Clarify the mechanism of transformation of prions in the case of "mad cow disease""

Clarify the mechanism of transformation of prions in the case of Scientists at step moved in the direction of the fight against "mad cow disease and its human variant of the disease Creutzfeld-Jakob disease. For a long time, scientists could not understand how mutation and replication of pathogenic prion proteins. Unlike viruses, they do not contain DNA and RNA acids, which contain the genetic instructions for protein formation. However, as revealed in a study undertaken in Dartmoor medical school in new Hampshire (Dartmouth Medical School in New Hampshire) found that RNA still bound to the transformation of proteins in pathogenic form. However, scientists still have not found out what kind of RNA is a catalyst mutations. If this can be done, then after a short time you can expect a vaccine that will stop the disease before the brain will receive serious damage. Currently, the "mad cow disease" is difficult to diagnose and is considered incurable. Membrana.
