SOD1 or Superoxide dismutase 1 is a critical enzyme for free radical metabolism and serves as a major detoxifier in cellular metabolism. SOD1 mutations are associated with disease and in particular with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 1, or ALS, often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.” Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease that is characterized by the selective loss of upper and lower motor neurons. There are >100 mutations in SOD1 in humans but not all appear to be pathogenic. The clone MS785 is a monoclonal antibody generated against the Derlin-1-binding region of SOD1 (DBR), and it distinguished most ALS-causative SOD1 mutants from both wild-type and nontoxic mutants. Moreover, MS785 recognized endogenous SOD1 in B lymphocytes derived from 14 ALS patients carrying SOD1 mutations but not from 11 healthy controls, thus MS785 appears to selectively recognize all Derlin-1–interactive SOD1 mutants but not WT SOD1.
