Discriminatory immunoblot of goats with PrP
accumulation in the brain stem. Glycosylation patterns of the 25 caprine isolates from Cyprus, the caprine (ZG01), ovine (486) and bovine (R8/07) BSE isolates and of the ovine scrapie isolate (Stdl. 171) are shown in a comparative tri-plot diagram. On the left axis is demonstrated the proportion of the di-glycosylated, on the right axis of the mono-glycosylated and on the axis below the un-glycosylated form of PrPSc of the overall signal in the western blot. The Cypriot samples as well as the ovine scrapie case can be clearly differentiated from the BSE samples.
