Of mice, men and motor neurons

Helen J Newbery, Catherine M Abbott

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The use of mouse models has been of particular importance in studying the pathogenesis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Here, we describe both transgenic and classical mutants for which the genetic lesion is known. We draw attention, wherever possible, to pathological factors common to multiple models.
