Protein expression changes in spinal muscular atrophy revealed with a novel antibody array technology.
Autosomal recessive proximal spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a severe neurodegenerative disease of childhood causing weakness and wasting secondary to motor neuron dysfunction. Over 97% of cases are caused by deletions or mutations within the survival motor neuron (SMN) gene. The SMN protein is highly expressed within brain, spinal cord and muscle, and is decreased in SMA patients. It has been shown to have an important role in RNA metabolism, but the reason for the specific motor neuron los...Expand abstract
