The SOD1 mutant mouse is the most widely used model of human amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). To determine where and when the pathological changes of motor neuron disease begins, we performed a comprehensive spatiotemporal analysis of disease progression in SOD1(G93A) mice. Quantitative pathological analysis was performed in the same mice at multiple(More)
The "slow Wallerian degeneration" (Wld(S)) gene is neuroprotective in numerous models of axonal degeneration. Axonal degeneration is an early feature of disease progression in the SOD1G93A mouse, a widely used model of familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (fALS). We crossed the Wld(S) mouse with the SOD1G93A mouse to investigate whether the Wld(S) gene(More)
The effects of diabetes on the liver microsomal monooxygenase enzymes and carcinogen metabolism have been studied in rats. Treatment with streptozotocin causes a marked enhancement in microsomal N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) demethylase activity. The enhancement is due mainly to the induction of a high affinity NDMA demethylase (Km, approximately 0.05 mM)(More)
