Model of Human Gene


Mutations in many genes, including C9orf72, SOD1, TARDBP, FUS, ANG, ALS2, SETX, andVAPB are involved in both familial and sporadic ALS/MND. They play a role in the functioning of neurons or are involved in regulating the production of various proteins and it is unclear how these mutations contribute to the death of motor neurons. Despite the growing list of involved genes in ALS/MND, research in this area is just beginning to expand.
