As part of our effort to study the role of reactive species in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), the goal of this work is to explore the correlation between nitration and oxidation of proteins and mutation of Cu, Zn-superoxide dismutase (SOD1) in ALS. Transgenic mice overexpressing the mutant Cu, Zn-superoxide dismutase (mSOD1) gene from humans with familial ALS, wild-type mice overexpressing the normal human SOD1 gene and normal mice without gene overexpression were used.
