    Abstract  Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a promising source of biomarkers in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Using the two-dimensional difference in gel electrophoresis (2-D-DIGE), we compared CSF samples from patients with ALS (n = 14) with those from normal controls (n = 14). Protein...

    A K17I mutation in the ANG gene encoding angiogenin has been identified in a case that we previously published as ALS with neuronal intranuclear protein inclusions (Seilhean et al. in Acta Neuropathol 108:81–87, 2004). These inclusions were immunoreactive for smooth muscle α-actin but...
