    Prion protein fibrils 1


    Recombinant proteins such as the prion protein shown here are often used to model how proteins misfold and sometimes polymerize in neurodegenerative disorders. This prion protein was expressed in E. coli, purified and fibrillized at pH 7. Image taken in 2004 for a research project by Roger Moore, Ph.D., at Rocky Mountain Laboratories that was published in 2007 in Biochemistry. This image was not used in the publication.
    Public Note
    Internal NoteThis image is also available in black & white, blue/green, yellow/purple, and a blue fade. Contact Ken Pekoc for any of those. Permission below: From: Marquardt, Julie (NIH/NIAID) [E] Hi Emily and Ken, Well, despite the Corbis (and other) scenarios, we can?t live in fear :0 So, I will have these added to Flickr and Emily yes, you can add this to the NIGMS library?just please credit NIAID/RML. Thanks! From: Pekoc, Ken (NIH/NIAID) [E] Hi Julie ? wanted you to be aware that I?ve shared the attached new images with the folks copied here from NIGMS for an article in one of their publications. Abbreviated email string below. Feel free to add these to our image library. Will leave it up to you whether we should put these on Flickr given our recent situation with Corbis; note that NIGMS also has internal and public image portals ? can you provide them with guidance on where these should be placed? Might also be good to keep them apprised of anything we learn from the Corbis situation. I can step out of the conversation from here ? thanks all.
