  1. The Cu and Zn isotope ratios of mice brains, expressed in the delta notation (as discussed in the text. The different samples are: MF1, 129, FvB and C57 BL/6 – wild-type mouse brains; PrP-KO (adult) prion protein deleted mouse brains, adult; PrP-KO (newborn) prion protein deleted mouse brains, new born; C4 – Cu binding domain of the prion protein deleted; TG20 – prion protein overexpressed; Line Harry – transgenic mouse brains with the genetic changes have no connection with Cu or Zn.
