Species-specific description: Wang et al. (2015): "TAR DNA-binding protein 43 (TDP-43) [also called TARDBP] is a nuclear protein, but it is redistributed in the neuronal cytoplasm in both amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). ... We established transgenic pigs expressing mutant TDP-43 (M337V). This pig model shows severe phenotypes and early death."

This phene includes references to studies involving genetically modified organisms (GMO).
