In 2009, it was discovered that genetic mutations in the fused in sarcoma gene — FUS for short — were linked to some cases of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease).
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.
