Abstract

Background: The results of serial passage of BSE in sheep are unknown.

Results: In vitro modeling shows a sheep genotype-dependent switch in prion protein type and loss of the ability to convert human prion protein.

Conclusion: Molecular evolution of sheep BSE prions in vitro is genotype-dependent and affects zoonotic potential.

Significance: Zoonotic risk might be predicted from cell-free modeling.
