    Department of Neuroscience, University of Siena, Italy
    Amyotroph Lateral Scler 11:210-5. 2010
    ..In addition, our findings strengthen the data reported previously and indicate that the G41S mutation is consistently associated with a uniform and dramatic, fast-progressing phenotype...

    Stefania Battistini
    Dept of Neuroscience, University of Siena, Siena, Italy
    J Neurol 252:782-8. 2005
    ..No SOD1 gene mutations have been identified in SALS cases. Within FALS cases, The most frequent mutation was the G41S identified in four FALS...

    Fabio Giannini
    Departments of Neurosciences, University of Siena, Italy
    Amyotroph Lateral Scler 11:216-9. 2010
    ..One patient experienced early sensory involvement, confirmed by nerve biopsy. We review sensory symptoms in SOD1 ALS and discuss its possible origin in D90A heterozygous patients...

    Claudia Ricci
    Department of Neuroscience, University of Siena, Italy
    Amyotroph Lateral Scler 11:481-5. 2010
    ..This property can result in a failure of the protein to fold and generation of toxic intracellular aggregates, suggesting a pathogenic role for the mutation...
  5. doi Lack of association of PON polymorphisms with sporadic ALS in an Italian population
    Claudia Ricci
    Department of Neuroscience Neurology Section, University of Siena, Siena, Italy
    Neurobiol Aging 32:552.e7-13. 2011
