Prion peptide fragment that shares many physiochemical features with PrPSc
. Exhibits neurotoxicity caused by amplification of PrPC
-associated signaling responses and induces NF-κ
B-mediated apoptosis in the mouse neuroblastoma cell line N2a. Forms β
-sheet-rich, insoluble, protease-resistant fibrils and is used as a model to study prion diseases in vitro
