneration, Institute of Pathophysiology, University of Ljubljana, SI 1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia
    J Neurosci 23:8029-33. 2003
    ..Our results show that FDDNP reliably identifies all prion plaques, including small cluster-plaques in vCJD. This finding may open new in vivo diagnostic possibilities for vCJD...
  3. ncbi request reprint The 2,6-disubstituted naphthalene derivative FDDNP labeling reliably predicts Congo red birefringence of protein deposits in brain sections of selected human neurodegenerative diseases
    Lojze M Smid
    Laboratory for Neural Plasticity and Regeneration, Institute of Pathophysiology, University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia
    Brain Pathol 16:124-30. 2006
    ..Our findings may be of significant value for the detection of neuropathological aggregates with [F-18]FDDNP in some of these disorders in the living brain of human subjects...

    Iva Hafner-Bratkovic
    Department of Biotechnology, National Institute of Chemistry, School of Medicine, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia
    J Neurochem 104:1553-64. 2008
    ..We therefore show that the partially unfolded structural intermediate of the PrP can be targeted by non-toxic compound of natural origin...
  5. doi request reprint Curcumin labeling of neuronal fibrillar tau inclusions in human brain samples
    Nina Mohorko
    Laboratory of Neural Plasticity and Regeneration, Institute of Pathophysiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia
    J Neuropathol Exp Neurol 69:405-14. 2010
    ..These results provide the basis for potential future applications of CCM binding of tau aggregates in diagnostic pathology and in vivo...

    Vladka Curin Serbec
    Blood Transfusion Center of Slovenia, Slajmerjeva 6, Ljubljana, Slovenia
    J Biol Chem 279:3694-8. 2004
    ..The PrP(Sc)-specific epitope is disrupted by denaturation. We conclude that the C-terminal part of PrP in disease-associated PrP(Sc) aggregates forms a structural epitope whose conformation is distinct from that of PrP(C)...
