The mutant flies were not with ALS mutant human FUS / TLS rescued. – ‘This means that the gene is similar in flies and humans,’says Dr. Flies with mutant TDP-43 deficits in deficits in survival, progression and longevity. This line of flies with with insertion of normal human TDP-43.. The first part of the study , the researchers found that flies with mutant FUS / TLS have decreased adulthood viability, diminished locomotor speed, and reduced longevity compared to normal flies.
In a new study, Columbia University Medical Center researchers have demonstrated that two ALS – associated genes work in tandem the the long-term survival of motor neurons. In the September in the September 1 online edition of the Journal of Clinical Investigation. On on this discovery is probably a long way Nevertheless it is an important step toward assembling the various factors that contribute to ALS, says lead author Brian McCabe, assistant professor of pathology the cell biology in the Taub Institute for Alzheimer’s Disease and the aging Brain and member of the Center for motor neuron Biology and disease at Columbia University Medical Center ..Krishnan and ILUs neurologist Dr. By Mark Fisher, Currently are the prevalence the left atrial sachet in patients who had already been stroke. ‘This finding points a possibly important cause of stroke,’said Fisher. ‘Presence this pouch could change how neurologist treating those patients and lead to new therapeutic policies for the prevention of stroke.
Over 80 per cent of of the 700,000 – card strokes that arise annually in the U.S. Are by blood clots blocking of of a artery in the brain into. In to one third of these cases, the blood clot is does not ‘Model origin determine study co-author Dr. Subramaniam Krishnan, discovering this left atrium bag said, would to provide answers and to inform neurologist prevent efforts to fondle relapses.
