Bax and Bcl-2 interaction in a transgenic mouse model of familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Abstract

It has been proposed that mutations in copper/zinc-superoxide dismutase (SOD1), the only proven cause of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), induce the disease by a toxic property that promotes apoptosis. Consistent with this, we have demonstrated that overexpression of Bcl-2, a protein that inhibits apoptosis, attenuates neurodegeneration produced by the… (More)
