Cultured glial cells are resistant to the effects of motor neurone disease-associated SOD1 mutations.


Free radical damage has been implicated in the pathophysiology of motor neurone disease (MND); mutations have been identified in the gene encoding Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD1). There is evidence that glial cell dysfunction may contribute to motor neurone injury, but the exact role of glial cells in MND has yet to be established. The aim of this study… (More)
