BACKGROUND In the superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1)-G93A mouse model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), skeletal muscle is a key target of mutant SOD1 toxicity. However, the expression of factors that control the regenerative potential of the muscle is unknown in this model. OBJECTIVE To characterize the expression of satellite cell marker Pax7 and(More)
In the present study, we used the SOD1 (G93A) mutant transgenic mice as a model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). This model is widely used as a laboratory tool to study experimental treatments in vivo for ALS to investigate new therapeutic strategies for this neurodegenerative disease. Such studies require the objective quantification of different(More)
The non-toxic C fragment of tetanus toxin fused to the beta-galactosidase enzyme was analysed as a neuroanatomical tracer. After intramuscular injection in rat tongue, its location in the hypoglossal network was compared with other classic tracers such as neurotropic viruses. The hybrid protein reached second and higher-order neurons after crossing several(More)
Neurotrophic factors have been widely suggested as a treatment for multiple diseases including motorneuron pathologies, like Amyo-trophic Lateral Sclerosis. However, clinical trials in which growth factors have been systematically administered to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis patients have not been effective, owing in part to the short half-life of these(More)
Purpose-To determine whether the organisations more strategically committed to its stakeholders present better social and financial performance and, based on this relationship, know the state of the art of the Spanish sectors' approach to the sustainable development. Design/methodology/approach-This paper analyses the sustainability approach of a sample of(More)
