Stanford Researchers Identify SMA & ALS Linked Via Central Hub Molecule Vital to Protein Production

Dec 12, 2018 | ALS, SMA


Stanford University School of Medicine researchers found that a molecule called Activating Signal Cointegrator 1 (ASC-1) serves as “a central hub” for proteins involved in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), leading researchers to believe that both disorders are “more intimately tied to one another than previously thought.”
