The findings by University of Florida Health researchers and their collaborators focus on the role of intervening, or generally nonprotein coding, DNA sequences within a gene. In one type of inherited form of ALS and other so-called repeat expansion disorders, those DNA sequences — known as introns — accidentally get left behind during the genetic coding process. For some of these disorders, the lingering mutant introns can be readily detected in tissue and white blood cells, creating a rapid and inexpensive way to detect repeat expansion disorders, the researchers found. Their findings were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. For more information, visit ufhealth. org/news.
