Interferon-stimulated gene 15 as a general marker for acute and chronic neuronal injuries.


Activation of interferon (IFN) signaling in the central nervous system (CNS) is usually associated with inflammation. However, a robust activation of type I IFN-stimulated genes (ISGs) at pre-symptomatic stages occurs in the spinal cord of SOD1(G93A) mice, an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) animal model, without obvious signs of inflammation.
