Cell stress pathways in ALS The most common genetic cause of both Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is an intronic GGGGCC (G4C2) hexanucleotide repeat expansion in the gene C9orf72 (C9 FTD/ALS). This repeat likely elicits neurodegeneration at least in part through repeat associated non AUG initiated (RAN) translation of the repeats into dipeptide repeat proteins. Our own group has studied the mechanisms underlying RAN translation at C9orf72 repeats (C9 RAN). T...
