I'll leave this as a comment (and pls feel free to ignore) but if I may make some slight wording suggestions of the info on your prion page: - "misfolded" may be a better term to use to describe the pathogenic form of PrP, as "mutated" suggests abnormalities in DNA/RNA (which can cause misfolded PrP in genetic prion diseases, hosts who have acquired prion diseases have no mutations in the PRNP gene typically) --

- I think your mention of prions causing Alzheimer's is a bit misleading, but for reasons I think I understand. There's an ongoing discussion in the field whether to call all protein misfolding neurodegenerative diseases prion diseases or not. This is contentious for reasons I wont bore you with here, but at this time its not believed prions (misfolded PrP) specifically cause AD!

Sorry for all this wall of text, I hope you don't mind my suggestions! I really loved your last paragraph too, I thought it was a unique interpretation of the "zombie protein" description so frequently used to describe prions. Wonderful work!!!
