To examine the mechanism(s) of disease underlying ALS, transgenic mouse models have been constructed that express aberrant neurofilaments or mutations in the abundant, cytoplasmic enzyme superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1). In addition to progressive we...

Scientific evidence is emerging to indicate that motor neuron injury in motor neuron disease may reflect a complex interplay between genetic factors, oxidative stress, and imbalance of the glutamatergic excitatory control of motor neurons, which m...
