A single, prion-infected neuroblastoma cell labeled with green fluorescent protein is cultured on a feeder layer of uninfected cells. The prions secreted by the single infected cell are quantified by using the scrapie cell assay. The purpose of the project is to determine how prions are propagated in a chronically infected cell culture. Research and photograph by C.A. Baker, Ph.D., Research Associate, in the laboratory of C.
