Notes
Mice develop fatal progressive motorneuron disease, including weight loss from denervation-induced muscle atrophy and paralysis. The highest expressing line reached end stage disease between 8.5 and 11 months. No human SOD1 was expressed in progeny from transgenic females that also expressed a germ line Cre transgene. The effects of mutant SOD1 within motorneurons was assessed by mating human mutant SOD1-expressing transgenic mice with mice expressing Cre under control of the Islet-1 promoter to remove expression from motorneurons specifically.
