  3. 3. Identification of pathways of degeneration and protection in motor neuron diseases

    Author : Susanne Nichterwitz; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Motor neuron diseases preferentially affect specific neuronal populations with distinct clinical features even if disease-causing genes are expressed in many cell types. In spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), somatic motor neurons are selectively vulnerable to a deficiency in the broadly expressed survival of motor neuron 1 (SMN1) gene. READ MORE
