Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of SOD1

  • Southern blotting showed that the SOD1 gene is modified in the three orangutans that were investigated and that a further modification of the 5'-end of the gene had occurred in Ralfina [1].
  • In situ hybridization of the SOD1 cDNA human probe showed a heterozygous intra-chromosomal rearrangement of pair PPY XXI, possibly an insertion, in Ralfina [1].
