Stem Cell Model Offers Clues to Cause of Inherited ALS, University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Study

Published: Jun 22, 2011

An international team of scientists led by researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have used induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) derived from patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) to reveal for the first time how reduced levels of a specific protein may play a central role in causing at least one inherited form of the disease.
