MalaCards based summary: Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 1, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is related to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 11 and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 21, and has symptoms including autosomal dominant inheritance, autosomal recessive inheritance and spasticity. An important gene associated with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 1 is SOD1 (Superoxide Dismutase 1, Soluble), and among its related pathways are Neuroscience and Cytoskeleton remodeling Neurofilaments. The drug riluzole has been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include sod1 gene located in chromosome 21, skeletal muscle and spinal cord, and related mouse phenotypes are nervous system and behavior/neurological.
Disease Ontology:10 The most common type of familial als caused by mutation located in sod1 gene located in chromosome 21.
Genetics Home Reference:23 Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive disease that affects motor neurons, which are specialized nerve cells that are important for controlling muscle movement and strength. These nerve cells are found in the spinal cord and the brain. In ALS, motor neurons die over time, leading to problems with muscle control and movement.
NIH Rare Diseases:45 Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (als), also referred to as "lou gehrig's disease," is a progressive motor neuron disease which leads to problems with muscle control and movement. there are various types of als, which are distinguished by their signs and symptoms and their cause. early symptoms may include muscle twitching, cramping, stiffness, or weakness, eventually followed by slurred speech and difficulty chewing or swallowing (dysphagia). as the disease progresses, individuals become weaker are are eventually wheelchair-dependent. death often results from respiratory failure within 2 to 10 years after the onset of symptoms. most affected individuals have a sporadic (not inherited) form of als; about 5-10% have a familial (inherited) form of the condition. familial als may caused by mutations in any one of several genes and the pattern of inheritance varies depending on the gene involved. treatment is generally supportive. last updated: 1/7/2013
MedlinePlus:35 Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (als) is a nervous system disease that attacks nerve cells called neurons in your brain and spinal cord. these neurons transmit messages from your brain and spinal cord to your voluntary muscles - the ones you can control, like in your arms and legs. at first, this causes mild muscle problems. some people notice trouble walking or running trouble writing speech problems eventually, you lose your strength and cannot move. when muscles in your chest fail, you cannot breathe. a breathing machine can help, but most people with als die from respiratory failure. the disease usually strikes between age 40 and 60. more men than women get it. no one knows what causes als. it can run in families, but usually it strikes at random. there is no cure. medicines can relieve symptoms and, sometimes, prolong survival. nih: national institute of neurological disorders and stroke
NINDS:46 Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), sometimes called Lou Gehrig's disease or classical motor neuron disease, is a rapidly progressive, invariably fatal neurological disease that attacks the nerve cells responsible for controlling voluntary muscles.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:67 Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: A neurodegenerative disorder affecting upper motor neurons in the brain and lower motor neurons in the brain stem and spinal cord, resulting in fatal paralysis. Sensory abnormalities are absent. The pathologic hallmarks of the disease include pallor of the corticospinal tract due to loss of motor neurons, presence of ubiquitin-positive inclusions within surviving motor neurons, and deposition of pathologic aggregates. The etiology of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is likely to be multifactorial, involving both genetic and environmental factors. The disease is inherited in 5-10% of the cases.
