Interaction Information:

Comment From stage P12 on, VUL but not RES motoneurons (VUL=vulnerable to motoneuron disease, RES=resistant to) of G93A-fast mice specifically showed an upregulation of genes involved in stress-related pathways, including protein ubiquitination, hypoxia and NRF2-mediated stress pathways. This stress-related response increased up to P26 but was abruptly lost at P32 and beyond.

Interaction-ID: 691

gene/protein mutant


increases_activity of

in motoneurons; from stage P12 up to P26
Comment Early salubrinal treatment led to low levels of BiP, no evidence of a UPR and no microglial activation at stage P38 and to early signs of a UPR, mild microglial activation and no loss of synaptic vesicles at neuromuscular junctions at stage P53 in mutant SOD1-G93A-fast mice (VUL) motoneurons.

in mutant SOD1-G93A-fast mice
Comment The stress-protecting factor CNTF effectively attenuated the axonal pathology in VUL motoneurons in mutant G93A-fast-mice.
