New study on C9ORF72 and how it might cause FTD and motor neurone disease

An abnormality in the C9ORF72 gene is a common cause of both FTD and motor neurone disease. Recent work published in the journal Nature sheds new light on the way that C9ORF72 mutations cause these diseases. The abnormality in the C9ORF72 gene that causes both FTD and MND is what is called an expansion. This […]
