Experimental studies indicate prion aggregates rapidly transit throughout the central nervous system, yet the relationship between the prion structure and genetic modifiers that impact aggregate spread are poorly understood. We and others previously showed profound differences in the neuroinvasion of prions, depending on the strain. Using a series of established and new mouse models to alter the extracellular matrix or the prion protein, we investigated the determinants of prion propagation through the neuron and through the CNS .
