N-terminal His-tagged full-length prion protein (PrPc). The PrPc -like conformation of the protein after refolding procedure was confirmed by high resolution NMR spectroscopy. The native His tagged PrPc is the ideal tool for in vitro/in vivo investigations of the behaviour of cellular prions. It may be used for protein-protein interaction studies as well as for in vitro/in vivo conversion studies.
