Submission of the Week
Prions are mis-folded proteins known to cause rapidly progressive and fatal neurodegenerative diseases. Following oral exposure, prions gain entry into peyer’s patches of the intestine and ultimately spread into the nervous system. CD11c+ cells have previously been discovered as potential prion vectors due to the expression of the chemokine receptor: CXCR5. CXCL13 secreted by follicular dendritic cells attracts CXCR5 bearing CD11c+ cells into lymphoid tissues, which in the case of prion pathogenesis, could cause the transport of prions from the initial site of infection into lymphoid tissues. Here researchers developed a novel CXCR5 knock-out model to investigate the role of CXCR5 CD11c+ cells in the pathogenesis of oral prion exposure.

F1000Posters is a unique open access repository for posters and slide presentations across biology and medicine. By keeping the work visible long after a meeting has ended it maximizes the return on the time, effort and money invested in creating each presentation. We also accept depositions from local meetings (e.g. PhD student days).
F1000Posters has received positive responses from presenters and societies alike, and we have support from leading journals and publishers including Nature, Science, PNAS, Elsevier, BioMed Central, PLoS, SAGE etc (see here for a full list of responses). More »
