A team of researchers based at institutions in the United States and Germany has described the path amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) appears to take as it progresses through different areas of the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord).
A roundup of research about how the FUS gene and FUS protein may contribute to the development of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

The gene for FUS was associated in 2009 with some forms of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease).
Now, overlapping findings from four recent studies have revealed tantalizing clues about the molecular underpinnings of FUS-related forms of the disease.
