Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Finding That Links ALS/Ataxia to Cellular Stress Opens New Approaches for Treatment

S(break)(break)cientists at University of Utah Health report for the first time that a protein, called Staufen1, accumulates in cells of patients suffering from degenerative ataxia or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

The research are published in Nature Communications
