A diverse range of functions has been proposed for mammalian prion protein or PrPC. The current study illustrates that PrPC is involved in regulating cell cycle dynamics, self-renewal and determining the fate of human embryonic stem cells. This work suggests that PrPC is involved in key activities that dictate the status of embryonic stem cells.
