Genes in ALSOD


Select Category Description
Definitive ALS gene Variants in these genes have been shown to increase the risk of ALS based on a statistical test. The highest class of statistical evidence comes from genetic linkage studies, however genome-wide association studies with appropriate functional evidence or strong replication evidence, may also be considered to indicate a gene having variants that can cause ALS.
Strong evidence Variants in these genes have been shown to increase ALS risk in well-conducted recent studies, but require replication or resolution of conflicting evidence.
Moderate evidence Variants in these genes have been associated with ALS in smaller studies or there may be very contradictory evidence.
Tenuous Genetic variants in these genes have been associated with ALS in smaller studies published some time ago that have not stood up to replication. They may also be genes that have been associated with ALS-like diseases, which are no longer recognised as a clinical diagnosis of ALS – for example some juvenile motor neuron disorders.
Unassigned Variants in these genes have been linked to ALS phenotype but the category has not yet been assigned.
