Discovery of new ALS gene points to common role of cytoskeleton in disease
An international team of researchers co-led by John Landers, PhD, has identified KIF5A as a new gene associated with the development of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The discovery, published in the journal Neuron, advances the understanding of what causes ALS and further implicates the role of cytoskeletal defects in the axon as a common factor in the disease.Read more
