SOD1 in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: “Ambivalent” Behavior Connected to the Disease
TLDR
The “ambivalent” behavior of SOD1 in ALS disease will be resolved and sporadic ALS patients will be classified according to a novel biological signature, i.e., SOD localization.
SOD1, from Bench to Bed: New Role for the Oldest Protein Implicated in ALS
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the evolution of scientific knowledge about SOD1 protein in ALS patients, reviewing in detail the results obtained using peripheral blood cells in this research field and proposing a brief summary of the described clinical correlation.
Altered Intracellular Localization of SOD1 in Leukocytes from Patients with Sporadic Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
TLDR
Investigation of both distribution and expression profile of WT-SOD1 in leukocytes from 19 SALS patients and 17 healthy individuals shows that SOD1 accumulates in the nuclear compartment in a group of SALS subjects, adding further evidence to the hypothesis of an altered WT-sOD1 expression profile in peripheral blood mononuclear cells from patients with ALS.
SOD1 Transcriptional and Posttranscriptional Regulation and Its Potential Implications in ALS
TLDR
A molecular understanding of the processes involved in the regulation of SOD1 gene expression could not only unravel novel regulatory pathways that may govern cellular phenotypes and changes in diseases but also might reveal therapeutic targets and treatments.
RNA Molecular Signature Profiling in PBMCs of Sporadic ALS Patients: HSP70 Overexpression Is Associated with Nuclear SOD1
TLDR
The findings highlight the importance of the nuclear localization of SOD1 as a protective mechanism in sALS patients and demonstrate that, in this condition, the DNA damage is reduced, even under oxidative stress conditions.
Regulation of FMO and PON Detoxication Systems in ALS Human Tissues
TLDR
Findings suggest a role at FMO and PON genes in the development of ALS, and suggest that environmental toxin exposure may play a role in a subset of individuals who contract ALS by altering FMOand PON gene expression.
Nuclear Phospho-SOD1 Protects DNA from Oxidative Stress Damage in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
TLDR
During oxidative stress S OD1 is phosphorylated by Chk2 leading to its translocation in the nuclear compartment, in which SOD1 protects DNA from oxidative damage, which could represent an innovative therapeutic target in sALS patients.
Nuclear Phospho-SOD 1 Protects DNA from Oxidative Stress Damage in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
TLDR
During oxidative stress S OD1 is phosphorylated by Chk2 leading to its translocation in the nuclear compartment, in which SOD1 protects DNA from oxidative damage, which could represent an innovative therapeutic target in sALS patients.
Identifying, Targeting, and Exploiting a Common Misfolded, Toxic Conformation of SOD1 in ALS: A Dissertation
TLDR
This dissertation hypothesizes that modified, misfolded forms of WT SOD1 contribute to SALS disease progression in a manner similar to FALS linked mutant S OD1 in FALS, and the work presented in this dissertation supports this hypothesis.
Flavin-Containing Monooxygenase mRNA Levels are Up-Regulated in ALS Brain Areas in SOD1-Mutant Mice
TLDR
Flavin-containing monooxygenases (FMOs) are a family of microsomal enzymes involved in the oxygenation of a variety of nucleophilic heteroatom-containing xenobiotics and alteration of FMO gene expression is a consequence of the pathological environment linked to oxidative stress related to mutated SOD1.

Mutations in Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase gene are associated with familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
TLDR
Tight genetic linkage between FALS and a gene that encodes a cytosolic, Cu/Zn-binding superoxide dismutase (SOD1), a homodimeric metalloenzyme that catalyzes the dismutation of the toxic superoxide anion O–2 to O2 and H2O2 is reported.
Common molecular signature in SOD1 for both sporadic and familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
TLDR
Biotinylation reveals a 32-kDa, covalently cross-linked S OD1-containing protein species produced not only in FALS caused by SOD1 mutation, but also in SALS, suggesting a common step in the pathogenesis between SALS and FALS.

TLDR
Results indicate a common aggregation prone monomeric intermediate for wild type and fALS-associated mutant SODs and provides a link between sporadic and familial ALS.

Pathways and genes differentially expressed in the motor cortex of patients with sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
TLDR
Gene and sample numbers investigated allow pathway- and gene-based analyses by established error-correction methods, drawing a molecular portrait of the ALS motor cortex that faithfully represents many known disease features and uncovers several novel aspects of ALS pathology.
Mutations in the FUS/TLS Gene on Chromosome 16 Cause Familial Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
TLDR
Neuronal cytoplasmic protein aggregation and defective RNA metabolism thus appear to be common pathogenic mechanisms involved in ALS and possibly in other neurodegenerative disorders.
