Oxidative stress in ALS: a mechanism of neurodegeneration and a therapeutic target.
The cause(s) of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is not fully understood in the vast majority of cases and the mechanisms involved in motor neuron degeneration are multi-factorial and complex.… Expand
Systemic Delivery of scAAV9 Expressing SMN Prolongs Survival in a Model of Spinal Muscular Atrophy
An adeno-associated virus vector expressing the survival motor neuron protein rescues mice with spinal muscular atrophy. Enough Protein to Reverse Spinal Muscular Atrophy A common neuromuscular… Expand

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis–frontotemporal dementia (ALS-FTD) constitutes a devastating disease spectrum characterized by 43-kDa TAR DNA-binding protein (TDP-43) pathology. Understanding how TDP-43… Expand
S[+] Apomorphine is a CNS penetrating activator of the Nrf2-ARE pathway with activity in mouse and patient fibroblast models of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis☆
Compelling evidence indicates that oxidative stress contributes to motor neuron injury in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), but antioxidant therapies have not yet achieved therapeutic benefit in… Expand

Optimised and Rapid Pre-clinical Screening in the SOD1G93A Transgenic Mouse Model of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
The human SOD1G93A transgenic mouse has been used extensively since its development in 1994 as a model for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). In that time, a great many insights into the toxicity… Expand
Advances, challenges and future directions for stem cell therapy in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a rapidly progressive neurodegenerative condition where loss of motor neurons within the brain and spinal cord leads to muscle atrophy, weakness, paralysis and… Expand
Structure and stability of casein micelles.
The structure and stability of casein micelles are determined in large measure by the amino acid sequences of the constituent alphas1-, beta-, and kappa- caseins. In this paper we review, and attempt… Expand
