Diseases: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
SOD1 wt or SOD1G93A transgenic mouse, transfected with human wt SOD1 or human SOD1G93A
microglia (mouse) / motoneuron (rat) co-cultures
Reference: Xiao Q et al.(2007) Mutant SOD1(G93A) microglia are more neurotoxic relative to wild-type microglia J. Neurochem. 102: 2008-2019 [PMID: 17555556]

Interaction Information:

Comment There was a strong inverse correlation between the level of nitric oxide release and motoneuron injury. The more nitrate + nitrite produced, the fewer motoneuron survived in mSOD1G93A and wild-type-co-cultures.
