    Mutat Res 488:39-64. 2001
    ..The prion model also puts in doubt the notion that cloned animals are genetically identical to their genome donors, and suggests that genome sequence would not provide a complete information about the genetic makeup of an organism...

    Mol Cell Biol 21:4656-69. 2001
    ..Thus, our data confirm that the primary function of Hsp104 in prion propagation is to disassemble prion aggregates and generate the small prion seeds that initiate new rounds of prion propagation (possibly assisted by Hsp70-Ssa)...

    EMBO J 20:6683-91. 2001
    ..Our results shed light on the mechanisms determining the differences between transmissible prions and non-transmissible protein aggregates...

    Genetics 153:81-94. 1999
    ..We hypothesize that Sup35N is involved in regulatory interactions with intracellular structural networks, and [PSI] prion may be formed as a by-product of this process...

    ..This implies that prion induction by protein overproduction does not require strict correspondence of the 'inducer' and 'inducee' sequences, and can overcome the 'species barrier'...
