Genetic epidemiology of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Background Genetic studies have shown that C9orf72, SOD1, TARDBP and FUS are the most common mutated genes in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Here, we performed a meta-analysis to determine theExpand

De novo FUS gene mutations are associated with juvenile-onset sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in China
Juvenile amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a rare form of motor neuron disease and occurs before 25 years of age. Only very few sporadic cases of juvenile-onset ALS have been reported. Rare SOD1Expand

Screening for C9orf72 repeat expansions in Chinese amyotrophic lateral sclerosis patients
An intronic GGGGCC hexanucleotide repeat expansion in the C9orf72 gene was recently identified as a major cause of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia in whiteExpand

Screening of the TARDBP gene in familial and sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis patients of Chinese origin
TAR DNA-binding protein (TARDBP) mutations have been reported in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in different populations. Only a few studies have screened for TARDBP mutations inExpand
