While nothing was then known about the mechanisms of duplication, separation, and segregation of chromosomes in daughter cells, it was tempting to predict that the chromosomes contained genes. If genes were indeed passed from parent to offspring in order to transmit traits, they had also to be transmitted from parent cells to their descendants so that the traits transmitted to the fertilized ovum would be found in all cells to which it gave rise. This led to the chromosome theory of heredity, which likened chromosomes to strings of pearls, with each pearl being a gene responsible for a specific trait in the individual organism.
Moreover, the disease affected only animals that had been vaccinated against louping ill in 1935. Painstaking epidemiological study confirmed that the scrapie had been transmitted by the vaccine, and that only lot number two was to blame. When the origin of the 114 animals used to prepare that lot was traced, it proved that although the majority were of the blackface or greyface breeds (hitherto free of scrapie), eight lambs were Cheviots, which were known to be prone to the disease. Although perfectly healthy, those lambs had been in contact with ewes that had subsequently come down with scrapie.
The incubation period was only a little longer than in sheep: twenty-five and twenty-six months, respectively. This was the first time that scrapie had been described in goats, and a few years later Chelle would describe an instance of natural transmission in a female goat raised among a flock of sheep in which the disease had been present for several years. Although Cuillé and Chelle were able to transmit scrapie from sheep to goats, they were unable to transmit it to rabbits. Bertrand, Carré, and Lucam had tried without success to transmit the disease to rabbits, guinea pigs, and white mice.
