CHARACTERIZATION OF THE BOVINE SPONGIFORM ENCEPHALOPATHY (BSE) INFECTIOUS AGENT

Objective



The aims of this project is:

a. to demonstrate that Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) infectious agent is a nucleic acid/protein complex;
b. to reconstitute BSE infectivity in vitro;
c. to identify agent specific molecules.

The results will be:

a. the reconstitution experiments, which we propose to do, will clearly show if nucleic acids are part of slow viruses;
b. high quality immunological reagents or nucleic acid probes can be produced for use in clinical diagnosis and biomedical research of slow viruses worldwide.
