spinal muscular atrophy AND physical therapy implications

Bradley J Turner, Nicholas J Parkinson, Kay E Davies, Kevin Talbot
Mutations in the ubiquitously expressed survival motor neuron 1 (SMN1) and superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) genes are selectively lethal to motor neurons in spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), respectively. Genetic association studies provide compelling evidence that SMN1 and SMN2 genotypes encoding lower SMN protein levels are implicated in sporadic ALS, suggesting that SMN expression is a potential determinant of ALS severity. We therefore sought genetic evidence of SMN involvement in ALS by generating transgenic mutant SOD1 mice on an Smn deficient background...

diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
