NINDS:44 The motor neuron diseases (MNDs) are a group of progressive neurological disorders that destroy cells that control essential muscle activity such as speaking, walking, breathing, and swallowing.

MalaCards: Motor Neuron Disease, also known as motor neuron diseases, is related to lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia. An important gene associated with Motor Neuron Disease is SOD2 (superoxide dismutase 2, mitochondrial), and among its related pathways are Oxidative Stress and superoxide radicals degradation. The compounds mntmpyp and pyrogallol have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include the motor neurones, spinal cord and brain, and related mouse phenotypes are hearing/vestibular/ear and adipose tissue.

Disease Ontology:8 A neurodegenerative disease that is located in the motor neurones.
