Developing Motor Neurons in SMA Show Altered Protein Production

Motor neurons derived from people with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) showed changes in protein production at each stage of their development, from stem cells to fully mature nerve cells, a study discovered. Findings in this reported first-such study can be used to identify protein alterations that occur before the onset of symptoms, its scientists noted. They may also be useful as new biomarkers of disease processes or patient response to treatment, or as targets for…
