A High-throughput and Pathophysiologically Relevant Astrocyte-motor Neuron Co-culture Assay for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Therapeutic Discovery
Authors:  Matthew J. Stopford, Scott P. Allen and Laura Ferraiuolo, date: 09/05/2019, view: 401, Q&A: 0
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is an adult onset neurological disorder characterized by loss of motor neurons leading to progressive muscle wasting and eventually death. Astrocytes play a key role in disease pathogenesis. However, the ability ...
