|ALS: New clues to the cause and how future drugs might reverse disease|

Scientists have known that a protein called TDP-43 clumps together in brain cells of people with ALS. This protein is thought to cause muscle degeneration related to sporadic inclusion body myositis (sIBM), leading many researchers to think that TDP-43 is one of the causative factors in ALS and sIBM. Now, researchers found that a specific chemical modification promotes TDP-43 clumping in animals. They then reversed protein clumping in muscle cells and prevented sIBM-related muscle weakness.

A batch of single-cell protein has been produced by using electricity and carbon dioxide, report scientists. Protein produced in this way can be further developed for use as food and animal feed. The method releases food production from restrictions related to the environment. The protein can be produced anywhere renewable energy, such as solar energy, is available.
