27264826 The methylation status OF extracellular superoxide dismutase gene is associated with the size of cerebral infarction, degree of cerebral arteriosclerosis and severity of neurological impairment.
27002158 Primary astrocytes isolated from mutant human superoxide dismutase 1-overexpressing mice as well as human post-mortem ALS spinal cord-derived astrocytes induce motor neuron death in co-culture. Increasing total and mitochondrial NAD(+) content in ALS astrocytes increases oxidative stress resistance and reverts their toxicity toward co-cultured motor neurons.
26984187 In transgenic mice expressing SOD1, lower POMC levels were observed in hypothalamus in an ALS model.
26947057 Data show that transformation of voltage dependent anion channel VDAC1 (Deltapor1) yeast with human Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD1) completely restores the cell growth deficit.
26810478 the results of the study suggest that an inherent low autophagy capacity might cause the selective vulnerability of the motor system to mutant SOD1s.
26761025 H5N1 infection in lung epithelial cells decreased SOD1 expression at mRNA and protein levels.
26756888 The results of this study provided the first in vivo evidence that highly specific inhibition of calpains in neurons by Calpastatin delays motor axon death and substantially extends lifespan in the hSOD1G93A ALS mouse
26719414 SOD1 mutants designed to promote trimerization increase cell death.
26710998 This study supports the view that rAAVrh10-miR-SOD1 merits further development for the treatment of SOD1-linked Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in humans
26707483 we suggest that transduced Tat-SOD qualifies as an atheroprotective agent against oxidation-driven and inflammation-associated atherosclerosis
