From: Interspecies transmission to bovinized transgenic mice uncovers new features of a CH1641-like scrapie isolate

Source Recipient Passage # Survival perioda n/n bo
Sh294 brain (CH1641-like Scrapie) TgBoPrP 3 172 ± 4.5* 11/11
Cattle L-BSE brain TgBoPrP 3 144 ± 4.8* 12/12

  1. aSurvival periods are shown as mean survival days ± standard deviation.
  2. bNumber of PrPres-positive mice out of the total number of challenged mice. All inoculated mice showed unique clinical signs of the disease (Sh294 and L-BSE, circling behavior; C-BSE, head twitching; H-BSE, constant chewing of the bedding).
