Abstract

Cu Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD)-like immunoreactivity (LI) was found within Lewy body-like inclusions (LBIs) in the spinal cords of patients with sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) by using an antibody to human Cu ZnSOD. LBIs were detected in the anterior horn cells in 10 of 20 patients with sporadic ALS. In each of these patients, 7 to 60% of LBIs showed Cu ZnSOD-LI. No Cu ZnSOD-LI was detected in intact neurons and glia in the 20 ALS patients, as well as in these cells in 10 normal control individuals. The skein-like inclusions and Bunina bodies, which were found in all of the 20 ALS cases, showed no Cu ZnSOD-LI. Thus, Cu ZnSOD appears to play roles in the production and/or degradation process of LBIs.
